It is a lot of short stories. Phillip Nicholson July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Gnomon is great! Hark away is the son of the late great John Le Carre. Harkaway’s The Gone Away World is also brilliant. Macilmoyle July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Tuf Voyaging was originally a connected series of short stories published in Analog in the 70s and 80s. It's not particularly deep or meaningful but I always enjoyed the stories when they came out. Reminds me a lot of Poul Anderson's Polesotechnic League stories. ChrisJClegg July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Fully justified and worthwhile charity shop rant.Some of my recent hauls have been from Stockbridge in Edinburgh, which was flooded a week ago. So I’m keen to get back and try to help them out again. Two of them in particular have/had spectacular sci-fi sections. jen m July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm I read Martin's Tuf Voyaging many years ago. At the time I thought it was pretty good. I might not like it as much after having read many of the books on your two 100 best books lists. His short story Sandkings is a much better work of science fiction. I am not sure how either compares to his Song of Ice and Fire series. I only read the first two books and then stopped because he writes too slowly. I am not going to read any more until he is done. Moid, thanks for all the work you do. I especially like your 100 best books list and the various top 10 lists. Most importantly, thanks for not including fantasy on your lists! welitonE3 July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Moid, it's me again, for the third time, if you are reading this, I just wanted you to know that you don't need to re-read The Three Body Problem to continue the 2º book, why:*The main characther of the first book, don't appear again.*You just need to know the main plot of the first book: The aliens exist and they are coming Earth.*the second book is complicated and a bit boring in the first 50%, and then BOOOOMMM it grows up so much you will not believe! David Veskadiaga July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Learning the World is a fun first contact book where humans are the aliens coming to another planet. I first read Tuf Voyaging as separate stories of each voyage in an SF magazine, then a couple of years ago I bought the same edition you received, basically he helps planets solve problems with his seed ship and they get more than they asked for. goawayinternet July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Gnomon is great! It's long but a good read IMO. Its a kind of world-spanning puzzle-ish post-modern kind of read. Also fun fact, Nick Harkaway is the son of John Le Carre. Rowan Simpson July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Found your channel recently man , you’ve been my guide to the world of sci fi books 📚 I’ve been buying loads of books to get back into it and your vids are ace 🤙🏻 Stuart Gale July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm “Dangling with the stuff”… just like your mum. Ray Baker July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Love a good Moid rant Lars A G July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm The charity shop barterers are flogging their purchases on the internet, I'm guessing. Suzanne Stauffer July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Hard boiled wonderland was awesome. Totally turned me on to Murakami. I think you'll really like it. Carlos Vásquez July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm YES, I read Kethani…the first 20 pages then I drop it…but still have it….somewhere. Randy Niss July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Who does that lead in song and what is it’s name…..it rocks!!!!!! Moonpome July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm How have you not read Nick Harkaway!? He’s one of my favorites! GNOMON is a MASTERPIECE ! Seriously, it is great. He’s so talented. The Gone Away World is my sentimental favorite but Gnomon is literary greatness. So happy for you that you’ve got Harkaway to discover. 🦈 I think about Gnomon often and it’s been two years since I read it. Kakashi Hatake July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Nice intro music! I love how well sound effects are used in this Cult! gotnuggets999 July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Kafka On The Shore is fantastic, its probably my favourite Murakami. I didnt enjoy Killing Commendatore though in my opinon its one of his weaker works. Hard Boiled Wonderland is great as well. Patch & Noodle July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm I'm in for the Three-Body Problem readalong! KujoTV July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm IF "Tuf Journey" is the book I think it might be, it is the book Martian should be remembered for (screw GOT). A man on the spectrum has gained control of on of the most powerful ships in the galaxy (can "Terra form" planets almost at will). Every needy civilization wants his help, every corrupt government / organization wants the power (Dinosaurs in space back in the 80's). DAGDRUM5 July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm 16:18 intrigued me enough to research The Atrocity Archives and before 19:18 a cash register somewhere in cyberspace went chingching. Good call, Levin; thanks for publicizing it, Moid. Brian W July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm I like that delta blues at the end. Just the right amount of distortion. Colin McAlister July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Ken Macleod was one of Iain Banks’ best friends since they were at school together. Not read anything by him myself – but I am going to. Orgone Accumulator. Samurai Jim July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Cixin Liu's Dark Forest is definitely on my top 10. Three Body Problem was average, but you should read Dark Forest. Dave Kincla July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Gnomon is a head fuck. Seriously. Petri Manninen July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm So I visited my local book store a few days back. I suddenly noticed that I nowadays have a habit of picking a hardback from the shelf, and after looking it for a while, I knock it with my knuckles. Or what the hell they are, the middle joints of tubby fingers. Anyways, I wondered where I've picked up that habit… And now I saw you doing the same. Damn. I must be subconsciously imitating you. Well anyways, read the rest of books in 3 body problem, I think it's worth the effort. Terri Simon July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Sci-Fi, Lovecraftian with humor is a good way to describe The Atrocity Archives. Also, for George R.R. Martin sci-fi, try Nightflyers (reminds me of Alien) and the short story Sandkings. I loved Armageddon Rag but don't know if that's your style. diptanjan sarma purkayastha July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Have you read any sci-fi by Dean Koontz? Robert Hextall July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm When I fly back to the UK to visit my family in the Black Country I make sure I trawl all the charity shops in every town and village we visit. I always find a few gems, sci-fi and more. So I join you in your rant: BUY BOOKS IN CHARITY SHOPS!! AND PAY THEM EXTRA, THEY’RE CHARITY SHOPS FFS!! Kakashi Hatake July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm The discussion with Mike from Mike's Book reviews brought out your love and his dislike for Moby Dick. Any chance you'll make a debate video where you and Mike put across your points? Pelman July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm My fave Sf series is probably Donaldson's The Gap Series but I rarely see it mentioned – is it a bit too nasty? Susan Thursdays July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm This man is a hyper-active phenomenon wrapped in an adolescent manic shirt, I love it!(the shirt.) This is perfectly sci-fi, the entire concept of being surrounded by books full of words, thoughts, ideas and worlds! Is a fantastic universe! (The one on the shelves.) Guess the jury’s out on the high-energy H.sapien but i think he survives. Mr. Rogers lasted for years(!) in a room with kinder-sized furniture; and his cardigan wasn’t nearly as stimulating at this (shirt!), …. let alone as (stimulating as) all these brilliant books!! If I was a betting girl, I’d bank on the Media Death Cult, living to see many more aeons!! …. Put a ‘fiver’ on it?! – Perhaps we should send him some grub & a case of his beverage of choice. 😛 🚀 🍕 🍺 – When ya gab this much, you’re bound to get thirsty! Evan Hovey July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm This isn't Mike's Book Reviews… Fucking hell lol Shelf Centered July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Harkaway is excellent. I haven't read Gnomon, but Gone Away World and Angelmaker and some of my favorite books. Definitely Recommended. GAW has mimes and ninjas and the end of the world! How does that not sell itself? Shelf Centered July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm GRRM's Sandkings is horror scifi and one of my all-time faves. Plus it's a short story so you don't have to invest too much time MadderHat July 19, 2021 at 1:46 pm Feeling low Moid. You should be off to bed with a hot toddy. Steady……….
