There was a Metafilter post a while back and it was about a story that was like a science fiction/horror story. It's told like a series of transmissions I think? From what I recall it was about aliens invading people's brains, something about a fruit? And a color? I'm so sorry this is such a hopeless description but maybe it's enough to trigger something in the hivemind?
Can someone point me to a post (in ask.me I think) that featured examples of good science-fiction in non-Western Europe settings? [more inside]
Another neat new member: Hugo-winning author Tim Pratt just joined up to comment in a thread about the wonderful Israeli adaptation of one of his short stories, "Impossible Dreams."
Metafilter's own Charles Stross: Ask him anything (Previously on the blue, seems like it might be a better fit here)
What are some of your favorite AskMe threads which are focused on recommending sci-fi books? It seems like this is a topic which comes up some with some regularity, and I even posted one myself a few years ago (and got great results). So I'm sure there are many more similar threads out there, and I'd love to see the ones you think are best. Thanks!
