Other Authors Are Available

These are books I've recommended or mentioned on this site (or reviewed elsewhere). Everything I've listed here is something I like and you may well too - I don't tend to mention books on here I hate, because to be honest life's too short to spend ages intellectualising about why crap is crap.

As well as the books below, you can also find my favourite individual stories read in 201320142015 and 2016.
