Re: Silvanus' reading suggestions.

While I agree Sword has a very strong LOTR influence, his later writings show him finding his own way. There wasn't a lot of writers in the speculative fantasy genre when he wrote Sword and he was one of the first to show that after Tolkien there was a market for those types of books and writers. M...

Re: Silvanus' reading suggestions.

Dan Brown is a good read with a fast paced story. If you like that type of pacing, John Grisham is another writer who writes stories that pull you into the action almost from the first page and keeps the storyline moving. As far as fantasy suggestions, I'd like to suggest a couple of authors to the...

I thought so too! It was a great way to put stuff together, he makes it really believable, doesn't he?

Yup. The one that's about 75 miles north of you, I'd wager? :mrgreen:

Re: Silvanus' reading suggestions.

<chuckles> That's about a quarter of what I own. And just so long as you know, some of those single books aren't sci-fi or fantasy... 1984, White Fang is borderline fantasy, Angels and Demons,and Da Vinci Code, aren't. Letters from Earth, is just fun... If you're going for anything, my ULTIMATE reco...

What hasn't come true? Individual backpacks that can fly us around haven't, as far as I know. I guess you don't read everything here at SV then...
