People do this altogether too often, and I've done it before. Still, I'm going to ask again otherwise I'll just end up reading the entirety of Frank Herbert's Dune series and then start in on David Wingrove's Chung Kuo. While both are great, neither paints a particularly rosy picture of humanity. I may even watch The Battle of Algiers. And stuff. At any rate, Zül commands that you choose any or all of the following and recommend something for me.
a) book, fiction b) book, non-fiction c) movie d) musical artist e) visual artist f) drink g) foodstuff h) wildcard/user's choice
I'll be most grateful, and Zül will not smite thee.
