Book tastes

My fiction tastes are quite wide, particular favourites include classic crime (although I've read every Christie and Sayers), comic fantasy (Pratchett and Gaiman), comic romance (Heyer), the odd thriller (I've just discovered Jack Reacher). If you have a favourite book or author that you think I might enjoy, do send. Surprise me.

Don't get this!

Horror. Graphic novels. Also no Lee Child, a friend has supplied me with all his Reacher novels.
