Ron K. 4 years ago 'State of Fear' by Michael Crichton. It's not a typical book for him. There's a <i>good</i> mix of fact with fiction. You may never look at the news the same way after reading it. I highly recommend it. + 0 Votes I just bumped in to Neil Asher Tony Hopkinson Updated - 4 years ago Read Hilldiggers, started working backwards. Iain Bank's Culture crossed with John Ringo style mayhem, would be a good description. If you haven't tried it, Lois McMaster Bujold's Curse of Challion and it's two follow ups are well worth a read. And if you like stuff in that vein Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel books, while they look a bit strange are a very thoughtful and compelling read. If SF isn't your thing, then Apsley Cherry-Garrard's "The worst journey in the world" Should keep you busy for a bit. + 0 Votes Just been introduced to Scott Lynch's Gentleman ******* series. neilb@uk 4 years ago Cracking read.

SciFi, sarcasm, satire, squeaky clean hero. Great read. + 0 Votes I have to say it... NexS 4 years ago I've really enjoyed Stephen King's works. Specifically The Dark Tower series.
