Looking for Fantasy, Science-Fiction Suggetions

Recommended Posts

To be fair, most modern space opera is completely unlike Star Trek.  The problem is, the long-running series are all Military SF, which doesn't help the OP with his search.

 

 

ETA: Another one to throw in - Arthur C. Clarke's 'Rama' series.

 

 

ETA2:  And Jack McDevitt's got a couple of series, too.

 

Many thanks for the reccomedations.

I was really using "Star Trek" as an over-arching term for military structures in Sci-fi stories.  The structure of the Culture is probably the most un-military I’ve come across, even when they go to war!

Which other modern space opera have you read, for comparison?

Welcome to the forum!

 

I can't really expand on the SF list above but I can highly recommend:

 

Fantasy:

 

Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bast*ard series starting with The Lies of Locke Lamora.

Brandon Sanderson - Mistborn trilogy

Joe Abercrombie - First Law

 

Thriller:

 

Patrick Lee - The Runner is a fantastic read and fits your criteria quite well I think.

 

I read the synopsis on amazon, and I think The Runner is exactly what I need. Already placed on my wish list.

Nexusfactor did you see my suggestions for Jack Vance earlier on your thread? Only you haven't mentioned them I thought you may have missed them.
