Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendations for March

March 20th, 2022 · No Comments · Books, City Library, E-Books, Main Branch, Teens, West Branch

Science Fiction has a long history of allowing us to explore difficult subjects, but somewhat removed from our own reality. Military Sci-Fi stories are one of the ways this genre of literature allows us to explore what life in the military involves and what combat can do to a person’s mind. Many of the best stories explore philosophical and ethical issues of war and how it affects soldiers and civilians. It also allows authors to reexamine historical events and frame their criticism of war. David Drake is one author that often uses his books to educate those who have not experienced war and what the powers and limits of the military are.

While there is excitement and adventure to be found in these tales, we can also find books that take a deep dive into one terrifying aspect of the human experience. Whether these books offer an escape from reality or a better understanding of current events, we hope you’ll find something of value in this month’s selection.
