This is probably cooler than whatever you listen to
Pretty much everything Stephen King has ever written. Something
about the detail and world building in his writing just sets my
imagination off and I never get tired of reading his stories. Same
deal with Michael Crichton, Andromeda Strain is one of the best
fiction books ever written. Battle Royale. Dirk Pitt series up to
and including Sahara. Shade's children. The Road. Blood Meridian.
High Rise by JG Ballard. His Dark Materials Trilogy (should have
been bigger than Harry Potter in the Young Adult fiction world).
Colossus, I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream. Disneyland of the
Gods, The Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings, Our Haunted Planet.
Tolkien of course. The Expanse soon to be trilogy. Day by Day
Armageddon. I've read all of A Song of Ice and Fire, although A
Dance With Dragons was a disappointment.
