Just finished Redemption Ark by Reynolds. I am really getting into his stuff.
Quite a fun one. Plays out like a normal doctor who tv episode, this one being set on a pirate radio ship back in the day, and the only complaint was that Tennant's voice for one of male characters was a little iffy for me.
Empire by Orson Scott Card
I haven't, which is weird given how prolific the guy seems to be. I'll have to give him a try.
This was a great short story. Stephen King and son doing Sons of Anarchy.
The cover would lead you to believe it's smut, but it's not; it's a Lord John Grey novella that takes place during the French and Indian War. Two bucks for the Kindle.
I have read the first three books in her Outlander series - then simply got side-tracked by Steven Erikson's massive Malazan series, but plan to return to Gabaldon's series again. Well-written, well-researched, with great character development - good stuff.
Wondering if anyone has read Wool by Hugh Howey yet? I've only read the sample parts (on a kindle). Pretty damn good so far though!
That one is high on my must-read list.
After getting back to Honor Harrington, I've realized what the problem I have with these books are: there's no dramatic tension. Basically the enemies in these books are paper tigers and by the time Honor (or her allies) meet them, they are no real threat. It is actually a trend I see in a lot of millitary SF.
My wife handed me this one. Never played the game this is based on and I've never been a big Adams fan. It definitely fits in with Adams' style of normal people getting lost in an uncontrolled automated system, but it is mostly pretty lightweight.
another Dark Tower Novel ?!?!?!
HAVE TO READ THIS
Everglades by Randy Wayne White
I just finished Robopocalypse. It is a reconstructed history of the human resistance groups following a war against thinking machines. Aside from being a little too prepackaged for a movie, it is a fun, good read.
I'm reading it now. It's really good.
The Dark Tower novel (volume 4.5 apparently) was very satisfying. Now to see what all the fuss is about...
Well this is an easy series to get into.
And am on to:
