Your fave poly books - fiction and non fiction
This is one of the questions that came out of this month's polyamory social (Broward Florida): what books would you recommend people to read that are poly friendly and/or poly relevant? Fiction or non fiction

I know this topic has been talked to death, but there is always something new that someone has come up with.

having done a search on here of books... I came up with these threads...


I know there are others... anyone? Lovingradiance is the queen of books... maybe send her a PM to see if she will add her two cents. I'm not a reader, but I have benefited greatly from others discussion on here about books that are available.

I love Tymber Dalton for fictional books in regards to polyamory. She has some intense BD/SM ones as well.

She is on amazon and you can download a kindle reader onto your pc.

For fantasy ... Jacqueline Carey has a number of books, collectivly known as "Kushiel's Legacy."

I saw someone on here with the premise of the books in their sig: "Love as thou wilt"

These opened my eyes in terms of how I realized I felt, despite the fact that they are "only" fantasy. :D

There is also a booked called The One. Which ultimately is kind of a not all good and not all bad of poly. I first heard of poly through fiction.

I will check out the books you mentioned.

I just discovered "Letters About Lovers," it's about a poly woman writing letters to a friend about her lovers, set in 1906. I'd never heard of the author before (Katarina Cameron) and wasn't expecting much, but actually it was really quite good.

I just read "The Ethical Slut", a nonfiction. That's what really got me super interested in figuring out what poly is all about.

Just about any book by Robert Heinlein (sci-fi) that I have ever read has had a poly angle, although in Stranger in a Strange Land, he does seem to have a homophobic streak. Still well worth reading though.

Marion Zimmerman Bradley's Darkover series has some poly related themes as well (also sci-fi).

I don't know if they've already been listed as poly related fiction because I confess I haven't looked through this whole thread, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

The well-known fantasy/sci-fi author Ursula K. Le Guin deals with polygamy or other forms of non-monoamory in many of her tales, I could for example suggest her great collection of short stories The Birthday of the World.

The best sci-fi there is!
