Takeshi Kovacs…

…is the coolest character in Sci-Fi.

I’d like to meet Richard Morgan, because I reckon he’d be just as brutally funny as Takeshi Kovacs is throughout the writer’s debut and subsequent books that document the character’s adventures. I strongly recommend these books to anyone with a thirst for contemporary sci-fi.

Altered Carbon

Broken Angels

Woken Furies

I loved reading all of these books. They get progressively more intricate from the action packed debut, the reflective melancholy of the second and the down right murky but conceptually rewarding third (and final?) chapter.

I’m really looking forward to the films. They have to be made!

    I wrote to Richard asking him to consider a fourth in the series and was pleasantly surprised to get a nice reply saying …he just might … 🙂

    He’s a lovely chap. I wrote to him to ask if he’d be interested in working on a game of ours, and he very politely declined.

    We’ll ask him again in a year when we’ve got some buzz and see what he says then 🙂
