    The GF book thread

    I don’t tend to think in lists of “Best ever…” as I rarely re-read stuff; rather I’m always on the look out for something new. However, here are a few favourites that spring to mind now, in no particular order (I’ve deffo forgotten stuff too): His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman (think you have to treat it as one work) The Takeshi Kovacs books by Richard Morgan Iain M. Banks’ Culture books John Connelly’s Parker books The Kenzie and Gennaro books by Dennis Lehane Different Seasons, The Dark Tower books and The Green Mile (and others too, actually) by Stephen King World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks Most James Ellroy books (although I’ve struggled with his most recent few) The Preacher series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman The Cole and Pike books by Robert Crais Where Eagles Dare and The Satan Bug by Alistair Maclean Day Of The Triffids by John Wyndham The Death Of Grass by John Christopher The Secret History by Donna Tartt The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks Red Dragon by Thomas Harris The Eaters Of The Dead by Michael Crichton (in fact most of his books) The Gentleman Bastard books by Scott Lynch Richard Stark’s Parker novels Michael Connelly’s Bosch novels Bernard Cornwell’s Sharpe books & the Uhtred series La Peste by Albert Camus Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe Most of Don Winslow’s books Mark Lawrence’s stuff: The Broken Empire trilogy, The Red Queen’s War trilogy, The Book Of The Ancestor trilogy and The Book Of The Ice Trilogy The Millennium books by Stieg Larsson The Harry Hole books by Jo Nesbo The Name Of The Rose by Umberto Eco The Rampart Trilogy - MR Carey

    The GF book thread

    Finished The River by Pete Heller. It’s about two best friends who go on a canoe expedition in the wilds of Canada and get caught up with two other parties who may or may not have ill intentions. It was really good and, as with The Dog Stars, really well written. Got five samples downloaded now and not sure what to go with next. Might start with some SF and Neal Asher’s Polity universe with Gridlinked, the first Agent Cormac book.

    Beats and pieces

    Ha, ha, ha!!! Just a got a shout out off Gilles on 6Music. 50 years old and still pathetically made up about it!
  4. I was a rum and coke man for years but about ten years ago I started getting into G&Ts and now they’re hands down my favourite tipple above anything else. I fucking love ‘em! And cucumber tonic is some next level booze shenanigans.
  5. Just remembered a boss cucumber salad I stole from somewhere last summer and did loads during lockdown one: ribbons of cucumber (use a potato peeler) dressed with soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Sensaysh.
  6. Some bad cases of “primary school palate”* on here. *AKA Usheritis.
  7. The whole principle of a gin and tonic is that it’s a three ingredient cocktail: gin, tonic and something else. The something else depends on both the gin and the tonic you’re using. So for a basic Friday night tipple after work, I like Lidl’s Hortus gin (sensational for the price), Fevertree cucumber tonic and a chunk of cucumber. It’s amazing.
  8. It’s a cheese butty with added predictive text meddling.
  9. They’re the fucking bomb when done right. And right means a fat chunk in a strong gin and cucumber tonic or in a tomato and cucumber salad with salt, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Shit is real, yo. Nice thinly sliced in a cheese butty too.

    Finished The Postman. It wasn’t all that. About to start a sample of The River by Peter Heller.
