LOL. Well I could do without the beard, but bring on a nicely proportioned manly male.sheik rock said:The worst part is, every girl I know who likes fantasy would way rather watch manly bearded guy than a twink who won't put a shirt on. Who were they trying to appeal to?
The worst for names is Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series. sooooo many names, argh. even the dramatis personnae at the start barely helps.praktik said:To be honest I really liked the pacing of the first one. What I found toughest were the names - there were so many! And people had their house name AND their nicknames you had to remember ("The Mountain that Rides", "The Hound", etc)...

Is there any word on Robert Jordan's last? I know people were taking up the reigns, but is there a timeline?
for me it was all about 'choose your own adventure' and any 'dr who' books i could get my hands on. i kinda liked piers anthony too. it's been so long i vaguely remember any of these works with any great detail.Colm said:I saw these Goodkind books while I was scouring Chapters yesterday for ASOS & AFFC. Are they any good?
I loved this series as a kid:

When will it be published?
The manuscript for A Memory of Light is expected to be completed by December, 2008. From there it will undergo further editing and preparation. It is currently expected to be published in the Fall of 2009. If this timeframe changes, we will report it here on the website.
Wow, it'll be the end of quite an epic series. It definitely had its low points (friggin' Mat and his caravan crap), but I must've pounded through six or seven books in a consecutively, with some of the most exciting fantasy scenes ever.Eclectic said:
I thought that book seemed awesome for the first 50 or so pages, it takes a really weak turn about halfway through the book though, and turned me off the series.praktik said:Just starting David Farland's "The Runelords" series now and 50 pages in it looks very promising!!
That was made into a Sci-Fi series a few years ago. I haven't read the books or watched the show, but it's been on my list of "things to do", so with your recommendations...Eclectic said:Jim Butcher's "The Dreseden Files" series has given me faith in the Fantasy genre all over again.
If you haven't read it yet......go now.
