Hi there,

 

This is my first official post. About 12 years ago I was given a novel that is part of the "Dark Matter" series, a film (haven't seen) was made post the novel called "Northern Lights, by Philip Pullman" I was devastated as it was a brake up gift from my first long term relationship. Needless to say I read it cover to cover, its a beautiful, very intelligent book, and any one who saw the film "Interstellar" in my humble opinion would enjoy.  

 

Thanks,

 

S

Might try that, you want to give “Mindstar Rising” a shot - Peter F Hamilton, must have read it a couple of dozen times

Might give that a try.

 

I've just finished reading Electric Dreams, a compilation of short stories by Phil K Dick (of Bladerunner fame).  These are the original stories used by Channel 4 for the Electric Dreams series.  Each story is introduced by the director/producer of each episode. 

 

For Sci-Fi written in the 1950s it still has a lot of relevance today.

I'd go with the Stainless steel rat series of books.

Richard K. Morgan could well be your man. The A Land Fit For Heroes trilogy is excellent sword-wielding fantasy (including some interesting sci-fi tropes), and the Takeshi Kovacs novels are hard sci-fi. Netflix recently broadcast what I thought was a pretty good adaptation of the first novel, Altered Carbon.

I also recommend Joe Abercrombie's work - his characters are a lot more human than most, they laugh and cry, celebrate and mourn, feel fear, love and miss their departed friends. And they're cracking good yarns, too.
