The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan

I ordered yesterday from Amazon Richard Morgan’s last book: The Steel Remains. In case you don’t know, Richard Morgan became famous for his Takeshi Kovacs science fiction trilogy: Altered Carbon, Broken Angels and Woken Furries. Three books which I read without stopping and then I did it again.

Now he started another trilogy called A Land Fit For Heroes and The Steel Remains is the first book. It’s not SF this time, but fantasy. I am very curious how the fantasy genre combines with Morgan’s brutal style but apparently, quite well. I recently read a review about this book and the bottom line sounded something like this:

“Bold, brutal, and making no compromises – Morgan doesn’t so much twist the cliches of fantasy as take an axe to them. Then set them on fire. Then put them out by pissing on them.”

Not bad, I can’t wait to read it ;-)

    I’ve read it in one night, so yeah, it’s pretty awesome…also, if you want another good series, check out David Luis Edelman’s Infoquake and Ian McDonald’s River of Gods.
