In particular things in relation to anarchy (though not necessarily anarchist writing)

I am really curious what the folks who contribute to this site have been enjoying reading of late. There is enough diversity of perspective here that I expect there are a bunch of things I haven't encountered.

It ought to go without saying, but I am curious about not only what the long time and regular poosters have been reading, but also what folks new to the site have been enjoying or exploring.

I was going to edit this for a typo, but I think "long time and regular poosters" describes us well.

attentat
and i'm not sure if i'm exactly enjoying it but little, big (an old fantasy novel that is pretty unusual in style). it's sort of odd, which i appreciate.

i am missing science fiction. :(

Did you happen to hear the listener feedback in response to CrimethInc's recent review of Attentat on their podcast? I feel like I should read this, now.
i have not heard that feedback. i tried to listen to the interview itself but it was gone before i got to it.
what did the feedback say? i hear the most recent podcast is all dissing on nihilism in general. (or is that what you're talking about?)
Oh yeah that is totally what I was talking about. The podcast itself only disses on nihilism through its broadcasting of the feedback of two people who apparently really hate Attentat (and nihilism in general), though.

According to the hosts of the show, they got a lot of heated feedback on their review of Attentat, and decided to share some of it. But I haven't read the thing yet so I don't really have any context for how angry these people were.

Green Mars, part two of the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. Haven't given it enough thought to really critique or analyze but it's satisfying hard sci-fi that involves a disjointed effort to revolt against national and corporate control of (colonized) Mars, and has some really amusing anarchist characters.

Also been trying to find as much as possible regarding anarchist and anti-authoritarian critiques of family structures and the education system. "What the hell is the family?" was a decent read.

Hopefully soon going to finally read both The Reproduction of Daily Life and The Revolution of Everyday Life.
