"Traitor Baru Cormorant" by S. Dickinson is a book, and I just got to its finish.
It's about fighting colonization in a fictional world from within a colonizing nation's own organization.
I would say that it's good, but also sad and hard to stomach, on account of folks having no good options within an organization built on subjugation.
Kim S. Robinson's Aurora is a good book about star colonizing, with an uncommon and stimulating mood, which I roughly sum up as "This was a bad plan. Why did our grandfolks think this would work? Also, our cohort didn't sign up for this. How about just going back now?"
As a bonus, it's primary narrator is a highly skillful ship AI that thinks a lot about if it's now displaying conscious thought or not.
This is just to say
I did finish off
that half of a Trinidadian dish
that my companion brought back
from our dining-out last Friday
and which said companion
was planning to finish
but didn't follow through on
prior to going off for vacation
it was so hot
far past my usual limits
I'm a big fan of this old #glorb photo from my youth.
