Subject: RE: BS: What do you read ?
Pterry Pratchett, Stephen Donaldson, William Horwood, Nevil Shute, Stephen King.

Tom Maddox's "Halo" is pretty good - I got the dead tree version, but it's available online on this link.

Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance is available online on this link. Weird, but interesting.

Lots of Asimov but not recently - the concepts are nice but I realised a while back that the execution was rather bad.

Alastair Maclean is mostly trash, but "The Last Frontier" and "The Guns of Navarone" are great. Why he wrote such good stuff and then threw it all away to write rubbish, I'll never know.

Star prize has to be Neal Stephenson (aka Stephen Bury) though - Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon are great.
