Here’s my list of favourite science fiction and fantasy novels. authors whose books I always enjoy reading.
These are my favourite novels and fiction writers, although I read a lot of non-fiction too. If you like any of the books on this page, you’ll probably enjoy my books as well. This list changes all the time as I discover new authors and genres to devour.
G R R Martin – Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire. What can I say? I’m a huge fan of the books and the series. I mean it. A really big fan. I have a John Snow t-shirt and jumper.
J F Penn – End of Days. Learned a lot about snake venom in this book. I always travel a lot, and learn cool stuff from the adventures of the agents of supernatural artefacts. Enjoyed all the ARKANE series, although this one is by far the best in my opinion.
Emily St John Mantel – Station 11. This book manages to be an uplifting post-apocalyptic literary mash up. I never wanted this book to end.
Katherine Kurtz – Lammas Night. Really loved the mixture of ritual magic, historical witchcraft and the magical battle of Britain. It was an actual thing, the magical battle of Britain. Magicians fighting on the astral plane. Great book.
Eric Brown – Kethani. Aliens who bring the gift of eternal life. But at what cost?
Hugh Howey – Wool. Amazing series about human living in underground silos. But why? I couldn’t stop reading these, the characters and weird situations were so mesmerising.
Ursula Le Guin – Left Hand of Darkness. Like all her stuff – strange and thought-provoking.
Aldous Huxley – Island. Amazing. Just amazing. IMHO, one of the best speculative novels ever written.
Graham Hancock – Entangled. Interesting time travelling novel.
Sean Platt & Johnny B Truant – Alien Invasion Series. Ah, who doesn’t love a good alien invasion.
Libbie Hawker – The She-King. Ancient Egypt. Gods and incense. History and ancient magic. Lovely.
Dan Brown – The Da Vinci Code. What an experience that was?
