I would like to see an SF series in which India dominates or is a leading nation as humanity moves out into space. It would be a refreshing variation on the old trope where mostly or even ONLY people of European descent make it into the future. Yes, I know things are changing but more work needs to be done in overthrowing the John Campbell stereotype where the only Nordic ideal inherits the future.

1. Immortals of Melhua.

2. The Secret of the Nagas.

They make great reading and spell binding.
These look really good! I can't seem to find them in ebook though, are they only available in dead tree?

There was a really good Sci-fi/Fantasy(Djins and Ai) short story collection that are loosely related. Probably the best book I've read recently.

Yeah, at one point in time I'd worked up a Star Trek story which had as its backstory a documentation of genocides during the eugenics wars which resulted in a racial distribution on earth which matched that which was seen in the cast. Never got past a rough outline unfortunately.

There is a great fantasy style retelling of the Ramayana by the Indian writer Ashok K. Banker. The first volume is called "Prince of Ayodhya". The whole series comes to 6 or 7 volumes but the first volume is absolutely great. Gods and demons, magic, love, evil plots, betrayal, loyalty, everything you need in a great fantasy saga.
I read it in paper format several years ago but it is now available in eBook format too. See link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/RAMAYANA-SER...2182039&sr=8-2
Incidentally, there is also a retelling of the Welsh saga, the Mabinogion, by Evangeline Walton in 4 volumes. This too reads like a great fantasy saga.

Thanks everyone for lots of interesting suggestions, adding to my list.
I just started reading River of Gods by McDonald and so far it's pretty good.

Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed sounds like the sort of thing you are after.
