I've been reading Robert E. Howard's Conan short stories recently. They are freaking awesome.

Are there any other good books? what are your top books?

Been working my way through Agatha Christie's oeuvre and I gotta say, she's popular for a reason.

I've never even heard of Michael Moorcock. I will look into his books.

The developers of Warhammer Age of Sigmar were influenced by Moorcock. That is is a fact that can no more easily be denied than the reality of gravity.

There isn't a larger condemnation of a piece of media for me than telling me it influenced Age of Sigmar.

I've been reading Dubliners little by little recently.  It's a lot more approachable than I thought it would be.  Maybe it's time to take another crack at Ulysses.

I don't have an opinion about Age of Sigmar one way or the other. I read the Wiki article and it mentioned Moorcock as a source of inspiration.

I got the orc and human starter pack when I was like 11. I think that was Fantasy also known as Old World. I'm not really sure what the difference is between that and AoS. My friend says the skaven almost devoured everything in the world until King Sigmar put them into check. I can't be bothered to Google simple lore so I assume he is correct.

By the way I ordered an Orc Kill Team and my buddy and I glued them and primed them yesterday . Those are the first GW minis I've bought in more than 20 years.

I bought 1x Genestealers Combat Patrol
 I'm going to go ahead and use this thread to keep the community updated on my foray into tabletop war gaming.

I got Sick Societies recently.  It's a fairly dry academic work, but it does an effective job of dispelling the idea that primitive societies are happier and more harmonious with nature or whatever, and it's also a nice recap of anthropological trends up to the mid 90s.
