Flatlands

This month we’ve decided to go for the gold. We have a novel (Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie) AND a novella (Flatlands by Joseph Abbott).

Both stories directly address perception and reality. One from the perspective of an outlier of society and the other, a member of a subservient race. Both investigating what modern society can be and both totally nuts. Enjoy!

We thought it might be fun to stoke this fire with a little something extra this month. Our Movie of the Month is Lawnmower Man (1992) directed by Brett Leonard (I recommend the Director’s Cut). Not required, but interesting to consider as we think about husks of humans, realities, and the demigods that rule them.
