Thanks... it's tough to decide. I like non-SciFi stuff, but there is so much crap out there. I just finished Outworld, and while it was a decent novel, the whole modernish feel to it, and the VR, was just a little to odd and didn't really absorb me.

I've treid Goodkind, and didn't like his writting style. I am now reading The Outstretched Shadow by Mercedes Lackey and Jame Mallory, and I like it. However, it is a new series and the next ones probably are going to take more time to write than it will to read.

I loathe Robert Jordan, not figuring that out until after 3 wheel of time books...blah

I read the lord of the rings... decent

Morgaine Saga sounds strange

I will check out the rest.

"A Song of Ice and Fire" is an absolute must-read. I don't know anybody who's read it and didn't like it.

Found two threads about it here:
