'ello, figured I’d take a swing.
Wow, Grant Naylor. I’d forgotten about him. The Red Dwarf books were awesome. And Rob Grant was still good when he struck on his own. I particularly enjoyed Incompetence.
If I could only read a single author it would likely be my fellow Canadian Spider Robinson. He’s the only person I’d ever term a ‘wordsmith’. Capable of incredibly funny books that cover some of the hard sciences but also have an emotional human core.
Milkshake? Ha, I haven’t had one of those since I was ten years old. Though I will say the most revolting milkshake I ever had was marshmallow flavoured. I used to make a habit of seeking out odd flavours, and did I ever find an odd one that day.
Question for whoever might want to answer it: What story or series did you enjoy, but also made you want to throw the book up against the wall?
For me it was the Human Sholan Alliance books by Lisanne Norman. Amazing story, wonderful characters. Then she spent three whole books absolutely tearing apart one of my most beloved characters of all time and turning him into a right bugger.
