    I’ve not read this author yet so perhaps this could be a good starting point. I love the sound of this one.

    Well, at least it’s not a Forgotten Realms or Star Wars book, right?
    Actually, I don’t know that I’ve ever read anything by him that wasn’t in either of those two franchises…

  3. This is an author whose name I’ve seen mentioned often, but I’ve never read anything by him. This might very well be my… entry level book 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!
