I like Iain M. Banks and I’m currently re-reading Look to Windward because in Red Plenty it was described it as an example of a 20th century Marxian idyll.

It’s good and all but I’m reading the Culture now as kind of all premised on Prometheanism / fully automated luxury communism.

I’m gonna reread A Wizard of Earthsea (last read as a young teen!) by Ursula K. Le Guin next as in Half-Earth Socialism they describe that as Jennerite, anti-humanisation of nature and that is more my bag lately.


@neil Love both. I still have one final (😥) Culture novel to read and I still have all the other Earthsea books ahead of me.
