American Gods was a Christmas Present, it somewhere in the to-read pile.

You might want to skip it high up in the to-read pile there Fitz. It was, IMO of course, a fantastic example of how fantasy can be done without the age old traditional themes. Not that I have anything against those themes, but I like a lot of variety in my reading and American Gods was original but still a great story. One of those books that rally stands out in my mind. And, as always, let us know what you think once you've read it. It's one of those books I often reccomend but I usually don't know how it's recieved by the other readers (though I know susf enjoyed it).

I second what Alucard says. Read it and read it soon, Fitz. http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/smile.gif

I wanted Storm of Swords for Christmas, given that I can only find it in hardcover which does me no good since I am a broke-ass student. Bought Akira, though, beyond all reason but I must have it! AKIRA RULES!!!

not surprising since Storm of Swords is a true work of art.
