Boy, can I empathize with the "once I get the money" problem! Take things at whatever pace is comfortable for you.
More suggestions? You are a glutton for punishment, aren't you? Well, for a fellow atheist, I'd suggest my book Polly!, which one GoodReads member described as "blasphemous" and "highly offensive," so I think I've done something right. I'm planning to issue a new, revised edition of Polly! around the first of the year, so I'd suggest waiting about 6 weeks before you go for that one...but if my other suggestions are on your to-read list...well, there's 2 Jade Darcy books, 4 Parsina books, and 10 Agents of ISIS books to keep you busy (once you get the money), so a 6-week wait shouldn't be too unbearable.
Well, probably my best stand-alone science fiction book is The Eternity Brigade, if you like military sf. If you enjoy epic fantasy, I'm proud of my Parsina Saga, starting with The Shrine of Sarafiq. Lots of people are fond of my heroine Jade Darcy. If you like good ol' fashioned space opera adventure, try Tsar Wars, the first book in my Agents of ISIS series. I can be even more immodest, if you like. I'm easy to encourage!
Hi Donegal, you have a splendidly wise range of interest. Welcome to this friendly meeting place---the freethinkers world of rational good sense based on scientific truths and not on silly superstitions.
