I would see how that would make you think her strange... if not kind of creepy.

Fantasy

1) LOTR
2) Tiganna - Guy Gavriel Kay
3) Song if Ice and Fire - George RR Martin
4) Wheel of Time - R Jordan
5) Sarantium dualogy (Sailing to Sarantium and Lord of Emperors) Guy Gavriel Kay. This one may start slow but once it builds momentum it's edge of the seat stuff!
6) Tales of the Otori - Lian Hearn
7) The Mazalan Books - Steven Erickson (only on book two but... wow.
8) Last light of the Sun - Guy Gavriel Kay
9) Assasins Apprentice - Robin Hobb
10) The one Kingdom - Sean Russel

Sci-Fi (just cant lump both Genre's together
1) Steel Beach - John Varley
2) Paradox & Context -John Meany (haven't read the 3rd one yet. How is it?
3) The Stars My Destination - Alfred Bester
4) 2001 - 3001 Arthur C. Clark
5)The Devine Invasion - Philip K. Dick (weird!)
6) Persitence of Vision - collection of short stories by John Varley (this guy is a freak!)
7) Titan Trilogy - John Varley (did I mention he was a freak?)
8) Enders Game - Orson Scott Card
9) To Hold Infinity - John Meany
10) Golden Globe - John Varley

Need to read more Sci-Fi, many things I try out have shallow characters so when I find an author I like I stick with them. Any suggestions on who is good if you like John Varley and John Meany?

hey, the authors name is Philip K. Dick and it censored me.?. Dick is a common name, should I have called him Philip K. Richard? Dick Clark, Dick Cavet... just testing... Oh well, I prefer an overly polite post than an overly vulger one :P

:lol:

Sorry about that. All we can do is to work around the filter in such cases. Let's see. Dic&k works. There are probably other ways, too.

I decided to bump The Once and Future King off my list in favor of Ender's Game. I still like Jurassic Park enough to leave it on there, though.
