At the book store I've seen the Bengal Station series written by Eric Brown but I've never been motivated to actually buying them. At the used book store I picked up the Eric Brown novel The Fall of Tartarus, which sounded interesting and it had no reviews on Amazon... so I picked it up and I'm very, very impressed!

Has anyone read The Fall of Tartarus or any other Eric Brown novel? I'm thinking of picking up the Bengal series...

Since posting this thread over a year ago and having been very, very impressed with The Fall of Tartarus (Mr. Rogers can concur), I have since read the humanistic/artsy Engineman novel (which wasn't very well received on Amazon, but I liked it a lot) and the apocalyptic novel of Guardians of the Phoenix novel, which I haven't written a review for yet, but it's another great humanistic read with some gritty cannibalistic barbarianism thrown in.

If you haven't discovered Eric Brown yet... THERE are three recommendations for you.

Mike 2theD,

It looks like Tartarus is pretty expensive ($30 for a new paperback), but I found this e-book anthology that has an Eric Brown story, and currently it is FREE-->

Back in June, Eric Brown published the start of a new series: Weird Space: The Devil's Nebula. It was an OK book, not nearly as good as the novels listed above. I also read Brown's Helix (2007) which had more of a solid science fiction base than his other humanistic novels, much to my dismay.

This month, Eric Brown is publishing a sequel to Helix: Helix Wars. I got my copy last Friday and just started to read it today... it's a slow 67-page start, but there are 471 more pages to go!

Thanks for the heads-up as always Mike. I've downloaded samples of Engineman and Helix, both start out well.
