I've started reading books online. I downloaded Arthur Conan Doyle's complete Sherlock Holmes mysteries and they are as I expected. They also indicate how good the Jeremy Brett TV series was at putting them on screen.
You may find the Project Gutenberg
of interest in this regard.
My favourite book is without question, Dune
. Since Frank Herbert's death, the stories have been taken-up by his son Kevin and Sci-Fi author Kevin J Anderson. They have written prequels about the Major Houses in the universe (Atreides, Harkonnen and the Emperor's House Corrino), as well as the major conflict that arose in the past (the Butlerian Jihad) that explains how the empire came to be as well as the feud between the Harkonnens and the Atreides.
I have the first three about the Houses in .pdf, if anyone is interested.
As well as catching up with these, last year saw Hunters of Dune
, which sets up the final book, Sandworms of Dune
, which came out last month. That is the next book...
I've also recently enjoyed another Frank Herbert novel written before Dune. The Dragon in the Sea
, also known as Under Pressure
. It's about a post-nuclear war submarine mission. It's a really good thriller, partially because it is psychological.
