Hello everyone I have just found this place after reading the Farseer trilogy. I think it was a excelent series I couldn't put it down! Does anyone else think this is a good book and if so what else what would you recommend.

This is my first Post.

January 8th, 2001, 08:14 AM
Yeah, the Farseer is excellent.

I would recommend A song of ice and fire by George R.R. Martin. Although it isn't really necessary because everyone else is going to recommend it too.

January 8th, 2001, 08:20 AM
Yep I also Recommend George Martins "A Song of Ice and Fire" series which so far are
1. A Game of Throne
2. A Clash of Kings
3. A Storm of Swords

I also Recommend Steven Erikson's "A Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen" series which so far are avilable:
1. Gardens of the Moon
2. Deadhouse Gates

Those two are Ace books, and I hope you will end up enjoying them both as I did.

Yes... the books follow on and are better read in the above order

Robin Hobb has also writen another series set to the far south of the Six Duchies, it is called 'The Liveship Traders', the books are:-

1. The Ship of Magic
2. The Mad Ship
3. Ship of Destiny

They are on a par with 'The Farseer Trilogy'

Robin Hobb is working on new trilogy with Fitz aged 35, called the Tawny Man Trilogy. The first book's title: Fool's Errand.

The Liveship Traders is an excellent trilogy as well.

FitzFlagg... Congratulations, I think you will be brilliant as a moderator.

I am really looking forward to the new Hobb books, any idea of the timescale for publication?

I would reccomend anything by Tad Williams. He has written two series:

Memory, Sorrow, Thorn Trilogy:
book 1- Dragonbone Chair
book 2- Stone of Farewell
book 3- To Green Angel Tower.

He has also written a science fiction series, which is also really good:

Otherland series:
book 1- City of Golden Shadow
book 2- River of Blue Fire
book 3- Mountain of Black Glass
book 4- Sea of Silver Light.

Also, like Lady Fox said, Anne Bishop is good. I read the entire trilogy of hers in four days.

Tad Williams is one of the best right now, IMHO. George R.R. Martin has given praise to Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn in an online interview, I think on barnesandnoble.com--something to the effect that it was partial inspiration for actually writing A Song of Ice and Fire--Dont quote me http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I think Fool's Errand will be out in August of 2002 in the U.S. and Feb 2002 in U.K. and Australia, not sure, but she posts on the BB on her website. www.robinhobbonline.com (http://www.robinhobbonline.com)
