    Walter Moers - Princess Insomnia?

    I've only read two books of his (13 1/2 LIves of Bluebear and Rumo and His Miraculous Adventures), but I loved both of them. I have a couple more of his books sitting on my kindle that I really need to get back to. I read them in English, btw.

    Iain M. Banks' Culture books - cont.

    I have only read the first 3 Culture books, but I thought they ranged from good (Consider) to incredible (Use of Weapons). I've also his non-Culture book, The Algebraist, which I thought was poop.

    The Richard Morgan Thread III

    I imagine that the dude on dude nature of the sex might turn some people off. Didn't bother me, but Ringel really loves sucking cock. Great series though. I thought the third book was the best one too.
  6. It was the author of the Vampire Diaries book series. She got booted from her own book series and replaced with ghost writers. She decided to self publish Vampire Diaries fan fiction on Amazon to continue her version of the series.

    Your most-read authors

    But Honor's poop probably smells like chocolate. I gave up on Weber once some dude's wife was like "Go ahead, bone Honor, she's so awesome."

    Your most-read authors

    By # of books, I'd guess that David Gemmell tops my list. I've read everything he wrote, even his one contemporary novel. By page count, I think Alexandre Dumas probably tops the list. I've read every book of his that's been translated into English that I could find. Jack Vance and Poul Anderson are probably pretty high up there too, as I've read at least 20 books by both of them.
  9. Again, just like David Gemmell.
  10. To me, Kearney is like David Gemmell 2.0, which is just about the best thing I could possibly think about a fantasy author.

  12. Not being a dick.  I just hate it when people feel the need to correct shit that's already right - It's not necessary.  Sorry if you take that as me being a dick.
