Books – Fiction – Recent Modern

A list of contemporary books that I’m particularly fond of.

These are in no particular order.

His Dark Materials (trilogy)

Northern Lights
The Subtle Knife
The Amber Spyglass

by Philip Pullman
Although this is intended as teen fiction, I don’t feel at all embarrassed to consider this also as an adult read. Very entertaining

Nights Dawn (trilogy)

The Reality Dysfunction
The Neutronium Alchemist
The Naked God

by Peter F. Hamilton

Neverwhere
by Neil Gaiman

Stardust
by Neil Gaiman

American Gods
by Neil Gaiman

Anansi Boys
by Neil Gaiman

Good Omens
by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

The Dead Zone
by Stephen King
I’m not a fan of King’s later work, but some of these earlier works are excellent

Firestarter
by Stephen King

Curse of the Voodoo Handbag
by Robert Rankin

HHGG (trilogy—in 5 parts)
by Douglas Adams

Red Dwarf

Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers
by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor

Better Than Life
by Rob Grant and Doug Naylor

Backwards
by Rob Grant

Last Human
by Doug Naylor

The Red Dwarf books are more serious and ‘darker’ as compared to the TV series

Day of the Jackal
by Frederick Forsythe
