Updated:

on the home page is a bunch of links on the left of the screen to the top stories, there's a few hundred there. After that look at the Favourite stories of your favourite authors for more.

edit to add: I could just say check out all my stories, but you don't say what types you want.

Define "amazing stories" and then read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Perhaps amazing stories are ones that involve action in a maze? Or perhaps one of the characters is named Grace, as in the song, Amazing Grace?

Reminds me of my trying to figure where to insert it when losing my virginity.

It is all personal taste.
Arlene and Jeff has had negative comment here on the grounds of boredom.
John Carter (and most of the rest of the series) didn't have too much (detailed) sex which you seem to consider necessary; I would think Ed Biggers would be a better choice on those requirements
The other two I haven't read.
If you want action and sex together in one story consider the stories including Chuck Johnson in Florida Friends

remarcsd

The Preacher Man by Hammingbyrd. Not a lot of sex and what there is is pretty tame, but a highly readable story in a unique setting.

Aftermath by Al Steiner ranks right up there with the best at SOL.

I find myself rereading 'Second Time Around' by Charlie Foxtrot a lot.
I like to reread the section of 'John Carter' where he proves cold fusion. 'William Redman Carter' is another I reread.
All three of Refusenik's stories.
Believe it or not, the Lady in Red stories. :=)
'A Fresh Start' and 'Grim Reaper' by rlfj.
'A Charmed Life' by The Outsider.
I could go on, but this is enough to stimulate discussion.

@odundairo77

I agree that this is a personal decision, but if you're looking for some of MY favorites, here they are:

"Winning Numbers" by Lazlong

"Annie and the Junkman" by UncaD

Almost every story by Oyster50, particularly in the "Smart Girl" series

Anything by A.A. Nemo

Anything by Tedbiker

Almost anything by Telephoneman

I tend to enjoy monogamous romantic stories more than others, but I will read them, depending on my mood. I have some others, but this should get you started.

I'll also mention one of my favourites here: Deja Vu Ascendancy which I'm rereading right now, and have read at least five times already.

Before beginning this exceptionally long story, I strongly advise reading at least the first review, the most recent one, before you commit to reading well over 400 chapters. One of the reviews says its the length of 40 normal novels.

No matter how long Deja Vu Ascendancy is, it's worth reading.
But - be prepared to spent too much time reading it - days and nights :D

I once did a wordcount and found it was bigger than War and Peace, the complete works of Shakespeare and all the Harry Potter books - all together. There was a fourth, traditionally 'big', book/series included in my sum but I can't remember what it was, possibly the bible? - sort-of relevant, since the main character in DVA describes the story as his version of Genesis.

What's amazing is to read & compare the contradictions. I concede: It's mildly entertaining high fantasy.

In fact, every story of Lazlo's rated 9.00 or more (there are 11 or 12) will keep you going for a couple of weeks. But don't stop there. A bunch of those above 7.50 also rate repeat reading. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

JohnBobMead

I'll second the recommendations for Ted Biker, Telephoneman, Wes Boyd, and Lazlo Zalezac.

I'll add one for WTSman, and Carny22. All of theirs I've reread numerous times, although it's a pity Carny22 only posted one story, but it's _really_ good.

Barbar's Bec series. It's what i go to when I'm feeling at my worst, or dealing with depression.

Yes. Absolutely. Best "What if?" expansion of its genre. ETA: Including most realistic given the premise, with the exception noted below.

(Despite the grotesquely over-the-top female villain, but then maybe Steiner was going for parody?)

Agreed. So over-the-top that it actually detracted from the story. The male leader the preceded her was her male counterpart, though. But absent those hiccups, great story.

We know she's bad from the first moment when she addresses the sister of the brother-sister pair as "Little Missy." Who ever says that, anyway?

I'd rank Steiner's "Doing It All Over" right up there as well. Among other things, the protagonist discovers some things can't be corrected, even with a do-over.

Yea. I agree, even going so far as to say it might be the better of the two. Even if they're rated the same. Just finished reading it again.

Wheezer

I'm in the middle of re-reading Uncle Jim's Magic Ink stories I & II. For some reason, I never read III & IV so thought I'd better refresh my memory.

moredrowsy

I reread some of the Lubrican's older stories mostly because his commentaries on incest or harem plot devices are just downright silly and hilarious. His stories are one of the few where I physically laugh out loud. Good stuff. (Although his new stories are lacking the comedy aspect these days...)

Another story which I often find myself rereading a lot is The Private by Random Writings
https://storiesonline.net/s/69860/the-private
Good action and story, slow burn romantic subplot, and a well written prose.

OVERBOARD! by HandyMan
https://storiesonline.net/s/75245/overboard
One of the first few stories I read on storiesonline. It has its issues but I still reread it sometimes.

A Bettered Life by Michael Lindgren
https://storiesonline.net/s/50816/a-bettered-life

@Anomandaris

I second your nomination of The Bec Series by BarBar. To me, it's the most insightful look into the mind of a young girl since "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. I read that one in the early fifties and still remember it like I read it yesterday! There are a lot of similarities between Bec and Francie but even more differences. If you haven't read it, put it high on the list of "must reads" that you garner from this thread.

I wholeheartedly agree on your list.

I would agree with most of the suggestions above. If you take a peak at the Clitorides Awards archives - which includes many of the above suggestions, don't restrict yourself to the winners - I have found some finalists to be as if not more enjoyable than the eventual winners.

Darian Wolfe

@madnige

I enjoyed reading it but it took every spare moment for over two months. Lol. I wanted to strangle Julie more than once just to get her to shut up as her "Mark is wonderful" monologues became tiresome.

I'll probably dip into it from time to time but I don't feel I have enough effective lifespan left to afford to be able to give it another full read. (We're really not kidding when we say it's MASSIVE.) Still, it's an awesome tale with a lot of tail. Sorry, it early in the morning and I just had to go there. Anyhow, there's my two pennies.

I don't know why he hasn't put it out or posted it, but back in 2013 he did revise DVA which cut back on a lot of that and the technical stuff while he made it an easier story to read. I was helping him edit the revised version when he went out of contact with about 10% of the story left to do.

Damn, I also love that story. I should really add it to my favorites, although I agree, some things became a bit tiresome after yet another 100k words. However, the humor was sensational and the dubious ethics of the 'we are very moral' people hilarious; some of the best characters I ever enjoyed reading about.

Replies:   Darian Wolfe

@Ernest Bywater

Wasn't he trying to publish the revised version?

I only read 5% or so and it is on my read list, I was a bit turned off at the time where he got his girlfriend. I am not fluff-averse but the whole "he is so wonderful and understands woman" over-the-top descriptions gave me a toothache and I dropped it at that time because I had other great works on the horizon (I think it was AWLL that i tested for 2 to 3 chapters at that time and just switched to that story.)

I will read DVA another time, I held up for the chance of the revised edition.

Ernest Bywater

@sunkuwan

Wasn't he trying to publish the revised version?


Ayep, that's why the big task of the editing. He broke it down into a number of books and we were working on the last book when he stopped. I suspect a hitch developed with the publisher he chose. Not sure. I hope he replaces the original with the revised if he doesn't get it properly published, because it is a better read.

What was it Julie's brother said/implied "We don't pull a gun on people because they won't have sex with us." That scene made me roll.

Wow! JoyR, I just noticed this and hope that you are still around to see my reply. Thanks for the inclusion in this list of tremendous authors (all who have and continue to enjoy their stories).

odundairo77, In addition to JoyR's strong suggestions (except for one self-serving one), I would suggest pretty much anything by (in no particular order as well):

Argon
Don Lockwood
Crumbly Writer
rlfj
Sage Mullins
Refusnik
Al Steiner
Ryan Sylander
Xalir
Ernest Bywater
Colt45
Texrep
Coaster2
Kafir
Wes Boyd
dotB
TedBiker
Lazlong
Lazlo Zalezac
Douglas Fox

The above authors all make a point to develop characters worthy of the interesting and/or complex plots that they are thrown into.

I know that there are other fine authors I have heard good things about but haven't gotten around to reading (including Michael Loucks) or I have forgotten to mention.

Plenty of great stories on SOL.
