I had this idea for a long, long post
That would talk about, oh, all sorts of things, and what it is we do when we write, and the various ways in which things can be interpreted, and how bad we tend to be at examining our various preconceptions and beliefs.

And I concluded that it would do no good at all. But here's the thing. I'm clearly not reading enough excellent new sf and fantasy written by and about people whose cultural background is radically different from my own. (In case you don't know me, I am a white middle-class English mother who has unhealthy obsessions with traditional music and small shiny gadgets).

Recommend me some. Encourage others to.

Thanks for mentioning Schroeder's Mennonite background, which I wasn't aware of. Part of the world-building in Leigh Brackett's The Long Tomorrow is a New Mennonite movement in the post-apocalypse world.
