I'm reading Demolished Man, and it's very interesting.  It's a murder mystery where the cops are telepaths.

Reading Leviathan Wakes, the first Expanse novel (which has a show now).  It's pretty damn good, it's about a war being started between the Asteroid Belt people (the Belters) and Mars (and Earth is probably involved somehow).  Haven't finished yet.

I can't watch the show, but fortunately I've heard that the books are much better.  Let me know how you like it after you finish.

You should try "to the stars, my destination" I believe its by the same author

Also, Leviathan was really good if you like science fiction that's fairly grounded and not very fantastic.  I'll probably finish the show, but it does diverge from the first book a bit so I'll pick up the others.

The Stars My Destination, pretty good.  I liked Demolished Man a bit more though.  Got a bit technobabbley at the end imo.

Read The Man in the High Castle.  Wasn't what I was expecting honestly, I guess I was looking for more Nazi fighting action.  It seemed to be more of a depressing study of how people would pretty much be ok with Nazis running half the Earth (with Japan running the other half).

Just a Geek, heart warming and amusing Wil Wheaton autobiography type book.

Thor Ragnarok, but the one from 1966.  Awesome as hell frankly, even though the ending was a cop out involving that Redhead Thor guy.

To be honest, PKD was alot better at concept than execution. Its been awhile since I read "The Man in the High Castle", but i remember thinking the dimension shifting and the iching stuff was kinda weird and distracting.  His best book imo, is "A Scanner Darkly", the characters and drug culture rang very true with my experiences hanging out with my druggie best friend in our 20's.

Im rereading "American Gods"

Oh, he had the Anansi Boys idea first, but he wrote American Gods first.
