Read The Shephard's Crown this weekend.

The last Tiffany Aching book. The last Granny Weatherwax book. The last Discworld book. The last Pratchett book. Sad

Now I'm reading Unseen Academicals, the last Wizards book.

Troy: Lord of the Silver Bow, the first in Gemmel's Troy trilogy. (Best retelling of the Trojan wars ever.)

Gemmel's Troy: Shield of Thunder.

(The problem with Gemmel, like Pratchett, is once you get started it's hard to stop. I will probably re-read his Rigante series after this.)

Troy: Fall Of Kings., the last Troy book. And the last David Gemmell book for that matter, as he died while finalising it.

What I really like about Gemmell's version of Troy is that he worked backwards from the myths, to produce a world where you can see the seed of those myths in the realistic actions the characters take.

Anyway, reading Sword In The Storm now, the first in his "Rigante" series.

Picked up a Dragonlance series that's relatively new...never read / heard of them before, "The War of Souls."

Busy on book 1, Dragons of a Fallen Sun.

Am reading Stephen Donaldson's fantasy picks Strange Dreams - never read these short stories before. Next is the Broken God and a launch into the Requiem for Homo Sapiens, the David Zindell epic.

Will this be a reread of Zindell?

No this is a first reading Very Happy I have read Neverness, but that's it. Although Neverness certainly inspired me to rush out and pursue the rest of the books.

Good decision. Among my top several favorites.

There just never seems to be enough time to catch up on the amount of books that need to be read. Zindell has been on my list for some time but it takes effort to start - but once you start, it's impossible to stop! So I delayed the start with the Donaldson short stories, but now there's nothing stopping this road. Very Happy
