Second votes for Michael R. Hicks "In Her Name" series, and David Weber in general, but specifically "In Fury Born" book/books and "Prince Roger's" four-book series.

Very, very good SF that is still in progress: the Culture series by Iain M. Banks. Seriously, SF doesn't get better than this. The books, in order, are:

Consider Phlebas
The Player of Games
Use of Weapons
The State of the Art
Excession
Inversions
Look to Windward
Matter
Surface Detail

Try The Faces of Immortality and To Rule the Universe by Everett Coles if you fancy reading detective in space stories with more twists and turns than a dog's hind leg. I found them both very rewarding.

I'd recommend "Kati of Terra Book One: Escape From The Drowned Planet" by a new author Helena Puumala. And excellent read, very well written.

Hey, Robert, I never heard of any of these books so am delighted to check them ut. I am reading Apocalypse Law which is really good and I see there is second one. But the first one is very good, only $2.99, the second Apocalypse Law 2is $3.99 and I will definitely read it too.
OK, I have to add that the way the father talks to his son I found kind of exactly how a military man would do, not too warm, but he obviously loves him.

Ok, I have way too many books on my Kindle. I have The Keepers so I guess this is a confirmation that it is good.

Robert,
I would add Against a Dark Background, Feersum Endjinn, The Algebraist (one of my favorites) and Transitions to your list. You're right - scifi doesn't get better than this.

If anyone's into post-apocalyptic SF, a new one is 'The Mutant Star Tragedy'. A little rough at times, but overall, a good read.

Hi Mark,
Keepers was good. You should try Galaxy Battle League. It starts slower than K, but swamps it once it gets going.. I too paid full price for GBL, but it was worth it. I heard there's an ebook version coming shortly, but I still would have gone back and bought a copy anyway, so I'm happy.

Good luck with your hunting..
tarn :P

I have to suggest it. If you like big fleet battles and the military dynamic. The Lost Fleet series is superb

The Windup Girl

May as well keep this thread going: I love all of the authors in your list, and I just found this novel in a used-book store for $3.50 - best purchase I ever made. In fact, it was so good that I felt guilty keeping it, so I traded it in when I was done and bought it on Kindle.

In reply to an earlier post on May 23, 2012 9:30:27 AM PDT
So Smith, it is not on Kindle? I sorta got my Kindle to read books on it and I now have it so full I am really not buying more physical books now or in the foreseeable future.

In reply to an earlier post on May 23, 2012 9:00:37 PM PDT
It is on Kindle - $7.29. Click on link in Smithereen's post.

If you haven't read "The Passage" by Justin Cronin. I would highly recommend it. It is the first of a trilogy the second book is due out later this year. The book is around 1,000 pages so it really brings you into the story...in my opinion.

The second book in The Passage is out now! It is called The Twelve (Book Two of The Passage Trilogy): A Novel . Thanks, I did not know there was a second book and since they are calling it a trilogy, there will be a third book too!
EDIT: the second book is coming out October 16 this year.

Thank you, ATL.

You might want to give a try to Mystic Travelers: Awakening by F. W. Rick Meyers. It's the first in a series and deals with the hero's journey, father/son connection, the human condition and technology that is believable. My friends and I really loved the book because it took us on a journey and brought us back a bit changed.

In reply to an earlier post on May 28, 2012 10:48:13 AM PDT
Mystic Travelers: Awakening I see is written by an Episcopal priest.

In reply to an earlier post on May 28, 2012 10:53:13 AM PDT
You could try Information Clouds, Book 1 of the Tales of Cinnamon City.
Hit preview and see if it's your thing.

Information Cloud (Tales of Cinnamon City Book 1)

For something a bit different - a bit of slip-stream S/F I recommend IQ84 by Haruki Murakami

West: Self promotion is not allowed on these discussions. I myself don't mind them except they are biased and not truly recommendations from readers. I looked at your book and it does not really look like it fits the genre I am looking for.

Another great series is Monster Hunter International by Larry correia. Not going to change your life but there are 3 books in the series with the 4th due out in September.
