African/Asian novels that are NOT about the diaspora to the West

While I appreciate and value the narratives of people and of characters in their journey to move to the West for whatever reason, I want to read about the stories of the people who stay home.

I want to know about and read the stories (albeit fictional) of people from Zimbabwe or Nigeria or India or Vietnam who are set there. And of course, I would much prefer if they were written by the citizens of their own countries.

Please give me your best recommendations.

EDIT: Wow, I did not expect to have so many suggestions. Thank you so much to everyone who commented. I’ll make sure to go through each and every one.

The r/Fantasy 2021 Top Novels Poll: Voting!

Hi everyone! It's time for another one of r/Fantasy's big lists!

The voting has now closed Thanks to everyone who voted. We will work on putting together the results, but it will take at least some amount of time.

Back after a short absence - r/Fantasy's Top Novels poll. I know some of you have been waiting patiently for this. Who have you been reading? Any new favorites? Have a classic you think is great? It's time to vote for it!

Okay, on to the part that matters most - how to vote!

1. Make a list of YOUR top TEN favorite books/series in a new post in this thread

Just post your top ten series or individual books. If the book is part of a series, then we'll count is as the series. For example, if The Dream Thieves is your favorite Raven Cycle novel, it'll be a vote for The Raven Cycle, so please try and list the series title. If the book is standalone, (for example The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune), it'll be listed by itself.

2. Only one book from any single series, please, with a few exceptions

Everything in the same world will get one entry. Realm of the Elderlings, Inda, Riyria, Broken Empire, Wars of Light and Shadow, Earthsea... you get the idea.

Books that are only barely set on the same world won't be clumped together, for instance things like The Lions of Al-Rassan and The Sarantine Mosaic.

That said, in the end I'll be deciding on a per-case basis, though the previous list is a good guide for what things will be grouped together.

3. Please format your voting posts correctly.

The votes will be tallied with a script, so proper formatting is especially important to ensure it all goes smoothly. Incorrectly formatted votes will not count. The mods are going to be lenient with warnings and will help you fix it, but ultimately your vote is your responsibility.

To format correctly:

  • Put each vote on a new line. To do so, keep a blank line between every vote OR put two spaces before pressing enter. Making it a bulleted list is fine and likely easiest if you're using New Reddit.

  • Format your vote as Title by Author or as Title - Author. If unsure, please look at how most do it. Italics or bolding should be perfectly fine. Common mistakes are putting the author first, listing just the story name, omitting the "-" or "by" separator...please do not do that or your vote will not be counted.

  • **PLEASE take the time

... keep reading on reddit ➑

I'm Caitlin Goerlich. I released my debut Young Adult novel, The Silent Summer, on May 28th. I have a Spinal Cord Injury and am a Wheelchair User. I'm Also a YouTuber and an Adaptive Athlete. Ask Me Anything!

Hey Everyone!

My name is Caitlin. I am 28 years old. And I’m ready to answer all your questions.

I am excited that I officially released my debut young adult novel, The Silent Summer (a summer love story), on May 28th! It has been a long-time coming. I’ve wanted to be a published author pretty much my whole life. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play Store, and Kobo.

I was diagnosed with kyphoscoliosis (a combination of kyphosis and scoliosis) at the age of one. Then, I had major surgeries when I was three years old. There were many complications which lead me to having spinal nerve damage causing paralysis from the waist down. My main diagnosis is spinal cord injury (SCI).

Proof: https://imgur.com/a/yTIgy2n

Some facts about me:

  • Introduced to adaptive sports at the age of six (1999): track & field, table tennis, and archery. Also participated in adaptive fencing for a couple years (2008-2010).
  • Have my Bachelor’s Degree in English with a focus on Creative Writing.
  • I self-published my first book, The Silent Summer (mentioned earlier) and plan to publish more books in the future.
  • I have a YouTube channel where I post a variety of videos: Reactions, Caitlin Answers, Wiki-Wheelz Talk, My Top 10, and more.
  • I now also have a Patreon where I post uncut versions of my videos and exclusive writing content.
  • I am also the chairperson for the Tri-State Wheelchair Athletic Association board.

Feel free to ask me anything!

Is it true that 97% of amateur writers won't finish a novel once they've started?

I came across this randomly and it seems to be a common statistic cited in writing circles, but there's never a source. At least as far as I can tell. Part of me just wants to accept it as true because it makes me feel that much more encouraged to finish my novel, but it might be bullshit. In any case I'm just curious if this is based on anything empirical.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but it is OK to read and enjoy trashy-popcorn-novel l-beach-books. It is way more important to actually be reading, and especially given the the wild emotions in the last year, there is nothing wrong with putting the booklist away for a bit.

I love reading, always have, but after being laid off and not reading on my commute, I stopped for a good 6 months. I look at my home library of novels next on my list and am overwhelmed.

Fortunately, Little Libraries are popular in my area, and I have picked up several whodunit thrillers, adventure novels, and horror books. I am currently reading "Cyclops" by Clive Cussler and couldn't be happier.

Don't judge anyone, nor yourself on their choice of literature. Sometimes we read to think, sometimes to emote, and sometimes to forget.

Apparently it’s fine to β€˜fix’ the Prequels with television shows, comics and novels etc., but do the same with the Sequels and it’s the worst thing ever...

I’m just... ugh. Sick of the hypocrisy. This is mainly triggered by a review of the latest Darth Vader comic run which, as spoiler free as I can, ties into The Rise of Skywalker.

I love the Sequels (Rise is my favourite) and this comic run, yet everyone acts like this is Disney trying to do a patch job. Which is fine and kind of is, but the Clone Wars show is just as bad, yet it’s praised as the greatest thing ever (I love TCW too, don’t @ me).

The hypocrisy wears a bit thin. And it’s frustrating me.

Looking for a 13yo boy dealing with trauma. He would prefer a Graphic Novel if possible or something easy and short to read. Hes not much of a reader.

He has a 15yo sister who is an avid reader and I would love a suggestion for her as well.

They are suffering through a traumatic divorce, military movement from country to country, and physical abuse.

Things aren't better yet, but the mom is separating from this lifestyle and working to build a healthy life for them as a single mother.

They are my neice and nephew and I will get to see a whole lot more of them in the next two months. I want to give them gifts that are meaningful and profound and solutions that they will find through story.

All suggestions appreciated

Edit: Thank you all so much for the wonderful suggestions! I have saved them in a list and i will have gifts for years to come. I really appreciate all of the support and kind words.

Also, thanks for the comments on how I worded the first sentence. Lol. Didn't mean to throw anyone iff.

Godblight Novel Discussion Thread (SPOILERS WITHIN)

So Godblight has been released now, and I'm sure at least some more of you are as keen as me and have already read it. What are your thoughts?

Personally, I really enjoyed the book. plenty of good action, enjoyable characters (I really liked Rotigus, Illyane NatasΓ© and Felix), and most importantly it set up some great plot threads to follow up on later:

  • Nurgle's wound that he received from the Emperor and the possible effects it will have later down the line
  • Fabian the Historian finding out about Imperium Secundus
  • The mention that the Emperor is apparently waking up
  • The rift that Guilliman just created between himself and the Grey Knights
  • Cawl investigating the Pharos device

My favourite chapter was without a doubt the one where Guilliman, Illyane NatasΓ© and Donas Maxim have a big discussion on what makes a God. Some fascinating lore-gubbinz in that one for us to pore over!

New Guy Gavriel Kay novel to be published in May 2022

Guy Gavriel Kay's next novel will be called All the Seas of the WorldΒ and will be published in May 2022.

The novel is set in "the world of A Brightness Long Ago," his previous novel. Most of Kay's fiction is set in that same world, starting with 1995's The Lions of Al-Rassan, but the announcement implies it may be set closer in time and space to Brightness, itself a prequel to 2016's Children of Earth and Sky.

The novel will be published by Berkley in the US, Penguin Canada and Hodder & Stoughton in the UK.

Great post about why (some) women love romance novels

I’ve been lurking this sub for a couple years and have always loved y’all’s recs and discussions. :) but I am not proud to say that I’ve always been a little embarrassed when talking about liking any sort of romance books IRL β€” if asked what I’m currently reading and it’s a romance, I’ve sometimes even lied and said the most recent book of another genre. But there’s always something that makes romance my comfort genre and something I’m never tired of, and it’s not just the happy endings.

I was scrolling on tumblr today and found this post discussing the subject and was blown away because some of the commenters verbalized things I’ve never admitted to myself.

For anyone who doesn’t want to click the link, my favorite quote is:

β€œWatch how many romance novel protagonists fall in love with a man who happens to be rich or handsome, but she didn’t give in until his behavior changed and he starts mentoring her, or providing for her, or being gentle toward her, nourishing her, listening to her, appreciating her… I suspect romance novels are looked down upon not for being juvenile formulaic β€œbeach reads” but because they paint a fantasy world that leaves men feeling uncomfortable or even emasculated. But whether you’re a Midwest housewife or a big city CEO, women who read romance novels just want to read about men loving women the way women are expected love everyone elseβ€”with a nurturing and protective form of unswerving loyalty. Great sex they don’t have to die for is also a huge bonus, but the *romance* part of the novel is genuinely more about the woman being appreciated (for her beauty or spunk or intelligence at first, and then for all of her by the end).”

I don’t know if this is something that will resonate with any of you, but I thought it was worth sharing.
