WHICH ONES AND WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?
Scottish author Iain Banks, sadly passed but this book struck a chord (groan). Espedair Street is a real place in the town of Paisley in Scotland near me.
Espedair Street by Iain Banks
Like his books good writer IMO keeps ya on your toes.
Always liked there books since I was teenager, and still do.
The Stand - Stephen King. I read that every other year or so. And of course The Lord of The Rings Trilogy. Same thing. I have a deep Spiritual connection to these two. Just for fun though -- Dean Koontz, any of his earlier works. Faye Kellerman, James Patterson and I am working my way through Agatha Christie... bucket list thing. Oh, and Pearl S. Buck gets dusted of every so often.
If you like dark urban fantasy, I cannot recommend highly enough Craig Schaeffer. He's got a bunch of different series.
I truly read more historical fiction than anything else, but I'm currently re-reading Jasper Fforde's series. I own a pair of series with magic as the main element of fun. Guess that's fantasy?
Ursula LeGuin's books, Zenna Henderson, and oh yes, Dean Koontz!
Baseball has a storied history of fantastic writers. Especially short stories.
Lots of World War I era.
Pop psychology books seem infinitely more useful than academic psychology books.
When I travelled a lot, I got into the historical novels of authors like Leon Uris and James Mitchner. In the mid 90s I started reading Steve Berry's more esoteric historical novels. He's a great story teller, but very liberal in his views/writing and tends to be preachy.
I loved The Stand and it rates as probably my #2 book. Have read it over and over. If you like that one, have you read Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon? If not, you should.
