    Just bought the first two Gap novels from Stephen R Donaldson. I haven't read anything by him before, but have heard lots of praise.

    US editions are getting marketed as YA, UK as adult fiction. I believe.

    Oh, Cool, I didn't know about this thread.
    Books that I recently bought are:
    Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey (which i am reading now)
    Neormancer by William Gibson
    Conisder Phlebas by Iain M Banks
    Mindstar Rising by Peter F Hamilton
    Revelation Space by Allistar Reynolds

    My only problem is which to read next after Leviathan Wakes, although I am enjoying it so much that I am thinking about reading the sequel before moving on to a new series. what do you guys think?

    Well since you asked, I have opinions. :-D

    The third book, Abaddon's Gate, is coming out next May, so the question is whether to space them out a bit so you don't forget everything by the time you pick up book 3. There are also two novellas available, but if you have a good memory, might as well keep going since May isn't really that far away.

    Good advice. Right now I am thinking space them out a bit. I can get book 2 in march, then get book 3 in june, and I can read a few other books in between. I guess I could also read the 2 novellas in between as well since they are so short. I think that is the plan for now, although that plan can change 10 times before june haha.

    I bought The Apocalypse Ocean by Tobias Buckell for my kindle, only $4.99. This is the fourth in his Xenowealth saga.
