Greetings,

Zahn is a good sci-fi author.

His Thrawn trilogy - and a later sequel duology - in the Star Wars universe was excellent.

Kindest regards,

James

I’ve heard really good things about the Thrawn trilogy. I may look into it after I’m done with StarCraft: Evolution.

The Martian by Andy Weir.

I thought the movie adaptation was fantastic. I love me some hard sci fi once in a while, so I figured I’d eventually read the book. I was gonna look into buying something from the Thrawn trilogy, but The Martian was on sale at iBooks, so I decided to get that first.

Robin Hobb and her The Realm of Elderlings books.

It's a series consists of three trilogies and one tetralogy. I can't remember titles of all the books and to which sub-series they belong so I'll go with numbers. Here's a link to an article at Wikipedia that lists all the books in the series: The Realm of the Elderlings

I enjoyed the 1st trilogy, The Farseer Trilogy, even though the final book in that one was a bit slow and I almost gave up on it.
I skipped the 2nd trilogy, The Liveship Traders and went on to read the 3rd one, The Tawnyman Trilogy. I finished it yesterday. I didn't read any other books in this series but I think the next I'll read will be the 2nd trilogy.

The 2 trilogies I read were focused around Fitz. I really liked the character and the world, despite the fact that I didn't like the 3rd book in the original trilogy.
I missed the world and the characters and was curious what happened to Fitz after the original trilogy. I'm glad I decided to read the 3rd trilogy, which continues Fitz' story. It was great and I recommend it if you like at least some of the books in the original trilogy.

In other news, The Oathbringer, the 3rd book in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive series is about to be released
