While, I don’t necessarily consider myself part of the Superversive movement, I admire its goals, and have some reading suggestions. Some of these are recent, and some will be older works. This list is going to be by author, with a few suggestions from each author. I hope to do a few other installments perhaps, featuring film, boardgames, perhaps music. This installment will include fiction, poetry, philosophy, and theology.
For now, I’m going to call these lists Appendix R. I don’t pretend this will be as stirring as Appendix N, but we don’t need that right now, though if you want to get something like that there’s the Superversive recommended list HERE. We need a start though. A place to begin Restoration.
Edgar Rice Burroughs: John Carter of Mars series
Christina Rosetti: The Goblin Market
Ivan Throne: The Nine Laws
Some will note that the philosophy of Mr. Pieper and Mr. Throne are vastly different. In some ways, this is true, but in others, they focus on very different aspects of life. Mr. Pieper’s work is about things that are or have been sacred, and that relationship. Mr. Throne, on the other hand, teaches about viewing the secular world as inherently hostile, and how to act in relation to that.
And yes, there are other authors and books that would work for this. I’m keeping it to 10 for simplicity. I do not wish to overwhelm, and I have other media I’ll talk about later.
