If you Like That...Try this... #sfr #scifi #romance

You know how if you read or watch something that you really like, and you want more? But it's the last of the series, or a one-off, or if there just isn't more? Sucks, doesn't it? So, some of us decided that this week we'd do some posts to help you out. We've drawn on books, films and TV series, picking the things we like, and then tried to give you some titles we think are similar, and tags about why - what elements tie them together. Hopefully we've given you some great alternatives to try out. Here we go...

If you like Doctor Who/Torchwood, try - Kicking Ashe by Pauline Baird Jones, Keir by Pippa Jay (adventures in time and space, some romance, aliens, technology), Tin Cat by Misa Buckley (time traveller)

If you like Hunger Games, try - Alien Blood by Melisse Aires (survival of the fittest, game show, romance)

If you like Star Wars, try - The Iron Admiral by Greta van der Rol (space opera, space battles) or Gethyon by Pippa Jay (scifi adventure, technology, light against dark, young hero)

If you like Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, try - Unknown Futures by Jessica E Subject (space station, romance, technology, aliens) or Terms & Conditions Apply by Pippa Jay (space station, androids, aliens)

If you like superhero stories (Superman, Batman, Avengers, Agents of SHIELD etc) try - Blaze of Glory by Sheryl Nantus (superheroes, alien invaders) Super Zero by Rhonda Stapleton or Even Villains Fall in Love by Liana Brooks (superheroes, evil mastermind)

If you like Bladerunner/Matrix, try - Unacceptable Risk by Jeanette Grey (gritty cyberpunk, technology, dystopian) or Jaq's Harp by Ella Drake (gritty biopunk).
