In tandem with ideas of human rights, Heterodox Academy released a new edition of All Minus One, a graphic depiction of John Stuart Mill’s work on freedom of speech. Download it for free and be swept away.
Also on the heavy side was Sand by Hugh Howey. Set in the dystopian future, a family unites to save themselves from the terrible circumstances of the present, and the intractable waves of sand that threaten to bury them all.
