Welcome to /r/literature, a community for deeper discussions of plays, poetry, short stories, and novels. Discussions of literary criticism, literary history, literary theory, and critical theory are also welcome--strongly encouraged, even.
A subreddit for all things Thomas Pynchon. Mr. Pynchon has a reputation for being a "tough" writer. Don't let that intimidate you. Whether you're a Ph.D in Postmodern Literature or a brand new reader, we welcome everyone who has an interest in traversing head-long into his works.
A subreddit for really great, insightful articles and discussion. Please follow reddiquette, and READ THE ARTICLE before voting or discussing. Downvotes should only be used if something doesn’t contribute to intelligent discussion, not just because you disagree. Please use the report button if you see something that doesn’t belong.
This is a moderated subreddit. It is our intent and purpose to foster and encourage in-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres, or publishing in a safe, supportive environment. If you're looking for help with a personal book recommendation, consult our Weekly Recommendation Thread, Suggested Reading page, or ask in r/suggestmeabook.
**A place to discuss published SF**—novels, short stories, comics, images, and more. Not sure if a book is SF? Then post it! Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alt. History, Postmodern Lit., and more are all welcome here. **The key is that it be speculative, not that it fit some arbitrary genre guidelines**. Any sort of link or text post is welcome as long as it is about printed / text / static SF material.
