I have downloaded the Broken Empire series for my kindle, but have a few books to read prior to them. So I can't give you a recommendation on those yet,

Pebble In The Sky
by Isaac Asimov
Considered part of the Galactic Empire series which I have not read more
I'll list a few of my favorite authors.
Hunter S Thompson
Well, ya learn something new every day.
While I like the word, I agree it is probably not the best choice, but I don't think it will hurt
