Robert Jackson Bennett is also a great follow on Twitter, especially his interactions with Myke Cole (who plays straight man to RJB and Sam Sykes.)
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"
―Gene Wolfe, The Citadel of the Autarch

I second the R. Scott Bakker rec! :thumbsup:

Brian Ruckley's The Godless World trilogy is right up your alley as well.

The Gor series by John Norman.

Thanks for the laughs about romance novels. I had a splendid chuckle. Took my mind off the dirtbag on the train yesterday who was dropping the worst egg farts known to humankind.

Anyhoo I decided to read Bloody Rose by Nicholas Eames

But to answer your other question about Romance novels I could probably recommend stuff by: Kimmie Kaboom, Sofia Rose, Alura Jenson, Moriah Mills and Julia Sands.

Robert Jackson Bennett's Divine Cities.


Hey, I just started City of Stairs today. Any words about the series as a whole (no spoiler ofc)? Is it worth the read?


Awesome. Final book is the best imo.

This, especially if you can get your hands on the omnibus 'first chronicles of the black company'.

I own them all individually on my Kindle.

Read them in one hit? Or savour them like rare fruit plucked from the vine?

Initially you can do them as one-offs but you might decide different as you progress. The series is definitely a serial, but the first few books are more independently arced...the further south the BC goes, though, the more the books become one long story.

As clarification, worry means "South" as the direction the Black Company travels in later books, not "south" in terms of quality.
