The Earthsea books by Le Guin, set in a high fantasy world following a boy from a village that later on became a far-flung wizard, tale-spun and song-sung in taverns and inns all across Earthsea. The wizards in that universe understood the importance of virginity, and sealed their libido under spells of chastity, living essentially in celibacy, though some have broken this seal to get children.

I found a PDF one time of a book "Die Nachtkinder" surprisingly it was in English about a man who worked menial jobs all day then daydreamed the rest of the day that he was a kid again going on adventures and redoing his life in several timelines he thought of. It sounds lame but it was very detailed and you could see how the daydreaming affected his personal life and psyche. I guess The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty would be similar. I haven't been able to find it again and that sucks, good book if you can find it.

I'm about 70 pages into Frank Herbert's "The White Plague," a science-fiction thriller about a man-made disease that kills all women in revenge for the death of the dark hero's wife. It's kind of boring, time-wasting, low focus reading like Tom Clancy, but I am getting tripped up in the details of genetic science. I wanted to try something standalone by the author before getting around to Dune. Frank is taking a very positive view of wifedom, but at least they are written like objects to be moved, demanded, and shuffled around as property in most cases. As a result of this protect-the-wife attitude they've spread the plague from the countries it was supposed to be limited to all over the world. One skump is supposed to be put into a vacumn chamber like you'd put a golf bag in the closet and it's entertaining me to imagine how that's going to turn out for her. The protagonist is pretty much Uncle Ted, if you're into that.

man without money (about a daniel suelo who lived in the desert and survives by eating dumpster food. he's kind of a normie in that he socializes with people, but he's gay. )
