Kim Stanley Robinson - Aurora

Just turned the first few pages, but Robinson usually delivers pretty neat stories.

Clive Barker - Imajica

 

Read this over the last week and a half (all 800+ pages, jeez) Not a big fan of fantasy but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Psychedelia, theology, light amounts of science fiction and a bit of horror. If you like Michael Moorcock's Elric books or the later PKD (Valis trilogy in particular) you'll like this too.

Reading a lot of Theosophy books. The foundation of modern spirituality. The Secret Doctrine is amazing, but to get a clear picture, one should first get some idea of the history of the Theosophical movement, etc. So, some Sinnett (Occult World, Esoteric Buddhism) comes into the picture. Some biography of H. P. Blavatsky. And a ton of others (fortunately most of it is in public domain now, and I love reading scanned pdf-copies of old books).

Also, I. Regardie's The Tree of Life (great introduction to magic, I hear), and Glenn H. Mullin's The Practice of Kalachakra (awesome book on buddhism; the author had translated original Tibetan texts under the guidance of the Tibetan Buddhist priests, and quotes freely from them; also, gives a good picture of the history of Buddhism in Tibet and the overall scheme of the Buddhist ideas; great book on Buddhism, imo, even for a near beginner, like I am).

Gavin Smith - The Beauty Of Destruction

Scottish genious on sci-fi, I'd love to meet this person in real life. Gavin Smith must be one of the most skilled sci-fi writers of 2010s, no one matches his utter wit.

One of my favorite books!

I just started Ender in Exile by Orson Scott Card. It takes place between the first two Ender books. Pretty good so far, unlike the prequel books which are mostly written by some other dude from Card's ideas.

You mean the prequel-prequel books detailing the first attack by the Formics? But those are collabs with card and johnston.

You should try some true modern sci-fi then http://www.psynews.o..._DIR#/smile.gif

Peter F. Hamilton for example... great writer, but huge books, but some great space opera

Hi Dros,
Sorry for replying to something that probably predates us actually meeting.
I do actually love some space opera and I read a hell of a lot of shitty sci-fi but this guy is the worst writer ever.
