Also just finished Gardens of the Moon... was ok, 2nd half was definitely better than the first. Are the rest of the books in the series any better? I'm now curious to see what happens but not sure if it's worth the read.

Only read about half the thread, did anyone mention Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone by Gregory Keyes?

It's in a vein with Ice and Fire, but not as dark or as involved in general. Plus its only 4 books and has an actual conclusion (which I haven't yet reached).

Pretty good stuff.

Most anything R.A. Salvatore, DragonLance Chronicles, The Shannara books by Terry Brooks.

And the first sci-fi/fantasy series I ever read, "The Maztica Trilogy" by Douglas Niles. Nothing like the above books mentioned, but also not on the same level of awesomeness, but still a great read.

No Man's World: Black Hand Gang by Pat Kelleher.

Nothing too serious with this one. It's billed as "Noir-Sci-Fi" and feels a fair bit like old 50s-style sci-fi. Take a bunch of WWI British troops in the middle of fighting Germans and have them transported to an alien planet. Pretty fun stuff if you're looking for a light read.

Oh hey, I almost missed this.

Finish that, IMMEDIATELY read Gust Front. He learned a LOT writing Hymn, and Gust Front is a massive improvement. Best book in the series, he's gone kind of wierd and preachy on us since then.

You really have to preffice that statement with, "its really deep, kinda technical, and you should read his Diamond Age or Especially his Cryptonomicon novel and see if you like that before tackling the beast that is Anathem...sp?"

Yea, say all that before recco'ing Ana.




I second the Takeshi Kovacs series also, just finished and have to ay, its great: solid action, weird, belevable tech, and fascinating world altered by the fact that everyones brain is backed up on a 'cortical stack'.
