Long ago there was something in me, but now that thing is gone,
I cannot cry, I cannot care, that thing will come back no more.

George RR martin is frankly awsome and I would well recommend his series The Game of Thrones, it is the best fantasy series I have read.

I read. I read almost anything. I have read a lot of the oldschool scifi authors. I have read a rather wide selection of fantasy. I have read Shakespeare (voluntarily). I have read the Bible. I read the dictionary once because it was there. I've even read a romance novel or two :blush:. I read; It's what I do.
But at the moment I'm totally hooked on David Gemmell. I've read all his books at least 3 times, and I'm re-reading them again.
I once got in trouble from my english teacher for reading more books than the rest of the whole class put together, and they were all thicker books than the rest of the class had been reading.

If you have not read Douglas Adams "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series, then how is it you can sleep at night.
I highly recommend it. It is hysterical and witty. Great for Science Fiction and Comical fans. AWWW YEAH!
I feel that list is pretty limited, I'm terrible with Authors and Artist, I listen to the radio and read a lot of books from the library, I don't remember the authors or names, I just enjoy it.
For example, where is Mercedes Lackey? AMAZING stuff.

Though not quite as dedicated as mpdscott, I do read an awful lot, I read a good 40 someodd books last summer while at work and on average can go through at least a book a week, one day if I'm really into it. As for authors and even subject, I'm partial to fantasy of all kinds as well as sci-fi, but I'll gladly read other things as well. I can't say I've read the dictionairy, but I've read things like Dante's inferno and piles of other old texts simply out of interest. throw something at me and chances are I'll read it, unless I find it frightfully boing and poorly written, then expect to have it thrown back.

personally i love dan brown's work ive read every book.
i read first 2 books in the game of thrones but they seemed like pseudo-porn novels because of all the... ahhh mmmm..... colorful shall we say (and numerous) sex scenes:shifty:
if trekkies love star trek and foodies love food. if i love dan brown books does that make me a brownie?:rolleyes:

I love anything Asimov related. Foundation is amazing and so are his numerous short stories.
Nightfall and The Last Question are amazing. The concept of Multivac is getting more and more realistic too.
And all this before the invention of the pocket Calculator?! He truly is one of the Grandfathers of Scifi.
I'd reccommend Asimov to anyone. He can tell any story and make it easy understandable with some great plot twists.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is also a must read for anyone. Along the same lines as Terry Pratchet but in the Sci-Fi world. Great stuff!

When I say jump you don't ask me 'How high?' maggot! You jump!
Going to have to go with Orson Scott Card. I've re-read the ender seris who knows how many times, same with "a planet called treason"(my personal favorite). The Alvin Maker series and the Homecoming series are excellent reads as well. I'd highly recommend any of them, Treason above the rest.
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
lots of things, Jim Dodge is a brilliant author!
