Hello
I love a fantasy./shape shifting/?historical novels that Dara Joy writes. If you have never read anything by her pick any of her books up. She has one that is a continuing story of a family and their spouses. Here are a few of her book titles. She has more but these are the ones I have read so far.

1) Rejar

2)Knight of a Trillion Stars

3)High Intensity

4) High Energy

5)Mine to Take



title numbers 1,2,3 is a continuing story of a certain family. Waiting on the next one in that series.

For the past 6 months or so I've been reading all of Terry Pratchett's Discworld stuff. I've got three books to go. Now this is my kind of fantasy!

I've been reading Robert Jordan since 1994. He's got the Wheel of Time series out right now... but if his next book doesn't pick up a bit, I might not read anymore.

Another one that is my favorite is Robin Hobb. She has 2 and 2/3's trilogies out, The Farseer Trilogy, The Liveship Traders, and the Tawney Man (2 out of three).

Both are very good, especially Robert Jordan's first 6 books.

J.R.R. Tolkien

...you mean there are others?huh.gif

Oh. OK. Them. biggrin.gif
  • Robert Howard, of the "Conan the Barabarian" NOVELS. Yes, there was Conan before The Gubernator.
  • Edgar Rice Burroughs - "Tarzan", "A Princess of Mars" and MANY others.
Of folks currently writing, my favorites are:
  • Terry Pratchett (YAY!) though I didn't much care for his latest, "Monstrous Regiment." A one-joke book.
  • Mercedes Lackey, the creator of the Valdemar books.
  • Marion Zimmer Bradley



--------------------
Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

    ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

I loved to read Steven Lawhead, especially his "Song of Albion" trilogy
- The Paradise War
- The Silver Hand
- The Endless Knot.
They are written very well; he uses the old Celtic myths and presents a very own world.

In no particular Order:

Terry Pratchett
Robin Hobb
some of MZB (darkover!!!)
David Eddings (I think he's my absolute favourite, I laughed my head off when I read his Belgariad for the first time)
Mercedes Lackey (I like the stuff she did with others, like the books about the three sisters with MZB and that other woman which I also like alot but can't remember the name of)
Cecilia Dart Thornton (wonderful story teller, her first three books were like a fairytale)
I love Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Dart but I have yet to read the rest of that trilogy and I wait for her next books to come out
and of course JRR Tolkien


Books:

The Bitterbynde Trilogy (Dart Thornton)
Kushiel's Dart
The Green Rider (Kristen Britain)
Darkover Cycle (I SO love them)
Discworld novels (Mort, All the Guard books, the weatherwax books and the Grim Reaper wink.gif )
Belgariad & Malloreon, Elenium & Tamuli (Eddings)
The Black Swan (Lackey)
The Lord of The Rings & Roverandom (soo cute!) by Tolkien

These are some of the books I read dozens of times and they never lost their magic to me...

having read a few threads here. I thought I would as if anyone here is intending to go to the next "World Con" that will be held in the UK.
I know that it will be in Glasgow (Scotland)
For those who have never heard of it it's the SF world con. (SF = Science Fiction)
At the con they have famous authors attending (a lot paying their own way), masquerade, (costuming) Workshops, Craft Halls, etc.
If many people from this forum are going perhaps there could be a meet for members?

I'm a big Heinlein fan, tho I've always thought of his stuff in the Science Fiction genre rather than as fantasy.
