    Starship troopers: Horrible movie, interesting read. Robert Heinlin or something along those lines is the author.

    David Gemmell wrote a great series about the trojan war.. Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow, Shield of Thunder, and Fall of Kings.

    I just finished Dennis Leary's- Why We Suck. If your a fan of his, its absolutely fantastic.

    I saw Stephen King mentioned here.. Eyes of the Dragon is my personal favourite of his.

    Also, not quite on the same level as far as in depth reading as some others, but for star wars fans, the Darth Bane trilogy is worth the read.

    Rivet, check out those Gemmell books if you have the time, if your into the ancient mediterranean scene

    Did Gemmell write some fantasy stuff too? I think I remember the name...something about a kid named Galen or something? If it was, it wasn't bad.

    I loved Ender's Game and all the books in the series. I've been hearing interesting things about a movie.

    I think I'm thinking of David Eddings? He wrote straight fantasy stuff. I'll check out Gemmell when I get a chance.

    But that also reminds me: Robert Holdstock wrote some incredibly different fantasy stuff that I really liked, the Merlin Codex. He's got other stuff that I'd wanted to check out, but I haven't made time for it. Very unique writer, really captured the feel of the iron age, in my opinion.

    I used to read a lot and actually wrote a few short stories too. I'm into George Orwell mainly, I've read all his books. When I was younger I was big into political stuff so I read Guevara books, stuff on Stalin/Hitler.

    I also see Dave Gemmel mentioned here, I was a huge fan of his books when I was 17-18, I digested 2-3 a week. Really good author, I cried like a baby reading some of them.

    J.R.R. Tolkien is the man too obviously.

    Just finished "This Book Is Full of Spiders" by David Wong, which is the sequel to his bestselling "John Dies at the End" and I can't recommend it enough for those who love gonzo oddities with a horror/comedy blend.

    Loved it.
