The only thing I didn't like about the dragonlance series were the 'other books' written of the same characters. They never appealed to me and seemed to have lost a lot of the great characted development made in the trilogy.
As for favorites. I love Tom Clancy I have read all of his books and expecially enjoy his timeline when 'Clark' was an operative.
Jrr Tolkien, Jordan for fantasy. Although Jordan is just taking too damn long to bother anymore.
I also love sci fi. LRon Hubbard has some incredible insight into society (no I am not a scientologist). Asimov and any number of short story writers.
Originally posted by platinum On top of my list is Robin Cook, great author, write medical thrillers. Ummmmm, and i really like michael Chriton WOAH and also Matthew Riely... wow he wrote Ice Station and The Temple, GREAT novels, but don't attempt them if you dont like books thicker than 10cm
Dont mind the odd Tom Clancy Book, and terrance ***** (writes DR. Who ) and of course that Flemming guy that writes the James Bond Books.
If you like Robin Cook try patricia cornwell. I enjoy both authors and they have similar 'genres'.

you're right there for the most part... but there're some good ones too like Kindred Spirits (the one on Tanis and Flint) and a few others i can't quite recall...
and like i said some other books not on the main characters were very intriguing... like the Draconian Measures series...
Simple: C.S. Lewis. Rowling would have to come in second...as amazing as LOTR has been for me so far, it doesn't hold my attention the same way that the Potter series can...seeing as how I'm not a linguist, or a historian.

hmm a DM... i never actually got to play any D&D PnP games because there never was a decent fan base where i lived... i did play Battletech PnP for awhile and it was great...
I played just about every game (within reason) up until around 5 years ago. I would still play because I love the creativity involved. However living in party town canada not too many people are interested.
