Reading lists and Research

A list I posted on tumblr a while back, and it's still the same. Im terrible at reading, I seem to be reading at least 5 books at a time which means finishing a book will take me months but it's just how I am.

A Fall of Moondust: by Arthur C. Clarke (1961)

The Songs of Distant Earth: by Arthur C. Clarke (1986)

The City and the Stars: by Arthur C. Clarke (1956)

Childhood’s End: by Arthur C. Clarke (1953)

Tau Zero: by Poul Anderson (1970)

Dune: by Frank Herbert (1965)

Inverted World: by Christopher Priest (1974)

Nineteen Eighty-Four: by George Orwell (1949)

The Space Merchants: by Frederik Pohl (1953)

Starship Troopers: by Robert A. Heinlein (1959)

The Ringworld Engineers: by Larry Niven (1980)

The Road: by Cormac McCarthy (2006)

The Culture Series: by Iain M. Banks (already begun 1. Consider Phlebas (1987))

  • Player of Games (1988)
  • The Use of Weapons (1990)
  • The State of the Art (1991)
  • Exsession (1996)
  • Inversions (1998)
  • Look to Windward (2000)
  • Matter (2008)

The Fate of the Jedi series (begun 1. Outcast: by Aaron Allston (2009) - awaiting the next 4 in paperback publishings, and then 4 more in the development)

  • Omen: by Christie Golden (2009)
  • Abyss: by Troy Denning (2009)
  • Backlash: by Aaron Allston (2010)
  • Allies: by Christie Golden (2010)

I'm also looking into Philip K. Dick novels, not necessarily for inspiration, simply because I've been seeing lots of his books at work (Waterstone's) and he seems to have quite a collection.

If anyone reading has any suggestions of books they think would be suitable for my project(s), or books you think I'd just enjoy, them please let me know :)
