    2001 — the book is quite different from the film.

    Moid, you are an absolute HERO! Thank you MILLIONS for doing this! 🖤❤️

    I think by now Neil Gaiman has written an introduction for every book in existence.

    Natira, one of the book contributors…now that's a good sci-fi name….if you know your Star Trek and your Farscape.

    Hello Moid, Infernal Devices is quite fun if I remember well. And Farewell Horizontal is quite good, also.

    "A Spell For Chameleon" by Piers Anthony is a must-read

    Tuf Voyaging is a great read. I wish George R.R. Martin would revisit the world of Tuf.

    Moid, please get more lights and turn the musical elements down a little, you're hard to see and very loud in short bursts

    I recall enjoying at least one of the KW Jeter Blade Runner books.

    I've read one or maybe two of the Cobra novels, they're pretty decent SF actioners – apparently there are nine in total! Aside from it and the Star Wars books Zahn is probably best known for the Conquerer's trilogy. A friend of mine back in the day loved the first one and didn't like the second, don't know if he ever read the last one.

    Moid, do you have any William c. Dietz books? If not I really want to send you Steelheart.

  18. Levent Taskan

    These are great videos to find new books for the TBR list. Thanks Moid.
    My haul for the month includes Dark Matter and Recursion by Blake Crouch, The Doors of Eden by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Agency by William Gibson, a nice fabric hard cover edition of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, 1984, The Kraken Wakes by John Wyndham, Olympos by Dan Simmons, Mortal Engines by Stanislaw Lem, The Word for World is Forest by LeGuin, The City and the Stars by Arthur C Clarke, and Indon't know anything about these two but I got The God of Small Things and Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundathi Roy.

    I just looked up Jeter and The Glass Hammer is the sequel to Dr Adder so you should read that first.

    At the time of writing, Chris Foss is very much alive.

  21. David Reese

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Farewell Horizontal is my favorite Jeter.

  22. Charlie Lapworth

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Sounds like we need to do a Dr Adder readalong

  23. Richard Barclay

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Ooh I want that lovecraft book!

    (hmpf, my first attemp was eaten by the algorithm ore by something else …)

    Hi Moid,
    Tom Hillenbrand has published mystery novels und a few sci-fi-books, but not all are available in English. "Drone State" is not without it problems, but I liked the concepts and it was an entertaining read. I think, "Hologrammatica" is better, though, but as mentioned …
    Lol, no. "Mirror in the Mirror" is not a self-help-book 🙂 It's not SciFi either- I did'nt really expect you to mention it here, so THANKS! They are surreal short stories and I take every chance to promote them. Maybe at some point you (or your wife) are courios enough to take a look. 🙂 "The Neverending Story" by Ende is in another league than any of the three movies in my opinion.
    "The new annotated Lovecraft" looks fantastic. I'm tempted to get a copy and I'm not even an Fan of him.

    That Conquest of the Amazon cover is a thing of beauty!

    I read the 2001 series and liked them . 2001 is definitely the best

    You might find '2001' has more of a Kubrick 'detached' feel than Clarke's normal writing. It's worth reading, but it would have been better if Kubrick had just allowed Clarke to write his version of the story and not have to attempt to emulate the tone of the film. Clarke's deadline (and frequent re-writes) meant he fell behind the final version of the film's script anyway.

    I saw the title and came in here to say "like your mum". I should have known I'd be duplicating effort.

  30. Richard Jones

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    I really like Chris Foss artwork but can we get some love for the lesser known Peter Elson? His spaceships were always cool looking with loads of guns and sensors and other shit sticking out of them.

  31. Shelf Centered

    You gotta read Sandkings by George RR Martin. Great short story/novelette, highly recommended especially if you like some horror too.

    Hey!! Cheers from America! I see Contact by Sagan behind you there quite obvious. Love that book. It's one of the very first books I ever read as a kid. I think it's one of the most important Sci Fi books of all time. Maybe not the best but most important. Such a clever perspective on first contact. Would love to see a review on that! If you’d ever have the time. Love the channel by the way … don’t ever stop!!

    Ok, now I'm starting to suspect Moid might actually know my mum. The description at the start checks out.

    Only Forward is great.

    Conquest of the Amazons cover should be your wall poster. It's bonkers/wonderful

    Those were some EPIC covers! 🤟🏼

  37. Sarah Davis

    Looks like Jeter is still alive and only 70.

    I need to find conquest for the Amazon now 😂

    Swell video. Good fun.
    Can't believe you haven't spent 20 years tripping over Piers Anthony books.
    More importantly, it's nice that Chummers sent you the extra Lovecraft, but he *really* should've saved the postage and just sent it to me here in the States. He's some guy though. . Always looking out for your video content!

    Those Piers Anthony are good reads. And very hard to come by individually. I only found the omnibus edition. The Battle circle. But my fave Piers Anthony is the Cluster series. BTW, those Asimov's, Caves Of Steel and The Naked Sun are bks 1&2 of detective Elijah Bailey. Book 3 Robots of Dawn my fav.

  41. Blob Loblaw

    Man, lots of awesome covers in this one, but Conquest of the Amazon wins

  42. portland 182

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Try 'Farewell Horizontal' it's a good introduction to how K W Jeter thinks. The books were a job lot on ebay. Thanks for all the top notch content. Conquest of the Amazon's cover is an early work by Chris Achellios and is quite collectable (not that you're worried about it). There's another K W Jeter on the way! Cheers, Anonymous!

    Infernal Devices is pretty good. K.W. Jeter coined the term steampunk.

  44. Danny Bosten

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    KW Jeter! Yes, 'Farewell Horizontal' is my favorite. Now please find some Jack Womack!

  45. Danny Bosten

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    I have read all of KW Jeter, yes. Except the third Blade Runner. I found him because he was part of a group of friends that included Tim Powers and maybe others who were PKD's circle of friends in the last part of his life…

    Best intro yet

  47. Andy & Alex

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    i think the one dislike is from a guy who got offended by the "Your Mum Joke"

  48. Dave Clark

    July 29, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    I've had that Piers Anthony trilogy sitting on my shelf for years. However, I have the complete trilogy in one book titled "Battle Circle". The same incredible cover art though! I'll wait for the read along now.

    Hey Moid! Sorry don't want to be one of those Asses. But having said that, that means I will be. If you don't read the book and most of them you haven't, but also won't be (I understand the life vs time available but…). You might as well be showing us Hummel figurines (out side the Chris Foss artwork). Just being a jerk, sorry. Oh and … Chummers! (As Col. Klink yelling at Hogan).
