>>7237980 It's fine. Grimdark Alice in Wonderland for young adults. Not super innovative but not poorly done either.
>>7238004 Are you looking for fantasy? The SF/F thread is pretty good. Otherwise it's hard to respond, there are dozens of books with good quality writing published since 2000. I usually get the impression that /lit/ doesn't read much contemporary stuff but I do, let me know what you're looking for and I'll try to help.
>>7238059 Good quality science fiction is a plus. Azimov, Clarke, Huxley(BNW), Bradbury(F451), Voggenut( Slauterhouse-Five) Catch-22, Gibson(Neuromancer), House of Leaves kind of stuff that shouldn't be past 2000… Also, fantasy but kind of the Sandman series.
>>7238149 Okay, I know all of those except Sandman pretty well. Does "past 2000" mean before 2000 or after? I'll answer you both ways:
>pre-2000 Ursula Le Guin - The Dispossessed, The Left Hand of Darkness, Earthsea series Gene Wolfe - The Fifth Head of Cerberus Philip K. Dick - The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
>post-2000 China Mieville - The City & the City, Embassytown, Bas-Lag series Kim Stanley Robinson - 2312 Iain M. Banks - Culture series
Hope this helps or you get at least one new idea from my suggestions
>>7238275 >recommending 2312 >not recommending mars trilogy Edgecore >PKD >listing his shit lel He wrote one good book, The Man in the High Castle. Everything else was rushed with no revision and under the influence of amphetamines which finally rotted his brain and caused a series of psychotic episodes.
>>7238373 KSR I only did that way because that way I could slot him into "post-2000."
Man in the High Castle is one of his best books but it doesn't fit as comfortably into "science fiction" as the rest of his work. Even that one is sloppy in some ways. PKD is a mixed bag but on the whole definitely worth reading.
