I am a voracious reader. I am always have at least one book going, sometimes more than one.
For instance, at home I am discovering Neil Gaiman with "Anansi Boys". Only about half way through, but I like him already. I will probably go on a Gaiman binge like I recently did with Peter F. Hamilton.
First Hamilton book I read was "Pandora's Star". Then I read pretty much everything he ever wrote while waiting for the sequel, "Judas Unchained" to be released. I still can't decide if he is really good, or if it's just mind candy. But I enjoy reading most of his stuff and that's all I really care about.
Dan Simmons is an absolute literary God. I will read anything he writes. Although, I think his "Ilium/Olympos" duo started out as possibly the most grandeous epic ever attempted, and ended with a "oh my god what the fuck have I gotten myself into and how do I get out of this with even a scrap of dignity intact." It was the only time he had ever disappointed me. Well, maybe "Hollow Man". But everything else, fantastic.
Orson Scott Card hit his stride with "Ender's Game", "Xenocide", and "Speaker For The Dead". Don't waste your time with anything else.
Chris Moriarty! Incredible debut with "Spin State". I had great hopes for the sequel, "Spin Control". Still haven't made up my mind. I read Spin State several times. So far, I've only read Spin Control once. But Moriarty is high on my watch list.
Time for supper. Thanks for stopping by. Let's do this again soon.
