Looking to start a new fantasy (sword & spell type) or sci-fi novel/series. I've read and loved a lot of previous recommendations from TW:

A song of ice & fire series (wtf is the next book?)
name of the wind
ender's game
Best Served Cold
Dune
Most everything by R.A. Salvatore

What else out there is worth a read? It's hard to pick from the 100's of random authors.

Dresden Files - I'm up to book 9 I think now and I've read through them pretty quickly. First book is called Storm Front.

I've always heard good things about the Wheel of Time series but never actually read it myself.

David Weber looks exactly like I imagined he would look:

Also his scifi/fantasy blend series that starts with Off Armageddon Reef is pretty good, too.

From what I've seen of sci-fi/fantas writers they pretty much all look like that.

I concur. I was even thinking about re-reading them.

The author's Codex Alera books are also decent.


You can also read a Dresden File short story for free.

Stuff by Robert Stanek is ****ing awesome.

Robert Stanek - The Official Web Site of Fantasy Author Robert Stanek

I was a big Salvatore fan until I found his stuff. A step up IMHO

I'd recommend the other Joe Abercrombie First Law books (he wrote Best Served Cold). I read a neat book called Heroes Die that is a pretty good sci fi/fantasy hybrid. I'm on the sequel now but it's definitely a step down.

Piling on the Malazan. I've sadly only gotten the first one done so far but really enjoyed it. I look forward to getting deeper into it.

Scott Lynch - The Lies of Locke Lamora
Jeff Somers - The Electric Church
Stan Nicholls - Orcs

All of them are great, and more than one book if you like series.
