So, I know this probably shouldn't be my first thread, since I haven't introduced myself yet or anything. But I really need some new reads, and I
thought "Who better to ask, than ATS?".
My current tastes are film noir-ish PI books and older "make-you-think" mystery books (less so the modern crime books, unless they are quite good),
and good sci-fi.
I just finished "the Door into Summer" by Heinlein, and I thought it was really good, and I'd love to read a more modern version of the same type
Other stuff I've loved:
I've also read all of Chandler's stuff and also most of Hammett. I've also read all the Sherlock Holmes stories and all Agatha Christies books.
I've read a bit of the classic sci-fi already too, and the some newer stuff too (like all of Orson S. Card)
I guess I'm really looking for some kind of escapist fun mystery or a great space adventure that has awesome characters and cool science. Actually,
I'd take any science fiction that is good, right now, as that is what I seem to be looking for the most lately, when I am hunting for books.
Anyway, hopefully a few people will have suggestions. I'm going to see if I can find some cheap copies of books online over the next couple of days,
and I would love to include some suggestions from ATS members!
