    No, black prism is brent weeks. His only other books are the NightAngel trilogy. NightAngel (hence the user name) is one of the best series i have ever read... and i have read a sh*t ton of stuff

    Ahhh right. I knew I recognised the name from somewhere. I still need to read the Night Angel books too :p

    My to-read list is pretty massive right now.... Shouldn't have bought a kindle :p

    Been wanting one, although the sony e reader seems to have the most functionality. Anyways i just use my phone, works good enough i suppose. And you should bump NA up on your list, i promise you won't regret it, lol.
    Now if we only had our own sub-forum to discuss in greater detail all these books:rolleyes:

    I'm big into the Tom Clancy stuff.

    I read the entire netforce series (11books?) and I loved every book. My favorite so far to this day despite reading them several years back.

    The Warded Man was really really good, but I'm not far enough into The Black Prism to decide yet. If it is anything like his previous work it's going to be a tough call.

    I have an idea. It goes: "Egwene tugged her braid," "Nynaeve crossed her arms under her breasts," and "____ smoothed her skirt." Repeat--tug braid--this about--smooth skirt--fifty times a chapter--cross arms--and you've got--tug braid--Waste of--tug braid--Time. I'm surprised anyone can get through that sludge without throwing up or consigning the book to the nearest fire.

    A book subforum would be nice. So would a musician forum.

    Um... this is our book sub-forum and music sub-forum is probably all you'll see. Although you never know, create a thread in the suggestions section and garner some support. Thats how I (with roze's help) got enough people to chime in and make this happen.

    I love zombies. I love Jedis. This sounds like a formula for awesomeness!

    Is Death Troopers any good?

    Yes, definitely a nice avatar. May you never change it--or, if you do, may you replace it with something equally beautiful.

    Haven't got around to reading it yet, just tried reading Crosscurrent and had to stop. Its from an author that i am unfamiliar with and he didn't do much to draw me in. (to be fair i was at work and only got 10 pages into it) First time i ever did that with a Star Wars book.
    Death Troopers sounded like a really good story, i own it so will be reading it shortly.

    Thanks Xyro, but this is nothing more than another rumour. I don't take the words of the editors as concrete fact. GRRM has said nothing about the book being completed on his blog. A couple more chapters mean very little as it could take him up to a year to finish it, lol. He is known to be a perfectionist and he has redone a whole book when it was closed to completion. Call me skeptical, but I won't believe it until I have the book in my hand. At this point in the fandom, I won't be reading any of his work until he's completed the series.

    Can't believe I forgot to mention Frank Herbert's Dune! An excellent sci-fi book and a pretty good series as well.

    Sounds like the up and coming Patrick Rothfuss, :rolleyes:

    Old school favorites:
    David Eddings; Belgariad, Mallorean, The Elenium, The Tamuli
    Piers Anthony; Loved Xanth growing up and all 30 (last i checked, though i've only read 25 of them) hold a special place in my heart. First 12 or so are great for all ages but increasingly kid oriented imo nowadays
    Hitchhikers Guide - Douglas 'Da Man' Adams, lol

    Sorry, I didn't really read past the first few lines of the article :p

    I guess I should hold off on starting that series then.

    I read "Game of Thrones" in The Song of Ice and Fire series and really enjoyed it. I started the second book, but for some reason just could not get into it...
