You did ask about more of Neil’s books, those are all his novels including graphic ones. Pretty straight forward list, just quite a lot of it!Posted 5 years ago
Just trying to think of other, similar writers, I would absolutely recommend Neil Stephenson, his early book ‘Zodiac’ is excellent reading, a sort of environmental thriller, and ‘Snowcrash’, ‘Diamond Age’ and ‘REAMDE’ are almost indispensable. ‘Snowcrash’ is being made into a film, too, apparently.
Charles Stross is a terrific writer, who writes loads of excellent books in a bunch of different styles, ‘Halting State’ and ‘Rule 34’ are particularly good, then there’s his ‘Laundry’ series, James Bond meets ‘Call Of Cthulhu’ , his ‘Merchant Princes’ series, and various other books.
Mikey, no, not really. There are some similarities, but ‘A Madness…’ is much darker, and I think it’s a better book. And I love Neil’s work. Kate/Cat lives and works in London and knows it intimately, and she started writing very early, her first book is very much like a Zelazney novel, but it was published when she was fourteen!Posted 5 years ago
My understanding is that Gaiman wrote Neverwhere after the TV series and I think it shows.
You are half correct: I believe he wrote the story, which was then turned into the BBC series: However, he was never happy with the way the BBC treated it and decided to turn it into a proper book that was in keeping with his original intentions.
Perhaps I’ll check out “A Madness…” then. Cheers.Posted 5 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
I’ve never read Gaiman, but I know he himself is a huge fan of Gene Wolfe, one of his literary heroes (short piece here) Wolfe is one of the grand old men of SF, in the twilight of his writing now really, but his body of work is spectacular and unique amongst modern SF writers. I don’t know if there’s much overlap with their styles, but Wolfe is certainly worth reading.Posted 5 years ago
Mikey, hope you enjoy ‘Madness…’, there are three other books published, with two more to follow. Kate’s finished them, but they still have to go through the editing/printing stages.Posted 5 years ago
She has a really good blog, too; http://www.kategriffin.net/
It’s not just about books, she writes about all sorts of stuff, especially her main day job, which is often very enlightening!
