Also for the spy genre and Matthew Reilly ( but believable) fans .
The Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn is a great terrorist/ spy series.

Just finished reading The Beast With Five Fingers a collection of stories by W.F. Harvey (1885-1937) I particularly enjoyed the title story, The Man Who Hated Aspidistras and The Clock but all the stories were interesting. They made a movie based on Five Fingers...

The Straw Men trilogy by Michael Marshall is an outstanding read for anyone who enjoys crime fiction. This guy always manages to come up with a twisted plot that makes you want to continue reading. He's written some science fiction as well under a different name.

One can never get ahead of a reading wish list. It doesn't matter how hard you try. I will have to post a photo of my own graphic novel/comic book collection. I'm rather proud of it-though it would have been so much more impressive if I wasn't coerced into selling a large portion when I moved from Sydney.

Graphic novel recommendations.

I love a lot of the stuff that Vertigo have released such as;
100 Bullets
Scalped
Preacher
DMZ
Army Love
Loveless
American Vampire

Image have released some great series as well;
Morning Glories
Thief of Thieves
Kill or Be Killed
Stray Bullets
Southern Bastards
Chew
Velvet

Avatar is good for twisted sickness;
Uber
Crossed
Fashion Beast
Stitched
Neonomicon
Black Gas

Criminal which was released by Icon is awesome.

Dark Horse used to be pretty cool but have gone off the boil of late.

Robert Kirkman's Outcast is cool, and the colour release of the Walking Dead is bloody amazing.

The Stand omnibus released through Marvel is fantastic also.

Anything by Garth Ennis.

The next book on my list, is "Night Train to Varanasi" by Sean Doyle, which was only released last week.

I'll post a review when I'm done.
