Interesting thoughts, KEJR. If you find the Greenwood link, I'd sure be interested in seeing it. Thanks.
I wish I could find it. Its in the "Ask Ed" thread from last year, but those threads are huge.

KEJR, under what name does Greenwood post on Candlekeep? I keep looking.

Thanks, M.

Thank you Kevin, I've always been amused to see where Wild Cards stuff shows up, from X-men to Star Trek to my roommate's sister being a fan.

You're welcome, though those two are easy to explain: Chris Claremont is one of the Wild Cards writers, and George's co-editor (and one of the main writers) is Melinda Snodgrass, who was one of the main writers and story editor for Star Trek Next Gen.

And we recently jumped Paul Cornell into the gang, one of the Dr. Who writers....

Oh I know, I just find it funny. I was introduced to Wild Cards by an old issue of X-men in the 80's where a guy on the beach is reading a Wild Cards book as Rogue, Havok, and Dazzler come on to the beach having escaped the Marauders. (Issue in the low 300's)

And for Star Trek, I wanted to call the ship in the episode 'Tin Man' 'Baby' when I first saw it. (funny, because the actor who guest starred would have made a good Dr. Tachyon.)


I believe that the following might be considerable for some kind of reading:

Tamora Pierce: well, don't get me wrong all of it is great, but I might speciafically recommend the Alanna books, though it's more for girls tan boys I might believe. Although I wouldn't call it conclusively girlish it just tends to favour female main characters.

Robert Jordan: If you read Tolkien LOTR, you NEED to read Wheel of Time (okay, maybe not NEED, but close). I was introduced recently (sadly after the authors death) and have was at the time dying with the lack of fantasy litterature I hadn't read. It very close to saved my life. I can not recommend it enough. Recently the "last book" is being published based on the notes by RJ by Brandon Sanderson. The total number of books is currently 12, but will be 14. I'll admit it's probably not something children can keep attention through. Took me quite the decisiveness to get past the first 3 chapters of book one. But then there was no getting out again. Each book is around 1000 pages +/-. It can keep even speed readers like me occupied. And really, it's almost better more fantastic and better written than Tolkien. I can't guarantee that it has a Pathfinder-feel, but I can guarantee extensive fantasy feel.

Good. I could go on forever but most other need-to-reads have been mentioned. Personally I'm not a fan but for people with humor Terry Pratchett might be recommendable. Just saying though, to me it's too fun.

I've sort of gone the other way. Feist's Riftware Saga is my favourite fantasy series, and I tend to colour most of my campaigns to somewhat resemble it. So, paradoxically, The Riftware Saga reminds me of Pathfinder. :)

While I realize Daronil just did a Necro of an almost three year old thread, I am kind of glad it happened. I had missed the thread and I got some new names to go read from it.

So Thank You Daronil.

Oops...sorry about that! I did a search for a couple of things and found some interesting threads...didn't check the dates! My bad!

Gygax's list from the DM's guide is a great start. Also I strongly suggest the Malazan Book of the Fallen, in addition to the other more recent typical choices, Jordan, Martin, etc.

No worries here. I now have a better list of novels to pick up when I have the time.

I agree with eakratz. You did me a favor because I was just thinking of buying some more books to read, my pile is almost gone.
