The Gunslinger by Stephen King

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." So begins my favorite King work, a 7 volume journey that will draw the reader across time, parallel worlds, New York, and Mid-World in a wake of blood and bullets. With inspirations from Arthurian legend, Tolkien, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, this series showcases King's masterful storytelling ability.

We by Yevgeny Zamyatin

Have you read an enjoyed A Brave New World or 1984 ? Do you love wacky dystopian societies that are just creepy enough to make you uncomfortable? Zamyatin did them first, and in my opinion, best. What is freedom? What is truth? And does love ensnare us, or free us as individuals? These are just a few of the questions asked here, you’re in for a heck of a ride.

The Postmortal by Drew Magary

Magary's novel is quirky, hilarious (in that gallows humor way), and thoroughly entertaining as he explores the implications of this possible scientific "advancement." Much like The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, The Postmortal uses a not-so-distant dystopic future to make very strong points about life today. I loved it, and it's still haunting me.

Reamde by Neal Stephenson

This is a crazy-fun fast-paced thriller with just a touch of the digital world that Stephenson is so well known for. Some of the story takes place inside a video game world, and some of the spy toys are beyond what you might find elsewhere (but I bet they really exist). It's addictive and exciting, the writing is beautiful, and the payoff is excellent.

Reamde by Neal Stephenson

A thrilling, action-packed adventure, complete with sexy special agents, misfit computer geniuses, and Stephensons’ excellently nerdy wit—this book made me think Ian Fleming crossed with Cory Doctorow. Reminiscent of his bestselling Cryptonomicon, this book is that combination of great storytelling, intelligent explanations, and technological thrills that made me love Stephenson in the first place.

In Other Worlds by Margaret Atwood

Intelligent and insightful, Margaret Atwood is the perfect author to write about the science fiction genre. This collection includes personal reflections, lectures, and essays on specific books. I found the last section to be the most interesting, and very enjoyable even though I had not read the title she was discussing. In Other Worlds is a great read for all fans of Atwood’s or of the genre.
