I gave up on Jordan after the 1st book.

Oh, we've talked about Martin before. He's great, wish he was a little more prolific, but, the quality makes up for the lack of quantity.

There's a slew of new stuff out there in the fantasy/sci-fi genre....I should PM you some of the authors I've "discovered" over the past year or so, once all my books are unpacked.

No, never heard of it. Should I?

I got a dope book lined up next: The First Word. It's about the search for the origin of language. I love that shit. I totally geeked out in Scotland - the tour guide started talking about some word and it's Latin root and that was awesome. We had a nice little conversation of word origins and all that. My family looked at me funny. My wife shuts down when I do that - like she just sighs and walks away, lol. I need a job that will let me talk about word origins. You got one?

My job explores the origins of the screen pass or the jump shot...which is fun...but limiting.

I'm with you, I'm a word geek. In grade school, I used to memorize prefixes and suffixes to help me better understand words....and, yeah, Etymology is fascinating, at least to me.

Should you have heard of that series? Maybe. Should you read it? I think so. The main character is very much an anti-hero....hard to like him, actually....but the books are great.

Did you watch Firefly? That show was great. I didn't watch it when it was on, but I got the DVDs and I saw Serenity.

Joss Whedon is awesome.

I'll check out that dude. Sounds good. I like the anti-hero angle.

I saw Serenity, but never watched the series. I want to. I've been told to check out Babylon 5, that it improved greatly after the 1st season and was actually compelling. Yeah, check the Covenant Series out, you might like it.

I watched S1 of B5 and it was so cheesy and awful, but I had to watch it. I have S2 downloaded, but never watched it.

I was just reading up on Space Moon. Nice.

from like an hour ago: I think on Jordan I got book 8, maybe? All I know if one time I went to the bookstore and I couldn't remember which books I had read, so Istarted flipping through them and was like, "wait.....every book is exactly the same..." so I stopped with that. He started off awesome though - books 2-4 or 5 were great. I read them all in a summer, I think.

Good morning

I just got home work and I'm not feeling well

I'm trying to decide should I go to bed or should I just stay up until I vomit

Covenant series rocks

She's more fantasy, but I'd highly recommend Melanie Rawn - the Dragon Prince and Dragon Star trilogies (related but you can read them separately), and the Exiles trilogy (though I've been waiting at least 8 years now for book 3!)

Asimov too - though I've only read the Robots novels and all but the last one of the Foundation series

I think I read the first Foundation book, maybe? Is that the one where humans moved to another planet cause Earth was ruined, or something? It was a loooong time ago. I remember spaceships.
