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.

Found these at a local used bookstore today. Does anyone know if the third book, The Iron Jackel will be published in the U.S.?

Thanks for finding that. Are they now marketing the series as YA? I haven't read the books yet so maybe they do have a YA vibe but it's kinda weird doing it in the middle of a series.

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

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.
