Secret Pratchett fanatics are leaping out of the literary closet faster than Vermine.

So what's your secret book stash (no, not the 'illustrated Gentleman's pamphlet with wipe-clean pages')?

Favourite trashy read while dropping a particularly stubborn trout?

Throwback to your angst-ridden teenage years?

Handy 300 page novel that can be read while the Mrs is getting ready?

Put your hands up and confess what you really read while the 'serious' books gather dust!

Big fan of Clive Cussler's work, though currently hooked on Conn Iggulden's "Emperor" and "Conquerer" series - step up from Dirk Pitt for adventure reading.

I'm hooked on a new author, Janes McGee who has written two novels 'Ratcatcher' and 'Resurrecionist'. The hero is an ex-Rifle Brigade officer and it is set toward end of Peninsular wars. Hero is a Bow Street Runner. Wonderful descriptions of London at that time, and good storylines. I earnestly recommend them.

Ratcatcher was good (although a smidge similar to Gallows Thief by a certain Mr Cornwell, and there were a couple of other Sharpeisms) - I'll have to get the second.

Who the hell voted for Bunty? :D :D

The Flashman series is excellent, and heartily recommended.

Recently though, I've been reading Simon Scarrow's Eagle series, and Conn Igulden's Emperor. These are also great reads, and have set me on a bit of a Roman theme. Does anyone have any other similar Roman novels they'd recommend

Tom Clancy......why? He should have stopped after Red October.

Ultimate secret addict...

Horus Heresy books, from the Warhammer 40k series. Dont get me wrong, i have no idea how those little models should be painted, and even less idea how the game works (something to do with rulers and algebra possibly), but i love the books for their copious amounts of violence, and strong plot...

Bernard Cornwell also wrote some very good thrillers with a nautical background, Wildtrack, Sea Lord, Crackdown, Stormchild and Scoundrel.
Good reading matter. Nothing taxing, but enjoyable.

Bah. If you haven't left your Patrick O'Brian in the departure lounge you've never known cold turkey.

Jilly Cooper. From Riders, Rivals all the way through to Wicked!. Read 'em all. I bet my father who lashed out all that money on my education will be delighted.

Geoffrey Deaver is a good airport read.
