    So having just read “the man in the rubber mask”, and exhausted the red dwarf novels (with several reads each), I was wondering what to read next. I see Robert has done a few novels and wondered if anyone had read any and what their thoughts were? Would love a new Dwarf novel but think one by Robert might be quite interesting.

    Opinions appreciated (without spoilers) please.

    I've not tried any of Robert's novels. However, I would highly recommend his Thin He Was And Thilthy-Haired, which is my favourite autobiography of all time. It gives a fascinating account of his teenage years living in communes.

    If you are looking some great Red Dwarf Literature, forum user @Eddiebadassdavis has some works of art you may be interested in.

    There doesn’t seem to be many references to the audio books on the site. I really enjoyed them all, even have the unabridged versions. Think last human Is not the best book, but makes a great audiobook. Strange how that works sometimes. Still think my favourite is the novel of backwards though.

    I've heard just the parts on DVDs and they're very good.
    It's interesting that the first two novels are read by Chris Barrie, Last Human by Craig Charles and for Backwards Rob Grant had to do it himself.
