    Have you read China Mieville? He’s put out some excellent stuff over the past 10 years. Productive guy, so there are a lot of different books to choose from. Quality can be a bit variable as a result – think he will write a real masterpiece at some point though.
    The Scar is his best IMHO – some superb writing and story telling in that one.

    Go on recommend something.

    Like Sci-Fi of the Ian M Banks type.

    Random other stuff including cycling writing.


    I think I’m going to revisit some Ray Bradbury this summer, something like this


    M John Harrison’s stuff is very good, Banks mentioned him in one of his recent blog posts. Like Banks he produces both hard sci-fi, and fairly brutal contemporary fiction. His short stories are a good place to start. Or get hold of the proper stuff: early Ballard.

    It’s Iain Banks, btw.


    The English Dragon – Tim Bragg….if you like comfort don’t read it.
