I read the first one on the recommendation of a friend. I thought it was ok, but not enough to bother buying the rest.
And now that I've finished "The Dragon Masters" by Jack Vance, there seems to be some influence from that.
Just started browsing through "Iron Sunrise" by Charles Stross again. Darn good book.

Ah. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit, and I think the second one even more. This one drags a little, but given that it's pretty much setting up for the fourth and final book of the series, it makes sense.

"THe Incorporated Knight" by L. Sprague and Cristine de Camp.
So far so good. Wonderful little story about a knight with ambitions for money. Makes light with the romanticized Malloryan knighthood ideal and has the people speaking in well-done archaicisms.
Sort of like "A Connecticut Yankee" meets Jack Vance.

Incorporated Knight was a good read right up to the end.

Have gotten 1 chapter into Tanith Lee's "The Wars of Vis".
I'm so glad I found even some Lee books last fall. More of her more traditional fantasy worlds. So far it's promising. Maybe not Flat Earth good (is any of her other stuff that good?) but decent.

Currently working on Just After Sunset by Stephen King. So far, the stories are a bit meh, though I liked the way the first one ended quite a bit. (As well as SK's commentary - "Yes, I'm a romantic, so fucking sue me.")

Also slogging through Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan. I -will- finish this series...

So will I. Once the story is finished. Some years ago I decided I wasn't going to re-read the entire bloody series each time a new book came out, so I shelved it until such time as it is finished.

I figure that, at this rate, by the time I finally finish the series, the last book will be out. Though, considering I've been trying to read them for about five years, it might take signficantly longer than that...

Now reading Christine by Stephen King. So far, so good. Does a nice job taking characters that seem like they should be cliches of every highschool story and giving them depth and personality.

I'm still rather sad that he died before finishing the last book.

I mean come on. That's got to be his LIFE'S work there. And he died before finishing it?! That just sucks.

I made it to about book 7 or 8 ..... loved the world he created, but started forgetting what had happened in book 2 and 3. Such an imaginative universe that I'd love to get to play around in. I'd make a hell of an awesome Aes Sedai. Just sayin.

I'm in the process of reading a play called "Crimes of the Heart" by Beth Rowley. Tis good so far. At least I'm enjoying it.
