@rixx since you are pretty vocal about sci-fi I'd love to hear your opinion on that book, if you've read it already.

I just finished "a closed and common orbit" in three days flat, which I think is a record time for me, at least considering the last couple of years. And it further cemented Becky Chambers' position at the top of my contemporary sci-fi authors list. It is really fucking gripping, the worldbuilding is great and she manages to weave in themes of sapiency, neuroatypicalness and dysphoria very naturally. I love it.

Well, since I abandoned my literary account and you'll have to bear with me here, have a look at this comprehensive take on genre stigma against sci-fi (as Ian McEwan recently demonstrated so beautifully): theguardian.com/books/2019/apr

Comments very welcome.

@rixx Du kennst dich doch mit Nikola aus, oder? Weißt du, wie ich Zeilenumbrüche in einen Shortcode reinbekomme?

(Kontext: Ich will Zitate schöner formulieren. Aktuell mit einem Shortcode namens quote:

<div class=quote>
<div class=quote-border></div>
<div class=quote-content>
${ data }
</div>
</div>

Vielleicht hast du ja eine bessere Idee, wie man das managen könnte?)

Wie viele Leute braucht man wohl, um Brüssel oder Straßburg für ein paar Tage lahmzulegen?
