knarthex posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancySo, I got quite a few responses when I asked about what people listen to, now I want to know what you READ! I mean we can't always be painting minis, otherwise no one would be filling up the forums with questions and pictures....ETC I am assuming that most folks have read Tolkien, I mean can you be into fantasy minis and games without having read them???? But some others that some people might or might not have read and enjoyed or hated... Heroes Die, By Mathew Woodring Stover. I used to work for B&N, and as my staff recommendation I picked this book with the claim "If you don't like this book, I will buy it back from you out of my own pocket!" I sold a lot of books, NEVER bought one back... The jacket blurb says "Day of the Jackal meats Lord of the Rings!" Believe it! Three Hearts and Three Lions, By Poul Anderson Just finished it for the Nth time, great book Thieves World, Edited by Robert Aspirin This is a 12 book shared universe series. Chaosium Games made a multi game supplement based on the first 1 or 2 books. The cover art of the first books is AWESOME! The Eternal Champion Cycle, By Michael Moorcock This includes Erekose, Elric, Corum, Hawkmoon, etc Really something every fantasy buff should read.... MM also writes music with Blue Oyster Cult, and has /had a band called Hawkwind. A very nice British Gentleman! Name of the Wind, By Patrick Rothfuss The best new fantasy author to come along in a very long time! Read it, and the sequel, "A Wise Man's Fears" Jack of Shadows, By Roger Zelazny Most folks have read about Amber, This book is as good as the original Ambers... I will add more as I find time... Gotta paint now! 8) George
So, I recently plowed my way through the first 5 books in the graphic novel series "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" the other day, then my wife found 5 manga books (one from the creator of Azumanga Daioh, which I can't recall the name to, and 1-4 of Ultra Maniac) at the local discount store. I went through those last night. Additionally, I've been re-reading the Redwall series (by Brian Jacques). So, what are you guys reading at the moment? -Dave
