I have dug up two books by Charles Williams, War In Heaven, and All Hallows' Eve. He was a friend of C.S. Lewis' and J.R.R. Tolkien. He wrote quite a number of SciFi/Fantasy books before his rather unexpected death in 1945.

The books are interesting. But they do seem very much a part of their era. I wouldn't say that Williams wrote "timeless" classics.

Hi... I'm a newbie here!!!

My current reads at the moment include George RR Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire"... I read voraciously! Devouring books regularly. "Chronicles of Thomas Covenant" would have to be amongst my fav reads of all time! Very Happy

I just finished The Fall of Atlantis, by Marion Zimmer Bradley. Now I'm re-reading The Forest House, Lady of Avalon, and The Mists of Avalon, because while reading FoA I discovered that it is (sort of) a prequel to the others.

Did that make any sense at all? Confused

Offcentre and everyone else - sorry for the mix up with Vains eyes, he was the pinicle of the Ur-Viles work and they must have finally worked out how to do eyes. Embarassed
I've just finished The Power that Preserves and I remembered we had a thread on favorite bits from the books, I love the bit where Covenant casually walks up to the warped guard outside Fouls Creche, trying to whistle and look nonchalant, made me laugh.

Hi Danlo - I think Neverness has just been published over here in a new range of classic paperbacks (the first chronicles are also in the range - all in the same plain dark blue covers) I'd be happy to send you a copy p.m me and we can work out the details.

And welcome - have you (or anyone else) read books by G.R.R.Martin other than the 'Songs of Ice and Fire'? I would be interested in any reviews of his other work.

So much 4 my xtensive reading list! Even since I recieved that new copy of Neverness from PofA that's all I've been reading! I have, believe it of not, read the Bell Jar--but a long time ago--I knew bunches of "hippy" girls who were all reading it @ that time who started walking around in "gloomy" phases all very deeply introspective...a few were in deep depressions and a few even considered "offing" themselves after they read it--very good book, but dangerous (and this advice coming from a guy who wanted 2 cut off 2 fingers and walked around in a blue funk 4 15 years after 1st reading TCTC! Sheesh!!!). Rolling Eyes Confused Cool

The last thing SRD published was The Man Who Fought Alone, It's the 4th book in a series he's had going 4 a long time under the psuedonym of Reed Stephens (which is actually sort of his middle and 1st name twisted around)--it's the 1st book in this series he published under his real name. It's a detective/mystery series set in the real world. Fought Alone was published in 12/01.

If you want to see that big ugly vein on Danlo's forehead pop out ask him who Reed Stephens is?

You'll see what I mean if you click this link: [url=pub33.ezboard.com/fkevinswatchfrm1.showMessage?topicID=93.topic]Information on new SRD Novel in October[/url]

You can also read about SRD's Mysteries on the Reed Stephens Discussion

I thought I might venture out of the mordant's need discussion and see what is going on!I have read all 4 Otherland book and loved them.It's a while back now but I thought they were great!!!!! !Xabbu and Renie were fab.It was a bit of a slog at times but I didn't realise how attached I had got to the characters(Orlando and Sam were another two)until the last book and everything was getting wrapped up.It did remind me of "The magic far away tree"by Enid Blyton.Don't know if anyone ever read that.But at the top of the tree was a ladder into the clouds and every day there was a different land at the top!The amazing thing about Otherland was that ANYTHING could happen and you would believe it coz in VR it was possible!!!!!!It did take about 5 years to get through them all though!!!Well worth the effort!!!!Love SCOTTI

I read The Fall of Atlantis and other Marion Zimmer Bradley books, along with Foamy. Very Happy

I am reading (or re-reading, in some cases) a group of John Steinbeck books along with a reading group at Readerville.com. Last month was Cannery Row, which I enjoyed, this month is Sweet Thursday, which is good, but not as good.

I am re-reading James Joyce's Ulysses along with another Readerville group.

And I am re-reading parts of LOTR, in no particular order. Laughing

And have been re-reading TCTC, in fits and starts. :p

I've recently read 'The NeverEnding Story' by Michael Ende to my daughter, I had enjoyed it as much as she did. Has anyone else read this book?
