    The Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis (still havenít read it!)

    The House of Storms - Ian R. MacLeod (Loved The Light Ages so planned to read the sequel)

    The Chessmen of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs (just where I am up to on the series)

    The Cry of the Newborn - James Barclay (really looking forward to this, loved the Raven books)

    Grave Peril: Book Three of the Dresden Files - Jim Butcher (quite enjoy these books, and again itís where I am up to in the series)

    Jimmy the Hand - Raymond E. Feist (just where I am up to on the series)



    All four of the books below depend on me reading one and liking it as I hear they are all in the same vein, style wise. But they all sound pretty interesting so Iím willing to try them:

    Veniss Underground - Jeff Vandermeer
    The Etched City - K.J. Bishop
    The Year of Our War - Steph Swainston
    Vellum: The Book of All Hours: 1 - Hal Duncan

    Definitely the next four are
    A Game of Thrones
    A Clash of Kings
    A Storm of Swords
    A Feast for Crows
    , I need to re-read the first 3 before the new one publishes.

    After that, the pile looks something like this

    Godslayer by Jacqueline Carey
    Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman
    The Hidden Stars by Madeline Howard
    Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem
    Tides (ARC) by Scott Mackay
    lost boy, lost girl by Peter Straub
    A Telling of Stars by Caitlin Sweet

    and the current issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

    From an interview with Steven Erikson at Books At Transworld (Transworld = Bantam Press, more or like). I'll provide the link below.

    "What are the top five books in your genre/Who are your top 5 authors?

    Top five Fantasy novels:
    * Last Call by Tim Powers
    * Grendel by John Gardner
    * Ash by Mary Gentle
    * The Black Company by Glen Cook
    * Lord Foul's Bane by S. R. Donaldson

    Top five Fantasy authors:
    * Paul Kearney
    * Tim Powers
    * Glen Cook
    * Mary Gentle
    * Fritz Leiber
    "

    Here's the link:

    "Really, really light"? No, not really.

    Who? Robert Stanek? Or a member of his family? Because that's who all of the reviews on Amazon, etc. are written by.
