Science Fiction / Fantasy Novels

Recently, I’ve been reading novels by Jack McDevitt. He is a popular writer of science fiction / fantasy novels. I’ve read five of his books so far, and will likely read more! The books I’ve read are from two different ongoing character sets. One is focused on an antiques dealer who uses his detective skills and his partner to solve interesting space-age mysteries, I’ve read two books from this set—Polaris and the recently released Seeker. I think the first in the set is A Talent for War, but I have not read it yet.

The second set of books focus on the adventures of a faster-than-light spaceship pilot, Hutch, and the adventures she gets caught up in, which inevitably result is some heroic rescues toward the end. I’ve read Deep Six and Chindi, and am currently reading The Engines of God.

I highly recommend all these books! I haven’t had so much fun with a novel in a long time. They are great, quick reads when you need to escape this world.
