I've just finished with chapter 5 of Godel, Escher, Bach and I'm really diggin it so far but I feel like I'm not getting everything I should out of it.
I'm grasping the concepts finely enough but some of the examples elude me a bit and I feel as if I'm skipping ahead a bit because I'm too excited to see where he goes next. I also feel like maybe these chapters are supposed to be a bit barebones to frame later topics? Should I just make sure I gasp the central idea of every chapter and move on for now? Also are there any accompanying works, chapter summaries, blog posts, whatever the hell that would be good to go along with it. Thanks /lit/.
Essential anarchist fiction

Since some Stormfag /pol/tard has started a thread on "essential nationalist literature" I thought it a good idea to have a thread on essential anarchist *fiction*. There's plenty of great anarchist political science, and I'm sure we've all read Conquest of Bread, ABCs of Anarchism, God and the State, and so on. I'm more interested in seeing whether there's any good anarchist, anti-nationalist *fiction* which I've missed reading.
My list of essential anarchist fiction:
- The Dispossessed by Ursula K. LeGuin
- The entire Elric saga by Michael Moorcock, as well as his Nestor Makhno alternate history stories like The Steel Tsar
- V for Vendetta (the graphic novel) by Alan Moore
- Good Omens by Terry Patchett and Neil Gaiman; not sure if people would consider it explicitly anarchist, but it's definitely humanist and anti-authoritarian
(Please don't post any Ayn Rand crap here. There is no such thing as "anarcho-capitalism." Capitalism is classist, and anarchism has no social classes by definition.)

Please confine all John Green hate to this thread. Post quotes and shit if ya want. Anything minor that doesn't need its own thread should go here. Anything major should go here as well, frankly. Just as long as it's a meme & it's supreme, it's welcome here, ya hear? Treat this thread like the orphanage you were sent to when your mom abandoned you on the street.
C'mon guys, admit it, we may hate him on the inside but we all know he's our secret mascot.
