The Frontier saga's are a very good read.

Dr Sidewalk

Are they separated books or just another Wheeloftimewannabe? I had a laugh at my friends when I knew Robert Jordan died leaving the 20th volume of the saga unfinished (of course not for the dead, what I mourned, but for the saga and my friends' faces).

Cory Doctorow's books are pretty fine. I can tell it now after having read three or four of them. "Little Brother" is a must.

Try "The Trilisk Ruins (Parker Interstellar Travels)" Michael McCloskey a bit slow to start but it soon gathers pace.

Another Sci-fi writer found...

Postby DrSidewalk » Wed Sep 03, 2014 6:17 am

I have just finished the 7th book in the AMP series of books, written by Stephen Arseneault.
Really enjoyed them, and looking forward to the 8th book, due out very soon.

I'm also awaiting on the next Fontiers saga book by Ryk Brown. It was due out in August but has been put back to September. Another good read.
Also waiting for the next Galaxy unknown book by Thomas DePrima. For some reason he released a fictional book, which does not seem to have been taken up like his sci-fiction books.

I seem to be waiting on a few authors to produce their books, so always looks around for recommended Sci-fi authors. Especially new(ish) ones.

Found another good sci-fi source. That's the 'Empire's corps' by Christopher Nuttall.
I'm only on book two, but I have found them hard to put down. ;)

I think so, too!

(And thank you for that comment, I much appreciate it!)

Also: ageing means being prone to (incurable) diseases more than one used to be, so the thought of assisted suicide is one every person - but the old ones in particular, might want to consider. I mean, we have Sir Terry Pratchett as a flagship on thoughts about that.

We also have around 2 billion women supporting abortions.

We deem it a grace and call it "putting out of misery" around pets.

Why can we not claim this right for ourselves?

A really, really good book.

The Name of the Rose - Umberto Eco

A movie starring Sean Connery is also made. I think, the book is more interesting.

Warship (Black Fleet Trilogy, Book 1) by Joshua Dalzelle.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I purchased as it sounded interesting, and I no more books to read. However, I was surprised as how good the book was. Would recommend to the Sci-fi readers.
