[close] We're a new group building a reliable bookshelf-database of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror books that do NOT mention sexual violence or dubious sexual consent. We're inspired by Sarah Gailey's essay urging authors to "Do Better" https://www.tor.com/2016/08/22/do-better-sexual-violence-in-sff/ Join our long term project by sharing your recent reads in our monthly chat. Once a month we update the bookshelf database but recommendations are welcome everyday of the year!
