I'm reading the Sime~Gen series. Written in the late seventies and early eighties they are a bit telly and head hop. I'm reading them in order, but unfortunately they weren't written in order.
I'd read the first in the series, House of Zeor, just after it was first published in 1977, when I was in HS. It kept my interest all the way through. I thought I'd read it again and found it still captured my interest. I found that it's a series now, and I'm working my way through the books on kindle.
