Hi! I've been searching around recently for some new forums based on writing and reading that I would like to get in to. Glad to have stumbled upon this one as it seems one of the most active so far.
Im Australian, and enjoy reading sci fi / fantasy, but recently I've been drawn towards the cyber punk - dystopian style of sci fi. I like the grittier edge they have. Ive read most of the usual suspects, but if anyone has found any gems in these areas I would love to hear reccommendations.
Cheers :)

Hello and welcome to BCF. Every time I read Australia somewhere I think of kangaroos and this song:

haha, such a good song. It's a tad inaccurate though, only about 70% of us are actually like the people portrayed in that video.

Welcome, dreadnaught! When you say the usual dystopian suspects did that include The Handmaid's Tale? If you haven't read that one I recommend it.

Most of the interesting Cyber Punk stuff I have read lately was all YA, but unfortunately my kindle busted a while back so I can't recall any titles.

Hello dreadnaught ! Even I am new here !! Hope I would have great experience here. Reading and writing is my hobby.  Specially, I love to read about psycology and spiritual articles and work as manager at simplysellbooks.
