Wellcome to Dudesbooks :)

I created this site because i didn’t like amazon as a way to find new books, i wanted to be able to sort stuff with various tags and have all the big series and less known work by decades, i didn’t find this on the net so i made it myself.

With this system using the sortable library you can easily find precise things whether you’re in a mood for a weird sci-fi story, a grimdark western, a military portal fantasy or discover more wild ideas like, vampires in space or a zombies novel in victorian england for exemple.
( please be patient it’s big and take a few seconds to load the first time )

Dudesbooks is dedicated to men’s adventures (thus the name), fantasy, science-fiction and urban fantasy with a focus on the more “pulpish” varieties like sword and sorcery, space adventures, weirdwest stories, hardboiled detectives, cyberpunk, noir fictions, post apo ect… as well as historical and military fictions
The library is curated to filter out the recent tsunami of romance book in many genres (and i’m currently working on several litrpg categories so i can add some without having them mixed with the rest like on amazon)

All the books on the site including the old stuff are available on kindle (with links) and often in audiobooks too
There is also a tag to find recent novels and debuting authors

I’ll also try to publish news about relevant release by indies and big author on this page, It started as a personal project to help me find my next book, obviously i have not read all the 1500+ series and novels on the site so if you think one deserve a specific tag and doesn’t have it or have any suggestion about new books or tags don’t hesitate to come on the forum.
