Non-Pony stories (not fanfiction)

Post  Dsarker on Thu Dec 01, 2011 6:43 am

Why not? A place where you can post up lists of stories you like. If there's an online version (legal, of course) feel free to post a link up to that, too.


So. To kick off, The Quest Of Iranon(Link)

It's quite a good read. I'd recommend it to all of you.

Kind of got a bit disjointed and morbid after the second, though.
Ah well. There's this new series coming out called Harry Potter that looks promising, by the way. Anyone seen any copies of the first book around? I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet.

I'm waiting for the next fantasy series to come out. It is called 'The Lord of the Rings'.

My mother's an editor, so I sometimes hear about good stuff before it shows up in stores. Keep an eye open for the Inheritance series; the first book is called Eragon and it's going to be a huge hit.

Agreed. I just picked up the 5th and 6th, and I'm very glad I decided to give the series a chance. It takes a lot of effort to sift through the crap that clogs the too-small SF/Fantasy shelves these days, but gems like this make it worth it.

On another note, Baen Books has an online free library of works by a number of authors (from what I can tell, mostly that certain circle of military pulp science fiction authors like Weber, Flint, and Ringo, as well as a number of others. I'll just drop a link here to the main index. Notably, it also includes Turtledove, if anyone else is interested in his massive fixation on alternate history. The library isn't extensive, but it does include a few score titles.

There's this fellow, Terry Pratchett, dunno if you've ever heard of him [/lies], but unfortunately my local library doesn't carry all of his books. Hell, I'm lucky they had the ones they did. Anyone know if his books are archived online?

If they are, I haven't found them. But I am slowly buying up every single Discworld book as the funds become available.

Terry Pratchett is amazing, I absolutely love the Discworld series. He is also amazingly dedicated. I mean, he's got Alzheimer's disease and he's still writing as if nothing has changed.

Also, I'm a huge fan of crime novels by Agatha Christie. I especially like the Hercule Poirot ones. There are, as far as I know, two stories by Agatha Christie that are public domain in the USA, being The Mysterious Affair At Styles which is the first Hercule Poirot novel and The Secret Adversary which is the first Tommy and Tuppence one.
Just finished reading the first one and it's awesome!

For me, the most awesome part about Pterry was his response to being knighted: He got an iron asteroid and had a blacksmith make a 'starmetal' sword for him.
