Alright, so what are you favorite pieces of antifascist fiction?

· Web · 3 · 1

@ajroach42 Very recently, the Amberlough series by Lara Elena Donnelly. I've only read the first one so far, which is more about the rise of fascism in a society and the start of the antifa resistance against it, but I believe things continue to escalate throughout the series.

@ajroach42 the whole assassins creed series is p good, although it isn’t really “cleanly” anti fascist. There’s a lot of other weird shit, but the base conflict of Templars vs assassins is fundamentally a fascist vs antifascist fight.

@Ethancdavenport I was looking for prose, but that's a good start.

@mpjgregoire
I have not read that. I will seek it out.

@ajroach42 I like Cory Doctorow's stuff. Walkaway, Unauthorized Bread, etc.

@emacsomancer
Agreed. As far as modern writers go, he's among the only ones dealing with these topics in an accessible manner. Maybe the only one I'm aware of, definitely the only one I can think of.

@ajroach42 Are you looking for specifically anti-fascist, or anti-authoritarian? For anti-authoritarian, there's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Heinlein, The Peace War and A Deepness in the Sky by Vernor Vinge, the latter containing a society literally called The Emergency, Jupiter Symphony by A.C. Harrison, speaking of Harrisons the Stainless Steel Rat series by Harry Harrison, the Harvest of Stars series by Poul Anderson, and the Fall Revolution series by Ken MacLeod.

@freakazoid Most of these names have been on my radar for a while, but the only one I've read is The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (and thats been probably 15 years ago?)

I'll look in to some.

@ajroach42 While Heinlein was certainly problematic when it comes to both gender and race, he did write a bunch of anti-authoritarian stuff, and his juveniles tend to just avoid both topics. Citizen of the Galaxy is one of his better anti-authoritarian juveniles.
