Sci Fi

Books about science and fiction rock, by far my favorite genre. Here are a few good reads.


Sometime its nice to get away, really far away, like an imaginary place where things are more complex but so much simpler at the same time.


These are surprisingly hard to come by books about normal life. I guess some many people have normal lives that it doesn't seem like a good escape, but it can be.


Nothing makes things simpler like a bad guy and a good guy in pursuit, or sometimes the other way around. These are just my favorite reads about criminal activity.


Leviathan Wakes

James S.A. Corey

The first book in the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. It bills itself as a space drama and I delivers on a massive scale.


Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

Ready Player One

Ernest Cline

If you want to relive the 80s read this book. It even has virtual reality.


Neal Stephenson

Very few people can convey the human essence of WWII through a handful of fictional characters like Neal Stephenson.

The Calligrapher

Edward Docx

This is a fantastic book about a single guy who falls hard for a girl. This book is a nice real life story thats a good read for both sexes.

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Rain Fall

Barry Eisler

An assassin in Tokyo who is only half Japanese deals with culture divides and life under the constant shadow of death.

Hard Rain

Barry Eisler

The John Rain saga continues, with a bit more background on the assassins history and ties back to the US.

Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

When I read this it was the third and final book in the John Rain series, so there is a bit of a conclusion here.

Planet Of Adventure

Jack Vance

One of the best Sci-Fi adventure books you will ever read. Thoroughly immersive and enjoyable. Why isn't this book a movie yet?

Wolverine Origin

Paul Jenkins

Given Wolverine's mysterious past, I had really high expectations for his origins story. This awesomely illustrated series exceeded my expectations.


Stephen King

Stephen King's book about time travel and the assassination of JFK by Lee Oswald is very good writing applied to a very poor and tired plot. Also was he paid by the CIA to write this as fictional propaganda?

The Illuminatus Trilogy

Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson

This book is difficult to describe since it has a dozen stories happening at the same time, all somehow connected. Basically take some classic conspiracy theories, mix in some philosophy, deep introspection on feminism, freedom, economics, reality, plus myth and you get this book.
