so at the risk of sounding contaminated by the girlfriend's ways, i'm kind of excited to read my most recent book aquisition. its nicola griffith's book ammonite. i picked it up 'cause of a variety of reasons; i was doing "kills" (which is when i go through & pull old, unsellable books off the shelves, delete them from the computer's inventory, & then send them back to the publisher) & next to one of the kills david (the gm) had written "KEEP ONE COPY!!! DON'T MESS WITH KUNG-FU LESBIANS!!!" so i picked up one of the books by the author. the one with the pretty proto-nautalis marking. its pretty lesbo probably, but not offensively so. anyhow, check out the plot! this colony of people (on a diffrent planet) came down with this plauge a couple of hundred years ago, & all the dudes died. right, sounds a little bit contrived, but its actually probably not! anyhow, listen to the rest: somehow the chicks managed to reproduce (?!) & now, a couple of hundred years later, some heavily vaccined anthropologist/linguist is going to the planet to try to figure out what the fuck is going on.
i've only just cracked it, but the author knows her fucking stuff. she throws in the requisite details & shit. maybe nichola griffith is really famous to everybody but me & i'm all like king breeder for not knowing about her, but i'm thinking this book is going to be good. because it is about an anthropologist who goes to another planet. fucking talk about nice work if you can get it. thats pretty much job number one i think. plus, girl on girl action is virtually assured.
