    That wasn't a snap at people who don't like SRD. That was a snap at people who have never heard of it and think GRRM invented dragons.

    That's because the series is old and everyone in these forums seems to be a fucking 13 year old girl.

    Glen Cooks The Black Company series

    There's a few. One in Tales of Dark Fantasy 2, one in Fearsome Journeys, and one in, oh crap, Swords and Dark Magic?

    You need to read the original trilogy for The Silver Spike to make any sense. It's been a while and I read them all in one go, but I think you'd have to at least Start with Bleak Seasons, other wise Soldier's Live would make no sense. I seem to be alone in having Water Sleeps as my least favorite of them all. Oh, and it's not over. Cook has stated he plans to write two more, a prequel and final novel set sometime after Soldier's Live. I think he's writing the prequel right now.

    The Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold

    I had a similar reaction to the first omnibus. I just don't get it. I think it may be in parts for me wanting to strangle Cordelia half the time, although I will say Barrayar is much better written plus, and forgive me if I spell this wrong, Borathi in the second book has a fascinating character arc. But oh my god, I get it, she's worried about her baby. Definitely plan to continue on to the miles books though. There is potential here.
  7. Abercrombie is Heavy Metal Fantasy. Think about it.
  8. Grimdark is never a complimentary term. It's what bloggers use when they're all pissy that their fantasy serious isn't filled with farmboys who are princes and magic swords.
  9. Publishing makes no sense. Robin Hobb's latest book has been out in , oh I think the Netherlands, but one of those countries up there, for over 6 months.
  10. I hate the term grimdark. Although, by current definitions, if you don't have tons of rape and graphic sex these days, it just isn't grimdark is it?(Or any good, by some peoples standards...) I'm intrigues enough I may have to import this. Stupid USA. Ouch. Owwwie ouch ouch. I'm still mad at all the hype Stormdancer got. Heck, is still getting. But maybe, that's a different topic.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Hey, he lists Kurtz and Erikson amongst his inspirations in the acknowledgments.Just knowing who Kurtz IS alone bumps this waaay up on my TBR pile.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    So, what name does he publish his historical fiction under? Or is that a secret?

    Never claimed my response was rational. I also didn't write 2 paragraphs of apparently logical argument before hand. But hey, keep on trolling. Also, I believe I was rushing production on the Death Star because people thought they were cliche. Either way THE DEATH STAR IS PREPARED TO FIRE. SUCK IT EARTH

    Wow, you almost had a rational and polite response til that last sentence there. Way to go.

    Glen Cooks The Black Company series

    That fact that someone just called Cook "cliche" makes me want to rush production on my new death star. And what the hell do you people consider gritty? Was there not enough demon rape for you?
