Queer Jewish first contact story

5 stars

A Half-Built Garden by Ruthanna Emrys is a beautiful, extremely Jewish, super queer story about a diverse future world facing first contact not as an alien invasion, but as something possibly more threatening: a well-intentioned helper, certain in their knowledge of what help is needed before ever setting foot on the planet.

what follows is high stakes negotiations, not just with the aliens, but also between different factions of humans (the watersheds, the corporations and the old state powers) and within factions and families. the watersheds might be healing planet earth, but the corporations still haven't learned that infinite growth isn't possible, and they want everything the new visitors are offering (and more)

Lemony Snicket: Poison for Breakfast (Hardcover, 2021, Liveright) 4 stars

Fantastic, Funny and Thinky!

5 stars

Poison For Breakfast is a very interesting, surprisingly funny, philosophical-as-advertised story. it purports to tell the true tale of what happened the day the author found a note saying "You had poison for breakfast", and it's very believable, until you remember that Lemony Snicket is not just a pseudonym but also a character in A Series Of Unfortunate Events. but Poison For Breakfast did manage to remind me what I like about philosophy ... which is honestly pretty hard to describe, and there's a cat demanding my attention, so, thanks for reading! check this book out!
