    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.

    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'.

    And they aren't huge either

    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...

    I enjoyed the draconian series strictly from a dm's view . I used to run d&d games wayyy back and I liked that series to get a feeling of how the draconians were. But yes is was still a decent series.

    All Michael Chricton books.

    I just read a book called "Gravity" by Tess Gerritsen which is on the level of Chricton if anyone wants to read it. It's a bit like the Anromeda Strain book but takes place on the Space Shuttle.

    I like the Incarnations of Immortality series from Piers Anthony.

    The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

    Anyone said Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy yet?

    Oh, I'm a Tom Clancy and John Grisham fan, too

    I think i've read one of her books before... if our library was a bit better here i'd probably go look I think i've read all the books there (hehe, seriously).

    I don't mind tom clancey, and a book that i read recently called "hammer heads" (not by TC), really enjoyed that

    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.

    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.

    Well where I used to live it wasn't bad. I am sure there are people out here who might enjoy those types of thing but most of this town (with the exception of a few) are ski and snowboard bums.
