Yeah yeah I know, Alistair Reynolds new books only just come out and everything- but what can I say, I am essentialy a greedy person.

Was just going to say that you can pre-order the next IB novel on Amazon already. Dead Air, it revolves around people who witnessed 9/11 or something.

So if that FAQ is right you'll have to wait to *at least* summer 2003 for his next sci-fi novel.

Looks that way yes. Ho hum. I might have to discover another author - my existing stock of unread Banks and Reynolds can only last so long...

It will get to the point where you'll have to go back over old classics.. I had just finished reading Rama Revealed when Redemption Ark came out.

I liked:

e) I suggest you read _Consider Phlebas_ and _The Player of Games_ at the same time! ;-) (Suggested by Loznic.)

:D

Funky:

Try and get hold of the Kim Stanley Robinson Mars trilogy. Also Memory of Whiteness by him is excellent. And Antarctica actually...

I've been reading some Ben Bova stuff recently too. He also has a planetary exploration series of books. First one I read was Mars, then Return to Mars and Venus. All good.

I may try and read a non-sci-fi book next :nervous:

How about Peter F. Hamilton’s Night’s Dawn Trilogy? That should keep you occupied.

Although, of course, this is a sci-fi series :clueless:.

Have you considered reading all the star trek books in order back to back?

As a kid I read about 5 or 6 of the original Star Trek novels, based on the original crew. They were great.

I've also, I'm proud to say, read most of the Star Wars novels.
