If you want darkness, then Neil Gaiman and Mervyn Peake might be better than Ursula K LeGuin, although the Left Hand of Darkness would have a lot of very gloomy scenes if made into a film.

I only read "The Tombs of Atuan" and it was dark /completely dark almost all the time - Now that would probably be impossible to film Have had Neil Gaiman in my lists for a very long time. Will try it.

I'd forgotten about the Tombs, in general her books contrast inner and outer light and darkness, rather like Tolkien who uses the light in darkness quite a lot.

Neal Stephenson, Ian W Salisbury and the inimitable Terry Pratchett maybe?

Andrew

I'll have a look at them as well so many good books to read...

Sorry, I meant Ian W Sainsbury!

If I might suggest starting with Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, Ian Sainsbury's The World Walker, Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Terry Prachett's The Colour of Magic.  Good Omens is a famous collaboration.

If you are any good at the tortured concept test, then Virginia Woolf's The Waves is a great read, but only for native English speakers!
