You have arrived at Seer’s Gate where you can peer through and glimpse the cloudy future.
I have Seen stories that will make you feel you are wandering the streets of Caemlyn while you are getting your daily exercise, piloting an Ornithopter over the deserts of Arrakis instead of commuting to your workplace, or changing the rushes in the chambers of Harrenhall instead of cleaning your modern abode.
Stories I have Seen and enjoyed include:
- The A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin
- The Lions of Al-Rassan by Guy Gavriel Kay
- The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester
- The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
- Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
- The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss
- Wolfskin by Juliet Marillier
- Perdido Street Station by China Mieville
- Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein
- Lord of the Silver Bow by David Gemmell
I can tell you which audiobooks lie in your future, for I have been there and heard them already. So many exist that, if you are mortal, you will never hear them all. BUT TAKE HEED! They are not all good. You must therefore choose wisely. Choose well. Choose those glimpsed at Seer’s Gate.
