Looking for great space opera
Entre no LibraryThing para poder publicar.
Could you now also recommend some good examples?
Based on this new to me definition, some that I've enjoyed are:
This Alien Shore , In Conquest Born, This Alien Shore by C. S. Friedman
Confederation and Peacekeeper
The Murderbot Diaries
Though I recommend Honor Harrington as a good space opera/military space opera
I am at the 2/3 point on Zones of Thought. I was impressed with the first book and liked the second better.
I'm a fan of The Kefahuchi Tract books, but they are definitely not to all tastes.
I also like Delany's space operas Nova and Babel-17.
Space Opera is my favorite. I am hoping to get some recommendations for new books I haven't read yet from this thread.
Title confusion arises because the two novels were combined in one volume for UK publication, and given the title of the first one. So whether you're expecting a stand-alone novel or a duo depends on where you're located.
* The Expanse is absolutely outstanding. i still need to read Memory’s Legion to complete that series.
* The Imperial Radch series which has now grown to 5 novels is really enjoyable.
* CJ Cherryh’s Company Wars / Alliance-Union universe is compelling reading. I still need to get to her more recent Alliance Rising novel.
"So you recently taught me that space opera now means something different than what I originally understood it to mean."
Where did the discussion of the working definition of "space opera" occur and what is the agreed upon working definition?
Apropos the talk of Steve Millers death - Based on the few Liaden books I’ve read, those would probably also fit this definition.
But interesting that Murderbot wouldn’t be considered space opera with the new, expanded definition. Maybe it isn’t grand enough.
Anyway - a lot of interesting discussions and proposals for new reading - just started Some desperate glory by Emily Tesh due to the recommendations here.
