Assorted Fiction

  • Brandon Sanderson. From reading The Stormlight Archives.
  • Patrick Rothfuss. From reading The Kingkiller Chronicles.
  • John Hudspith. From reading Kimi’s Secret.
  • Iain M Banks. From reading the Culture series [not including Consider Phlebas, sorry! But the rest I enjoyed].
  • Jean M. Auel. From reading Earth’s Children series, many moons ago.
  • Ayn Rand. From reading Atlas Shrugged. Not that I agree with its principles on capitalism; they don’t work in the real world. Good read though.
