Book review: The Handmaid's Tale: A Novel by Margaret Atwood

Can you imagine sexism and homophobia mingling with government? Considering that it really happens, I'm sure you can. I don't know how many times I've read this scary but plausible tale, which is set in the near future. If you like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, A Clockwork Orange, Brave New World, or other dystopic novels, give this one a try.

Book review: The Left Hand of Darkness (Remembering Tomorrow) by Ursula K. Guin

The author of the Earthsea books brings readers to a frozen world that challenges traditional views of gender and society. Both exciting and fascinating, the adventures of Earth Ambassador Genly Ai on the planet Winter represent science fiction storytelling at its best!
