Un (abashed, heralded)

By Adam Roberts | December 16, 2008

Stumbled across this assessment from Liviu C Suciu, recorded for all eternity on Mark Chitty's Walker of Worlds blog: "I am an unabashed Roberts fan and I consider him the best 'unheralded' sf author there by far, on par with any big sf name you care to mention.' Nice to know!

    Liviu has very similar tastes to mine so I'm looking forward to get into Splinter. I have to ask though - what of your other books would you recommend to an Adam Roberts newcomer? And thanks for the link Adam, very much appreciated!

    I'm sure Adam would argue (and rightly so) that he has progressed as a writer since it was published, but my first Roberts book was Salt, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it as an introduction to his work - its a rare novel of both intellectual ambition and literary panache.

    I would recommend "Stone" as a starting point. It's a fun, entertaing novel. Its intellectual depth is of the same order of other Roberts' novels, however. It's the one that got me hooked.

    My favourite amongst my novels is often the one I wrote most recently: in this case Yellow Blue Tibia; and before that Swiftly. But what I like in my books doesn't seem to correlate with what other people like in them, when they do like them: so Josť's advice is good.

    I'll always have a soft spot for ON. But I've never read anything by Adam, of any length, that wasn't utterly brilliant and totally amazing.

    Why, thank you Lou!
