M. K. Eidem (under construction)

Choosing my 2nd favourite author haven't been as easy, believe me.
But that's her and I will add more soon.

Mackey Chandler

Well, I could say: I love his books, his way of thinking or getting you to think things over.
But since his books are one of those I love rereading over and over, that seems a better compliment than giving adjectives.

There are two series and a few standalones/novellas, but these are my favourites (so this is no complete list of his works):

April series
April
Down to Earth
The Middle of Nowhere
A Different Perspective
A Depth of Understanding
And What Goes Around
They Said it would be Easy
It's Always Something
A Sudden Departure (Book 9)

Family Law series
Family Law
The long Voyage of the Little Fleet
Secrets in the Stars

Standalones/Novellas
Paper or plastic?

I myself started with Family Law and later on with April.
There will be a crossover for the April series in the few hundred years later setting of the Family Law series - but both are in the future of our Earth.
Both series start with the main character (April and Lee) beeing female and children.
Don't let that be an hindrance for you - they will be growing up.
But if you're addicted to passionate sex scenes, you won't find those and have to use your own fantasy.
Both series offer a lot technical advance and with Family Law there will be aliens too.

Paper or plastic? is unfortunately a standalone, I love the characters and wouldn't mind reading more about them and reaching for the stars. The main character is male and the story evolves around meeting, helping and... (hah, no more spoilers) out an alien female.

But for being able to read his books, you should check on following:

  • You must be open to cultural, religious and even more to political differences.
  • You should be able to see both sides (and maybe between).
  • You should have an open mind since different people have different truths.

If you checked all that with a yes - read them.
If you checked all that with 1 or more no's - read them nevertheless and work more on the "have an open mind" part.

Getting started

Hi there!

I'm a passionate little bookworm from Germany.

I haven't commited myself to certain genres, but have a few authors I can't get enough of.
Since several years I'm also a fan of e-books and I fear my old favourites in my cupboard haven't gotten enough credit for a while.
Nevertheless I guess I will start leisured with those series I'm still hoping that there will be more books to come ^^

Ah, I may be from Germany, but if you're here to get tips on German books - you won't find that here.
I've got a little tick in reading in Englisch only.

Please connive at mistakes in language or Grammar, I'm trying my best.
