If you want some older fantasy, The Charwoman's Shadow, by Lord Dunsany, has a good close look at a really chilling scary wizard.
I've lost my copy and am still looking for it or a replacement.

  • The Culture series by Iain M. Banks. Published order is good.
  • Anything by William Gibson.
  • Anything by Kurt Vonnegut. Maybe skip Player Piano to start.

Last Sci-fi book I read was The Heart Goes Last. You should give it a try.

The Wild Cards shared world novels are mostly good (wasn't a fan of books 9-12).
The more recent American Hero/Committee trilogy is a good point to start (although starting there would blunt a few of the big reveals)
