Jason, check out the action/thriller "Triple Cross" by Mark T. Sullivan and for some fantastic fantasy/adventure "The First Law Trilogy" by Joe Abercrombie, "The Riyria Revelations Series" by Michael J. Sullivan, and "Tales of the Dying Earth" by Jack Vance is perhaps the quintessential collection of sci/fi fantasy/adventure stories ever written by one of the most revered and awarded authors to write in this genre. The words that come to mind when trying to describe his incredible achievement are: wondrous, magnificent, epic, spellbinding, dazzling, exquisite, inventive, eclectic verbiage, magical, elegant, enthralling, engrossing, imaginative, original, mellifluous pacing, atmospheric backdrops, transformational, fantastical storylines! I read the first story in this collection when i was 11 years old and the others in the ensuing years. Over the years I have read the collection over 20 times, each time reflecting on the joy it brings me and its life changing impact on my reading addiction. Just imagine being able to transform written words from your minds eye into life-like visions and you will then understand the sensual impact of Jack Vance's brilliance! Ironically, because of its unique qualities I have always been protective and therefore reluctant to expose this truly fabulous literary experience to others for fear of diminishing its value to me...a misguided supposition I know, but true never-the-less. So, if you want to take a journey into the unknown and wander through the beautiful worlds as penned by a master scribe then you will want to read this incredible collection of stories and revel in their beatific perfection. Storytelling at its best; a masterpiece...
Jason hi and Merry Christmas to you and yours. Because you enjoy Robert Ludlum as much as I do I think you would really like Vince Flynn's "Mitch Rapp" series as well as Jack Higgins "Sean Doyle" series. Also, if you like kick-butt anti-hero protagonists you will love Lee Childs "Jack Reacher" series (first book is "The Killing Floor"). Enjoy and READ ON...
