My holiday reads:
The Mote in God’s Eye – a classic first contact story from Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
The Moon Over Soho and Whispers Underground from Ben Aaronovitch. I love these detective stories of magic and wierd goings on in London, told with great humour.
The Long Earth – Terry Pratchet and Stephen Baxter. Great concept, but not sure about it. If you’ve read it let me know what you think.
1356 – The latest of Bernhard Cornwell’s series of stories about archer Thomad Hookton. Always a treat to read a new Bernhard Cornwell.
