Reading project, week ending 12 Jul 2020

What have I read this week? Sorry, I forgot to post this, even though it was ready on time!

Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson

This is a speculative fiction novel set in future Toronto, when the main part of the city has been abandoned by the authorities. I did enjoy it, although there are some elements that didn’t age well, but I found the world and the characters interesting.

Seed to Harvest by Octavia E. Butler

This is a collection of science fiction novels, about an offshoot of humanity who have a variety of psychic powers. The books in the collection are Wild Seed, Mind of My Mind, Clay’s Ark and Patternmaster. I enjoyed Wild Seed the most, and Clay’s Ark the least, but found problematic elements in all of them. The stories themselves are interesting, I just had some issues with some of the content.

Lilith’s Brood by Octavia E. Butler

This is a collection of science fiction novels, about the remnants of humanity who are sav d by an alien race. The books in the collection are Dawn, Adulthood Rites and Imago. I found the stories interesting, and they were an easy read, but like Seed to Harvest, I had some issues with the content.
