The books in order are The Pericles Commission, The Ionia Sanction, Sacred Games, The Marathon Conspiracy, and the newest addition, Death Ex Machina.
Recently I asked Corby about what he was reading. His reply:
I read across a rather wide range. That’s a healthy thing for any author. Here’s what I have open:Visit Gary Corby's blog.
The Fallible Fiend, by L. Sprague de Camp. I’ve always thought L. Sprague de Camp had the perfect writer’s name. He was a very brilliant fantasy writer at the height of the golden age of SF&F, and also apparently a true world expert on ancient machinery. The Fallible Fiend is one of his funniest and best imagined books, about a gentle, philosophic demon who is indentured to serve on a fantasy earth for one year. Highly recommended.
The Key To Rebecca, by Ken Follett. Would you believe I’ve never read this very famous thriller? I’m now correcting that omission. It’s a WWII espionage tale set in Egypt.
The Real Book, sixth edition. I play guitar, purely for fun, so don’t expect to see me gigging stadiums any time soon. However I finished the manuscript for the sixth Athenian Mystery on the very same day that Death Ex Machina released. That means I have some down time between books! I’m taking the chance to play guitar. The Real Book is a famous collection of jazz standards. So I’m reading, but what I’m reading is music.
