After a bit of time looking it up, I'm pretty sure OP's pic is from loli hentai, although I haven't read it so I'm not sure.

Something I've been wanting to add to this project, though is taking time to draft out so I will do a rough edit here;

Gaj Treaty

Between the people that serve God, Gnod and the place where the garden grows - Gaj is perhaps a human form of entity; techgnod is the culmination of all decaying substances and will eventually consume life as a whole, while the treaty details that all three are in balance and exist according to one another. A fourth entity may be included once it is named.

Check out "True names" and "cookie monster" by verner vinge. I might just have nostalgia for them, but they seem like nice narrative exploration of computer intelligence.

I would suggest doing a tour of all of Miyazaki's films. I find that all of his movies have a similar vibe that can't be parallel even by other Anime.

 No.565

Sherlock Hound (1984)

First 6 episodes were directed by Miyazaki, he had to quit in order to work on Nausicaa. It’s much more light hearted.

You remember the scene "The seven days of fire" ? it’s was realized by Hideaki Hanno, who later on directed Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I’d recommend Berserk. The atmosphere isn’t exactly the same tho.

If you liked the ecological themes you might like Gon, which is a superb drawn story of a little dinosaur engaging with other animal forms. If you want a graphic novel there's Puma Blues which is a beatiful story as well.

Do sushi have their favourite magazines?
I thought that reading them may be good way to "deboor*" myself.
So what are you reading? Do you have a ritual that accompanies the act?
Maybe you found something extremely interesting in a publication and
want to share?

*deboor - no idea if this makes sense in english, but it is literal
translation of my country's saying "when a boor tastes some culture".

Lapham's Quarterly. It's a great way to get a wide survey of a lot of different writings that you'd normally have a very hard time finding in print. I used to read Cabinet, but it's not in print anymore, thinking about buying back issues and reading them as a supplement.

Thanks for the Jean le Flambeur recommendation. I immediately downloaded and look forward to reading. When you said that "The Martian" is your favorite you mentioned no author and there are far too many hits on an internet search of "martian" for me to tell which book you like. Can you specify?

Currently trying to get into sci-fi right now I'm reading
>Blood Music
It's about a scientist who injects himself with some cells he's working on. It follows how said cells affected him and the world around him. It's not much of an action sci-fi story and more of a watch how shit goes down story. It's nice if you want details, but the characters are kind of flat and serve more as mechanisms for the story. It deals with themes of consciousness, hive minds (which is why I read it), and post humanism. The far side pick kind of reminds me of the book

>Biopunk Dystopias: Genetic Engineering, Society and Science Fiction

It's academic so you need to know a few literacy concepts, but it's nothing you can't google. So far it just covered the history of biopunk and tried to define it, pretty interesting stuff. In later chapters it's supposed to define why modern culture likes biopunk so much.

The Martian by andy weir. I figured it would be kinda known because of the movie. I read it when it was a web serial, so seeing it get made into a movie was a really cool experience.
Also while I'm here I've got to recommend the sci fi compendium "the ascent of wonder" I'm only about a third of the way in but I've enjoyed every story so far.

Finished A Fire upon the Deep, and got partway through the sequel.
An overall good book, though I enjoyed it more for it's sci-fi world building than the political intrigue aspects. It takes place in a galaxy where fundamental physics change as you further from the core, allowing ftl travel and more complex technology.

Also tried the sequel a deepness in the sky, but it spent much more time on the politics than the original and I didn't make it to the end
