    Finished Project Hail Mary for the Tildes book club discussion.

    Finished Giovannis room which is tragic and beautifully written.

    Currently still reading Erotic Stories for Punjabi widows. I'm about halfway through. There is a lot of fun in this book but also dread and fear. I don't know whether to expect a happy ending.

    I'm also partway through the Alice network which is a spy story with an edge of tragedy.

    This isn't grimdark. It's been a long time but I remember a lot of horse riding competitions on various planets, mixed with mysteries. I prefer Moon's other work

    I also enjoyed Vorkosigan saga. Bujold is awesome. I've enjoyed nearly all of Moon's work except her Serrano series but I haven't read her newest books.

    Elizabeth Moon also wrote a fun space opera revenge series called Vatta's War starting with Trading in Danger. I'm also a fan of her fantasy work. Glad I could add to your to read list.

    If you are looking for another satisfying first contact book, I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Moon Remnant Population. I'm about 75 percent finished with Project Hail Mary. It's getting exciting
