Ben Bova - Peacekeepers

1st time in 14 years I'm re-reading this. Hope it holds up well.

I've read some Ben Bova. Some were great, others crap. His Moon books were amazing, a fantastic and realistic look at nanotech and our early steps at space exploration and capitalism. His first Mars book was good too, but the sequel was a bit crap.


Just read:
Jon Courtenay Grimwood - 'Lucifer's Dragon', trashy, but quite intelligent scifi
Dan Rhodes - 'Timoleon Vieta Come Home', funny twisted parody/modern take on Lassie
Neil Gaiman - 'Stardust', modern (kinda) fairytale

And currently reading Jennifer Donnelly - 'A Gathering Light', seems good so far.

H2T, have you read Neverwhere? Rich characters, good story--I highly recommend it if you like Neil Gaiman's writing style.

I'm currently reading Xanth: The Quest for Magic by Piers Anthony. Like it so far....

Yeah, good book, and was quite a good TV series iirc. You read American Gods by him? It's his best I think. You would definately like it if you liked Stardust and Neverwhere.

Piers Anthony is the 'comedy' fantasy writer isnt he? I quite enjoyed the last book of his I read, but he is no where near as funny as Pratchett.

American Gods is a good read, I am a bit of a fan of Mr Gaimans style.

He did a book of short stories which is worth a read as is Coraline.

I've just started reading Millennium People by JG Ballard

I really liked American Gods as well (though I wish I had a stronger background in god mythology because I know I missed several references).

For those of you interested in graphic novels, Neil Gaiman's Sandman series is ace.

Piers Anthony is quite funny (in a different way than Pratchett)--I'm enjoying the series. I have a pile of Pratchett books to start in on when I'm finished with Xanth.

Good Omens, by Pratchett and Gaimen is a cracking book.

I was into Piers Anthony in the '80s, and have 47 of his books and there are loads more I need to complete the set.

For thoughtful reading try Tarot, but a lot of people don't like it...The "Bio Of A Space Tyrant" series is also good, but yet again some people don't like parts of that story.

Ok, just bought Gaiman's short story collection. 'Smoke and Mirrors' I think it's called. Will report back when I get round to reading it (It's in the queue atm).

I have a copy of Good Omens signed to me by Terry Pratchett - we also have a few signed Discworlds (some personalised, one or two not).

Apparently there's so many signed copies the unsigned ones are more valuable

Also recently read Neil Gaiman's "Don't Panic: Douglas Adams and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" which was a good read, some nice background info to the books, series, records, towel....

My mother passed on The Shipping News by Annie Proulx. I vaguely remembered the Kevin Spacey film that was based on it, and didnt imagine that the book would interest me. I expected a very womanish book (not to be sexist but women usualy write from a distinctive point of view, and repeat the same themes (especialy the women writers my mother usualy likes)). I was pleasantly surprised. the writing style feels fresh and clear, the characters full, the setting real, the story touching. I'm enjoying it.

I liked Forge Of God and the follow up Anvil of Stars .. not so good but still good if a bit odd.

Finished the Tawney Man trilogy from Robin Hobb a few days ago and just finished rereading Footfall by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle yesterday.... a great invasion story. Now reading book one of the liveship traders

I'm re-reading Maus a Survivors Tale: My Father Bleeds History, by Art Spiegelman

Quote:
Spiegelman, a stalwart of the underground comics scene of the 1960s and '70s, interviewed his father, Vladek, a Holocaust survivor living outside New York City, about his experiences. The artist then deftly translated that story into a graphic novel. By portraying a true story of the Holocaust in comic form--the Jews are mice, the Germans cats, the Poles pigs, the French frogs, and the Americans dogs--Spiegelman compels the reader to imagine the action, to fill in the blanks that are so often shied away from. Reading Maus, you are forced to examine the Holocaust anew.
I love this book. It portrays a true story of the holocaust written in a form that most people would dismiss as "childish" or not suitable for such serious subject matter. Not only is it beautifully illustrated but also the story contains interesting symbolism and a compelling personal story of amazing perseverance and survival.

Yes, that's a running joke in Discworld circles... I've got all the books signed, mostly personalised, including the companions and maps, by Pterry, Josh Kirby (RIP), Paul Kidby, Stephen Briggs & Stephen Player (think that's all... might have missed someone out)

so far i am on book 12 of clive cusslers dirk pitt novels. there not bad, cusslers not a great writer, but is entertaining and usually a wide ranging in scope. The only down point i would say is that cussler tends to put himself in the books. no big problem really its juts increases the cheese factor 1000%

I've just finished reading Ben Elton's latest, Past Mortem. Its a fairly entertaining read but tbh whodunits are not Elton's strong point. I managed to figure out who the killer was by about 2/3 of the way through the book.

Dan Brown - Deception Point. It's ok, not as good as his biggest hit, The Da Vinci Code. It's a light hearted mystery/thriller.

Michael Connelly, John Goddard and of course the ever inspirational John Grisham are all considerably better at writing these types of novels.
