I’m just starting Shadow & Claw: The First Half of ‘The Book of the New Sun’ by Gene Wolfe and, from the 10% or so I’ve read, I would recommend it. It got a strong recommendation from one of my favorite professors.
Duly noted. I’ve read some Wolfe in the past and enjoyed it — mind giving me the ‘elevator pitch’?
I really like Aaronovitch’s Peter Grant series, starting with Rivers of London (Midnight Riot in the U.S.). The protagonist is smart, witty and sexy. What’s not to like? An urban fantasy with a voice all its own. I think we’ll like because Aaronovitch uses language like you do – confidently.
we’ll should be you’ll…typos…
Fifth Business by Robertson Davies. FT
I’ll hunt it up!
I’ve recently started re-reading my favorite book “The Soulfourge” by Margeret Weis and Tracy Hickman. They wrote the Dragonlance series, for those who don’t know authors.
MythAdventures by Robert Lynn Asprin. Wonderful book. If you love fantasy then consider this book. It is certainly something of a different look on things. He also wrote a book called Sanctuary, which was an interesting novel with an interesting take on a city of thieves.
Hmm… Can’t think of anything else that you probably haven’t read. I mean I would point out R.A. Salvatore, but most fantasy fans know him and his writing pretty well and have a stand on if they like him or not.
I’ve read a ton of Weis and Hickman, from way back in the day. I don’t think I ever read ‘Soulforge’ .. I’ll check it out!
Definitely my favorite of all their books. It focuses on Raistlin Majere. Great book.
