I'm new here, so I hope you don't mind my post!
I'm probably not as "major" a sci-fi/fantasy geek as most of you (though I'd love to boost my status!), but I'm definitely a geek of some degree.
I'm a fan of fantasy/sci-fi books, but I'll admit that I tend to read novels of that genre that have a more "comic" twist, i.e. Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Robert Rankin, Jasper Fforde. Could anyone reccomend any really good fantasy authors?
As for TV, I'm a "Doctor Who" fan, which can be difficult to talk about when your friends mainly watch soaps.
Thank you for the reply - I'll be sure to check those books out!
That's pretty impressive necromancy you just performed there, Kerr Avon.
Things have been pretty quiet on the Sci-Fi/Fantasy front for me. This entire year pretty much just holds the final installation of the Wheel of Time series for me. Dead excited for that.
Just finished Terry Brooks' latest book. Was good, as all of his work is, though I sort of feel like he could've made it longer and not damaged it at all.
Also, read three of the Earthsea Quartet by Ursula le Guin. Good stuff, if a bit dated.
