      I'm desperate to find some great sci-fi or fantasy books. I think I've gone through most of them.
      Janny Wurts The Empire Series trilogy was good, had an overlap with Raymond E Feist's Riftwar Saga (he co-authored The Empire books). I still think Feist's book, Magician, is a brilliant story.

        Thank you, have bought the Empire Series trilogy for the Kindle and the Magician. I owe you a pint.

            From The Other Side of Lockdown, it's finally read.

            Stone me, that was hard work in parts, many parts.

            Pretty good way of sending yourself to sleep on a postprandial sunny afternoon.

            Next: "Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA" by Tim Weiner.

            Stone me, the CIA Septics are even crazier than one might have imagined.

            In fact, some were actually crazy crazy as in locked up in mental "Sanatoriums" & brain zapped.

                Tales of the Alhambra by Washington Irving which I've been meaning to read for ages but never got around to.
