I re-read Use of Weapons. It's really a very good book, it's better upon re-reading, which I felt compelled to do because the story stayed in my mind after reading it the once. So, brilliant that I got it for $1. Then I read Consider Phlebas, which didn't do it for me, but I'm still going to track down the others.

I found Use of Weapons very disturbing, which I'm sure was the intent. The Player of Games is my favorite. I've re-read it several times.

You might also like The Madness Season by C. S. Friedman. Fictionwise has it.

Thank you! I'll track down those two.
