    Glen Cook’s Glittering Stone (spoilers)

    I remember getting to the end of the BC series and encountering the Glittering Stone that can be used to travel to other worlds. It was really interesting! Seems like his different worlds may all be connected somehow. His straight fantasy worlds (excluding the Garrett PI series) seem to be very...

    Glen Cook's Instrumentalities Of The Night

    Yes another Glen Cook thread, sorry. I've read all four books and really liked them. They aren't as good as his BC books but still very fun if you're into the Crusade history during the 13th century. I'm huge into the Crusades (I have the Crusader cross tattooed on my arm.) and was super...

    Glen Cook's Dread Empire

    anyone into this series? The Black Company is one of my all time favorite series. I also really enjoyed his Instrumentalities Of The Night series. Now I'm onto Dream Empire, seems right up my ally. Sadly the first book was largely forgettable. I barely remember any of it. Some things seemed...

    Different fantasy worlds that mix well.

    So what are some fantasy books that mesh well together? I mean even though the author is different but the tone, style, lore, and world are so similar it reads like another adventure taking place in a faraway land but the is in fact the same world. If I had to give an example it'd be; Poul...

    Deryni

    So I'm about to finish book two; Deryni Checkmate. So far it's pretty good. Nothing that's really hooked me though. Main reason I got into this series is because of the medieval fantasy setting. Call me lame but medieval fantasy featuring knights and courtly intrigue is my favorite fantasy...

    What do you consider the classics of fantasy?

    So if we had to make a list of the classics of fantasy which books would you include on the list? What would be the start date and cutoff date? I guess we could start with around the time Hobbit was released. Where would we stop though? The 1960s? 1970s? Heck even the 1980s? I guess if I had...

    A Wizard Of Earthsea, don't understand the hype

    I'm going to post my review here, and please tell me what all of you think of this legendary series. What am I missing? Why did I find it so unenjoyable? This book was extremely difficult to finish. I listened to it on my flight from china to LAX. The reader did a great job, Harlan Ellison I...

    Greek/Roman-esque fantasy

    Ok so right now I'm reading/listening to Tomas Harlan Oath Of Empires, and I'm having a bit of trouble staying with it. It could be the reader, I'm not sure. It's a old cassette rip to boot.

    A little help please

    Was reading an article but can't seem to find it. It was an arrival suggesting which books to read while waiting for ASOIAF to come out. I remember reading it was something about people living in a gated/guarded community where bloodthirsty demons roam outside killing all they come across...

    Semi new to the genre, thoughts so far...

    Ok I've only been seriously reading fantasy fiction for the past couple years. I'm beyond addicted and I love it! Some books just don't do it for me. Even though they were so highly regarded. I'll list all the books I've read and give my thoughts. Maybe some of the experts here can help me...
