Geesh I havn't read any fiction in ages. Feels like I've been reading nothing but textbooks for the past ten years. LOL

*concentrates* But, if I think really hard, I believe I can recall the last few novels I did read...

The Chrysalids by John Wyndham, Red Dwarf: Last Human by Doug Naylor, and the 2nd book of the Star Wars Thrawn trilogy by Timothy Zahn.

And of course, everyone of my generation always has something by Stephen King on the go. Most recently for me it was The Eyes of the Dragon, Dark Tower II, and The Talisman. The stories... not too shabby.

Cool

Timothy Zahn's Dark Force Rising? Awesome.

Last book I read was from Anne Macaffrey's Dragon-riders of Pern series. It was a prelude called Dragon's Dawn.

Worth a read... if you can stand skipping over years at a time within the story itself.

The only book I have read of McCaffrey is Pegasus in Space. But I read that like ten years ago when it first came out and now I can't remember anything about her writing. But from what I recall, it was a pretty damn good book.

I one point I did read the whole Acorna series by Anne Mccaffrey including Acorna's Children. I think it was Twelve books in all.

That's just one series... I read a few others... one was called The Ship Who Sang, about a ship that basically had a human being for a guidance computer. She WAS the ship. The book spawned a few others with the same concept.
There is also the series that revolves around a planet called Petybee which is literally alive... But It's another series I havn't taken the time to read yet. All these are but a fraction of her works.

Anne McCaffrey certainly wrote a lot of books in her time. How old is she now? 80-something? Her son Todd is now carrying on her legacy but I havn't started on his books yet.

Yeah, she is really old, I have seen pictures. If she is not 80 yet she must be darn close. And yes, I'm too lazy to even simply wiki to find out.

But to think such incredible stories came out of what now must be one crazy old lady. I bet she is like a lovable jedi grandma. LOL

She's a Millionare. I bet she's lovably eccentric. She even lives in her very own custom built Hobbit-hole house... it was in her bio I think. I'm jealous. bounce

At the moment, I'm so into Manga that I've completely forgotten about my usual fiction reads. >.<
