Sorry voat outage knocked me back.

The Seafort Saga is very libertarian.

Castle Federation is personal freedom centered

Empire's Corps drags in the later books but good.

Soldier of Legion, Legion Series is again ok.

Temporary Duty can be fun if you have any experience in the military.

I agree. I've been looking for good fantasy and science fiction books, but the past few books I got were filled to the brim with space niggers, feminism, faggotry and rampant marxism. Can you recommend some good books? It's exhausting to find diamonds in the politically correct heap of shit that is modern publishing.

I just read 600 pages of this the last two days so thats my recommendation. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I also made a post a week ago or so in v/books about a unique apocolypse book that the name eacapes me. If you would like me to I can come up with many more, are you into stand alones or series? The Name of the Wind is two parts with a novella. The other is stand alone

Yeah, I could use some good recommendations! I prefer series, for the sole reason that I dislike running out of shit to read and having to look for more. I've been reading 'the second apocalypse', 'the powder mage trilogy', and 'the demon cycle', all of which I found enjoyable.

Political correctness rules publishing. Publishers and their editors are terrified of being criticized in any way for being "incorrect" on social issues. The censorship imposed on writers has risen to insane levels. Fear of having their works rejected has caused writers to self-censor, which is a disgusting thing to witness.

Apart from the massive PC censorship in publishing, which has risen to heights unseen since the Victorians, the prevalence of women in the industry has greatly changed the nature of the books getting into print. They are much more emotion-driven, and much less based on rational analysis. Science fiction is less about mind-bending science than it is about touchie-feelie gender and species blurring ... and, of course, man-bashing. Fiction is filled with man-bashing, but women are never criticized collectively for their tendencies.

Because of both political correctness and the dominance of women in the industry, publishing is not in a good place these days.

I agree with you. Right now I am on the first book of Ann Leckie's trilogy, and the feminism "is strong with this one." The protagonist is a female embodied AI shipmind, the military officers seem to be mostly female while the men are cannon fodder. Meh. I have been reading mostly SF/ Fantasy since third grade (1964) and have sampled quite a few female writers. In the late '60's, Andre Norton, C. L. Moore and others came across my horizon, followed by Ann Sheldon (Tiptree), Ursula Le Guin and Bradley. I still remember thinking Tiptree wrote funny. Every decade there were standout stories by women, but, I still did not get get a strong connection. I never found myself searching avidly for their next book, like I did haunting the magazine racks waiting for Galaxy to put out the next Amber book. This holds true to this day, with the exception of Julian May's nine book cycle (in this case cycle refers to a true circle). There seems to me that there is a semi-permeable biological membrane in action, both in the output and the intake, that causes a gender based antipathy to certain narrative styles. Is Ann Leckie better than James Cory? Objectively, I don't know. Subjectively, no she is not. Am I a chauvinist? I don't think so. Still, I hope that a feminist editorial agenda is not quashing upcoming male writers simply because they are male.
