    Andrzej Sapkowski II

    Just ordered all 7 books starting with The last Wish. Might take a while as I also have other complete series like Shadowmarch, Crown of Stars, Book of Words and Shattered Sea as well on my pile. On another note I have also purchased The Witcher 3 GotY (again). Already played the vanilla game but from what I read the Add-ons seem to be magnificent. A replay might be even better after having read the books.

    Thanks everyone. Sounds good to me. How important are The last Wish and Sword of Destiny given I know most persons and their backgrounds? I would be more interested in the 5 books saga.

    So it seems all books are translated to German. Anybody read those? Thinking about going for them although prices are quite hefty here. 10 EUR for the short story books and 16 for each of the series. Or will the storylines be covered in the Netflix adaptation? thanks

    K.J. Parker (a.k.a.Tom Holt) - Part II

    Quick question: It seems that only his Fencer and his Scavenger trilogy have been translated to German. Edit: It seems that Purple and Black is also available. Is this one a better Starting entry? Which would you recommend to someone new to his stuff? I have not really seen Parker being compared to other authors. Who would be the closest ones if I were to build a peer Group?

    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    @ Nicomo: No contest in my opinion. Abraham is one of my favorite authors while the books written by Sanderson seem quite average to me. I would go even as far to say Abraham is among the top 3 Fantasy authors still alive. I am fascinated how he is able to write Scenes that suck you in without anything that spectacular Happening - just 2 guys talking to each other etc. D&C is even better than LPQ in my opinion - although the latter has already been great. Some series I like which have not been listed (or not too often) so far: Ken Scholes - Psalms of Isaac David Hair - Mage`s blood Miles Cameron - Traitor son cycle Mark T. Barnes - Echoes of Empire Col Buchanan - Heart of the World Robert Low - The Oathsworn (not Fantasy but a great and fast paced read about a group of crazy vikings) Elspeth Cooper - Wild Hunt
