/ Book reccomendations
I have read the Brent Weeks trilogy and really enjoyed this very dark series. A few other authors to save you some time, include David Gemmell, Harry Harrison, Iain Banks, Richard Morgan, Robert Jordan, George Martin, Brandon Sanderson to name a few.
Anything dark and gritty...
Perdido Street Station by China Mieville is amazing. Very dark and superbly written.
Ursula le Guin, The Dispossessed and the Left Hand of Darkness. Both superb, but I'd rate the former a bit ahead of the latter.
Margaret Atwood, the Handmaid's Tale.
Anne Mccaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series.
and her Crystal singer trilogy
Julian may's Saga of the exiles and Galactic milieu
Stephen Donaldson's gap series is Very dark.
World War Z is good
Short stories, but extremely good.
> Perdido Street Station by China Mieville is amazing. Very dark and superbly written.
His other Bas Lag stories are great too - plots are linked but all the books are stand alone - The Scar (my favorite of the three) and Iron Council.
Joe Abercrombie is pretty good, been mentioned on here quite a bit recently, I prefer his The Third Law trilogy, but his other books are worth a read too.
I remember enjoying The Sword of Albion by Mark Chadbourn, but cannot remember anything more about it than that!
Thanks to you all, that little lot has been ordered and the Kindle is BUSY.
