I'd buy some Warhammer 40K but that **** is either out of print or hella expensive on the internet. I have a few regular Warhammer books though. Charmingly dunderheaded. Dan Abnett writes some cool comics though. Without him we probably never would have gotten a Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

It was recommended to me because I liked Ender's Game. They said "dystopian space politics" and I was sold, but your dunderhead comment has shaken my confidence.

Do you actually know anything about Warhammer? Cause it's the most "unwashed incel" literature out there.

That made me think of the Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin, even though dystopian is not really the right way to describe that book. Have you ever tried it?

I read that book years ago, Marie, attracted by the great title and its mysterious-looking cover art. I enjoyed it, as I recall, but I never felt any need to reread it tbh. That's partly because I favour non-fiction these days, and a book of fantasy has to be really exceptional to attract me now.

Today, for example, I just finished a short account: The Rosetta Stone by Richard Parkinson. As with any book of Egyptian history, it is punctuated with the phrase "now in the British Museum", which gives the account a kind of added, guilty pride to Londoners like me. We took so many artifacts from that poor country, but London's "Cleopatra's Needle", to my surprise, wasn't actually one of them: "It was presented to the United Kingdom in 1819 by the ruler of Egypt and Sudan Muhammad Ali, in commemoration of the victories of Lord Nelson at the Battle of the Nile and Sir Ralph Abercromby at the Battle of Alexandria in 1801." Also, it had nothing to do with any Cleopatra: it dates from 1450 BCE and should more properly be called Thutmoses III's Needle. (The famous Cleopatra was on the throne of Egypt about 1300 years after the construction of the Needle: she probably saw it as some ghastly old piece of junk! )



Thanks to wikipedia for making me sound smart, and here's the link with various nerdy but curious details: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleopa...Needle,_London

The Heritage of Music by Anca Seidlova and Katherine Binney Shippen

I picked this out of the going to the garbage bin from a junior high library and it stayed in my to read closet for about a decade. It starts with ancient music from around the world then quickly jumps to the Ancient Greeks and ends with Stockhausen on the final page. I love the way the authors are so enthusiastic about every composer they cover.

It was published in 1963. Jazz was only mentioned in regards to how it informed classical music with what seemed like a careful omission of any names. Quite a bit was written about negro spirituals but nothing at all on the blues and rock’n’roll. Despite the uncomfortable omissions without even a slight nod to mention it’s out of the purview of the book it’s still a fantastic authoritative resource on the history of western music.

I can see using this book to help with new additions to Freak Fighter.
