I love these threads, I get to hear about new authors
If you want an epic sci fi series, get thee to the used book bins/ebay and get the Battletech series. Galaxy spanning space opera in jumpships and Mechs.
Several writers, all of them good. Political intrigue, warring cultures, combat...all there.
And about 30 books to get through. And not the ‘dumb fun’ it first appears to be. Quite philosophically deep actually.
Woo, new authors for reading list thread.
I love David Weber, but I will admit that I am tired of the Harrington series, but Apocolypse Troll and the Excaliber Alternative are two of my favorites.
Ryk E. Spoor and his Grand Central Arena is a wild read, too.
I am not sure if I like Kristine Rusch’s Wreck Divers series yet, I’ve read two of them, and I just don’t know yet. :)
For a good old fashion space opera series, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller have their Liadan Universe set. That will keep you up until 5am reading. LOL
I just bought A Soldier’s Duty by Jean Johnson, but I haven’t started that one. The blurb and cover look interesting though.
