I must have missed this, although I'll admit I wasn't paying to much attention to it. I saw all the excitement that book five was out, and after a while picked up books 2-5 (I read 1 when it first ca ...

Awesome! GGK is by far my favorite author. I agree Chinese history isn't as interesting to me as some of this other books, but still very well done.

It's a pretty good series, but I always liked his Brotherhood of War better. Maybe because it covered a much greater length of time instead of being focused completely on WWII. Good books though.

I voted for Steven Brust - The Khaavren Romances , which are pretty good. Although if you haven't read them I'd read his origional series in that universe first, those are better imo.

Amazon just changed the publication date to Febuary of 2011. I'll assume they mean 2012. His wiki page lists it as March 2012. So I guess it's still scheduled to show up at some point. Good books, ...

I read it, thought it was pretty good. Not great as some of his others, but for me that was based on the Oriental setting of the book. Never enjoyed that setting as much as European. Like all his b ...

If you like the Fionavar Tapestry, read Ysable. Different, modern, but has a few of the same characters (Kate and Dave) show up.

I've loved all of his books with the exceptio ...
