Well, I love his work, but if you started and stopped, perhaps his style is not to your liking. He's a challenging writer, so, it's sometimes harder work than reading an Eddings. But it's so very worth it. He's amazingly talented and I consider him the best author in his field.

How about Stephen Donaldson? Ursula LeGuin? Dan Simmons? China Meiville?

I'll have to give him another try then...

I read a couple of Donaldson's "Thomas The Covenant" series but I couldn’t get into them and I lost interest.

I'm not familiar with the other authors you mentioned.

So that's what Beav is doing today.

He's forgetting the most important part, though.

Our tastes might be slightly off. I liked the Covenant series a lot.

Eh.

We'll always have Martin. Looking forward to the Fire and Ice book.

As am I, I love the fact the Martin has no problem killing off characters... It makes for a genuinely exciting read...

This is my complaint with someone like Eddings, I really enjoyed The Belgariad and The Malloreon series but there was never any real danger to any of the main characters...

Eddings was just so blah to me, Tolkien light. Same with Jordan, again, in my opinion.

Martin's stuff feels gritty. And, yes, once he kills off the King in the first book, you know that anything can go down.

Try Wolfe one more time.

I should have edited that - to some of "us" girls, including me, so the whole stripping part is completely open ended
