There are undoubtedly many books that take place in the San Francisco Bay Area. These happen to be some that I think are particularly good.
by Pat Murphy
Post-apocalyptic novel about San Francisco, almost makes me wish I were there in those less crowded times. An interesting thought... as you'll see, this isn't going to be the only book on this list that takes place after a general disaster. Wonder what that means...?
by Michaela Roessner
The other post-apocalypse novel... set in the South Bay. You'll never think the same way about the Winchester Mystery House... or the movie theaters next to it.
by R. A. MacAvoy
Computers and dragons... it doesn't get any better than that.
by Amy Tan
Just to prove that I do read something other than science fiction... a story of four Chinese women and their American born daughters.
by Laurie R. King
First of a series of mysteries about Kate Martinelli, a San Francisco homicide cop. I don't actually read many mysteries, but I liked these. (I also liked her Mary Russell series, but that is based on Sherlock Holmes, and has no place in this list.)
by Sheldon Siegel
Okay, so after saying I don't read mysteries often, here is another one. But I started reading these because they were written by my college roommate's husband, who used to be a mild-mannered lawyer and is now a fairly successful writer.
Recommending books so good, they'll keep you up past your bedtime. more...
