Master of the Inkstained Robes

This was going to be a 'recommended reading' list for a while, then I started thinking of movies.

* The Lies of Locke Lamora (Scott Lynch)
* Anansi Boys (Neil Gaiman)
* Three Days To Never (Tim Powers)
* Declare (also Tim Powers)
* The Anubis Gates (also Tim Powers)
* Tale of the Fox and Wisdom of the Fox (Harry Turtledove)
* King Rat (China Mieville)
* Un Lun Dun (China Mieville)
* 1632 (Eric Flint)
* Fight Club (Chuck Palaniuk)
* Heroes Die (Matthew Woodring Stover)

(It was reading the Lies of Locke Lamora that inspired me to make this post. The other books are afterthoughts)

* Intacto
* Maverick
* Plunkett and Macleane
* Requiem for a Dream

TV Shows
* Leverage
* Burn Notice
* Farscape
* Firefly
* Chuck
* Brimstone
* Strange Luck
* Odyssey 5


Everyone else is free to pipe up with suggestions. What has inspired you to do a Fastlane game? What have you read, or watched, that you think would fit into the Fastlane philosophy?

I'd have to go with Thieves' World, definitely. The original anthology especially has an ethos that fits Fastlane perfectly.
