@naga since we are at a deadline and no one is giving new nominations here are two shots:

* Ted Chiang "Stories of Your Life and Others" it's a story collection. Title story is about encounter with civilisation that sees world very differently than we do.

* Stanisław Lem "The Star Diaries" also a story collection, containing various adventures of Ijin Tichy. This one is somewhat (a lot) satirical, but still touches deep subjects as all Lem.

@jacek Thanks. I need to hit up my wishlist (or TBR pile) and add a couple, too.

You know what, I'll toss one more on, but a very different one.

The Book of Wonder by Edward Plunkett, Lord Dunsany.

It's a short story collection, over 100 years old, and free on Amazon and Gutenberg.

@jessmahler @jacek Thanks. I also notice we've mostly missed the booming subgenre of "contemporary fantasy written by white women," so I may put a couple of those on there when I do it today.

@jessmahler @jacek Adding Magic Bites, by Ilona Andrews. A contemporary fantasy with a mercenary woman in a magical-apocalypse setting. First in a series.

@naga @jacek Maybe something by L. Rowyn? We can read white women writers w/o reading normative writers.

@jessmahler @jacek I'm making the poll right now. Can you suggest something specific?

SFFBookclub nominations 

@naga @jacek Ah... I alread read A Rational Arrangement (and highly recommend). How about A Princess, Her Dragon, and Their Prince?
