Sigils (2021, Green Magic Publishers, Green Magic) 4 stars

A pocket guide to sigils and their use, from chaos magic to grimoires, with a …

mostly historical

4 stars

good if you want to learn the history of sigils. it also has a good number of examples of "old school" sigils and crafting technique. it only touches modern thought sigils, so, if you're looking for that, go elsewhere.

yes and more

5 stars

i liked how the storytelling shifted and adapted with the story change that we have between the two groups. the discovery of the different human settlements and their societies is fascinating, thought-provoking and poetic all at once. i loved the ending, even if i had to read it multiple times to be sure. i will miss Dex and Mosscap. :(((

Charming as can be... but also more

5 stars

Probably even lower on dramatic tension than the first book, but that's just fine -- that's not what's needed here. Instead we have a gentle journey between various human settlements as the background to Dex and Mosscrops' developing relationship and their respective struggles with making sense of life.

i want more of this

5 stars

as per title. more stories without the usual american conflicts and cartoony villains. more utopias and less dystopias. more writing that challenges our belief and makes us think, even if shortly, about the possibility of a different world. the relationship between the two characters is beautifully narrated.

Cozy but thought-provoking

5 stars

My first Becky Chambers book, and I think I finally understand the enthusiasm. Wonderful developing relationship between Dex and Mosscap, lots of nature, and woven throughout the story, and increasing towards the end, the struggle to find meaning in life.

A perfect cup of #solarpunk tea

5 stars

Despite living in a utopia, a dissatisfied monk embarks upon a journey of self-discovery, illuminated by a charmingly inquisitive robot. Felt like a perfect cup of tea, served by a best friend with a warm embrace. This is #solarpunk.
