#chillread in other worlds #rwpchat

July 21, 2015

Recent releases of Seveneves and Nemesis games (although it is suggested that you read the rest of the series first) both highlight the #chillread elements in some science fiction. I don’t want to say too much, for fear of spoilers, but both of these novels have big changes happening to earth, and the different responses highlight two very different imagined futures.  Both of these novels demonstrate the power of #chillread and science fiction.

A rather lovely fantasy novel, The goblin emperor, is a powerful #chillread for different reasons.  There are political games, crimes which need solving, and characters growing in confidence, with many events occurring in the chill of winter.

None of these are books to chill to as they each have disturbing aspects to their stories, but they all have moments of joy and wonder as well as terror and sorrow.

You can always look at amazing images instead
