These are my personal recommendations of fantasy and sci-fi books, books I have read and enjoyed thoroughly.

Apart from the obvious good read (or listen), books can be a great source of inspiration. Personally, I’d say, the best source of inspiration, because reading is an interpretation in itself. Many of my ideas for colour schemes come out of books but the obvious lack of images (apart from neat maps) means that a lot of the inspiration is coloured by my own imagination. The best of both worlds?
