I'm excited that Altered Carbon is going to be a Netflix series, and not a Joel Silver-produced film, as it was originally suggested.
I'm reading Richard Morgan's Broken Angels.Before that re-read Altered Carbon (doesn't count as read it 8 years ago)
Congrats to the homie Still wish didn't have to make the white dude the lead though.

Huzzah! I just found out that Altered Carbon is going to be on Netflix. It was a fantastic read. I hope Land Fit for Heroes gets picked up.
3 people found your book recommendation for 'Altered Carbon' to be helpful this week. thanks! -
Yeah, it's annoying! They did the same thing with the Takeshi Kovacz series (Altered Carbon). I read the print version instead
I hope that Altered Carbon Netflix series is good because its by the same screenwriter.
Looks like the plot of Netflix Altered Carbon is going to be a little different than the book...
During my vacation I read English fiction translated to Finnish for the first time in a while. (Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan.)
If you'll go for sci fi noir, read "Altered Carbon" by Richard K Morgan - Also fantastic!
That said, we're getting Altered Carbon on Netflix, so maybe the day will come?
YES to all this. Miéville's NewCrobuzon trilogy, Morgan's Altered Carbon & Reynolds Revelation Space rule the roost.
If you're in the mood for gritty sci-fi, read Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan.
4 of 5 stars to Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan
just finished altered carbon lady week. Superb book. Did u know they're making a series?
hopefully we'll get that again with the Altered Carbon netflix series. The books are breathtaking. The scope, the ambition.
Reading some Richard Morgan books like Altered Carbon again. Related:
our TV dept working on Altered Carbon actually works at 4k now though, no upscaling allowed. Tv is ahead of film.

Our transport of carbon from ground to sky has altered the atmosphere much like a comet’s impact
FYI: Altered Carbon will be a (hard) R-rated sci fi show, Netflix's answer to GoT
This week's is "Altered Carbon" by Richard K. Morgan. I wish I liked it as much as my neighbor did.
Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan was a very good book. Can't wait for the adaptation.
re-listening to Richard K Morgan's 13, he does cyberpunk well, give Altered Carbon a try (Audio versions is great)...

Richard K Morgan - Altered Carbon, Broken Angels, Woken Furies. His world building and character development is top tier.
Larry Niven is one of my fav authors. Love his short stories the most. Also, have you read Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan?
Richard K Morgan's Altered Carbon focuses more on human advancements than megacity
Actually, I say that. Charles Stross' "The Glasshouse" was pretty good, as were the "Altered Carbon" trilogy by Richard Morgan.
I hope Altered Carbon does well so they get to the space archaeology of Broken Angels ... and hopefully inspire Morgan to write more.
you should read Altered Carbon by Richard K Morgan

Deciding what book series I should start next. Thinking either Daniel Abraham's Long Price Quartet or Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan.
some of my favs are, Neuromancer, Snow Crash, Diamond Age, Altered Carbon, Ware Tetraology, Holy Fire
"And make no mistake about this: being taken seriously, being considered dangerous, marks the difference - the only difference in their eyes - between players and little people. Players they will make deals with. Little people they liquidate. And time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal executions with the ultimate insult that it's just business, it's politics, it's the way of the world, it's a tough life, and that it's nothing personal. Well f[---] them. Make it personal." -Richard K. Morgan, "Altered Carbon"
"Nova Praxis rips off the singularity and transhuman elements from Eclipse Phase." See, here's the thing. As is pointed out in the video below, Eclipse Phase didn't invent the concept of the Technological Singularity (ask John von Neumann who first talked about it in the 50's), nor the idea of transhumanity. In fact, Eclipse Phase very clearly "rips off" aspects of Altered Carbon, Revelation Space, and many others. And so did Nova Praxis. And Nova Praxis also goes on to "rip off" Mass Effect, Deus Ex, and other inspirational sources. That's how fiction works. But the idea that anyone can "rip off" the concept of the singularity and transhumanism is laughable. These are not niche genre traits invented by a single author. They are cultural and technological movements. You can call it "transhuman sci-fi", but it's really just "sci-fi". It's the way things are going. It's the most reasonable and likely path for humanity's future currently proposed in fiction. I've said it many times, and I'll say it again her ...
Last night I finished reading "Altered Carbon", a cyberpunk Noir thriller. The universe is based around the conceit that human personalities & memories can be digitised, transmitted, and downloaded into fresh bodies (or "sleeves"). The tale follows Takeshi Kovacs, a mercenary hired (against his will) to uncover the mysterious death of billionaire Lauren's Bancroft. It's very good.
Anything by William Gibson, "Snow Crash"by Neal Stephenson (one of my favorites), Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan
Red Mars is by Kim Stanley Robinson. I'd look at Richard Morgan's Altered Carbon and Black Man.
he won a Hugo award with his first novel, Altered Carbon. He writes his fantasy very much like cyberpunk, but it isn't as good imo
Listening to "Altered Carbon" by Richard Morgan... pretty good, kind of a Blade Runner-esk thing going on
