Library

I read a lot of books, and I even try and write some too. This page contains links to books I've read and enjoyed, so I can find them again in the future (and others can read them too, if they're interested). It also houses copies of some of the short stories I've written, as well as links to download them as epub files that you can read on an e-reader such as a Kindle or Kobo.

Dates given for other people's work are the date I finished reading them; for my own work the date given is approximately when it was 'completed' - the date I first tried to submit it to a publisher.

The Colour of Magic

Author
  • Terry Pratchett

A lovely blend of social satire and pure madness, set in a fantasy world populated by beautifully observed, and very human, characters.

The Ship Who Sang

Author
  • Anne McCaffrey

A dark reflection on the Dan Dares and Buck Rogers of the world, but one a little ruined by poor writing and repetitive characters.

The Book of English Magic

Author
  • Richard Heygate
  • Philip Carr-Gomm

An interesting, if broad-brush, introduction to Britain's many and varied magical traditions and their histories.

The Gate to Women's Country

Author
  • Sheri S. Tepper

A potentially powerful piece of social commentary let down by weak characterisation, sexism, and an alarming trend towards fascism that may not be entirely restricted to the characters.

Gotrek and Felix: The First Omnibus

  • Various

Fairly middle of the road pulp Sword and Sorcery with interesting protagonists. Interesting for fans of Warhammer and its setting, but probably not worth it otherwise.

The Inverted World

Posted
Author
  • Christopher Priest

Mind bending, but highly readable sci-fi of the highest calibre.

Neverwhere

Posted
Author
  • Neil Gaiman

An interesting take on urban fantasy that tries a little too hard to be funny.

The Burning Shore

Author
  • Robert Earl

Might be worth reading if you like the Lizardmen in Warhammer. Otherwise, it's probably safe to skip.

The Space Between Worlds

  • Micaiah Johnson

A very interesting take on the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

Old Bones

The dead slowly lose touch with the children they have left behind them.
