Karla (middleearthtraveller) | 5 comments Looking for books for a class I'm teaching next semester. So far I've got For the Win (Doctorow), Feed (MT Anderson) and REady Player One (Cline--doesn't really fit, but may try to find a way to make it fit). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Dee | 2 comments "The Left Hand of Darkness" by Ursula Le Guin features characters that morph between sexes and therefore genders and an Earthman who observers them. Also, Octavia Butler did many books (like Wild Seed) that involve race and enslavement. Both these books are science fiction and involve differing degrees of technology but I don't think the tech is addressed as much more than an setting, as such im not sure if they will be of value to you. I'll be interested in which titles you choose and why.
