An old seires that I really love is Roger Zelazny's Amber series. Graet ideas, great characters, great story.
I asume you onlt want recomandations for old series so I will not recomand 'The farseer' trilogy or any of he sort

A servant of Lord Arioch
Yeah, Amber is great.
Another great old series is The Hed Trilogy by Patricia Mckillip

The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay is pretty good.
December 2nd, 2000, 09:10 PM
The 'Lyonesse' series and the 'Tales of the Dying Earth' books by Jack Vance. Radical departure from modern language styles, and a weird sense of humour.

Macros, i read the fionavar tapesty, it was pretty good.
I like old series because you can usually find all the books, and you don't have to wait for them to be written!
anyone read the Time Master trilogy by lewis cooper?

No, i have not read it..but has anyone read "The Redemption Of Athalus by David Eddings"?
this book is gripping!

Holy, that book's out. I've got to see what Eddings can do ina new setting. His playing around with the Belgariad universe was getting old.

The Redemption of Althalus? Gripping? I got about 3 chapters into it and threw it down in disgust! It was just a rehash of all his/their previous books - Emerald is Polgara/Sephrenia, Althalus is a mixture of several other characters, the bad guys are the same bad guys from all the other books - even the lines are the same! 'Be nice' is trundled out yet again!
Ok, I'm off my soapbox now, no offence intended to any fans of the book, but I just think that David and Leigh Eddings have reached an all time low with this book, they're just re-hashing all their characters and story lines just to squeeze another few pounds out of the public.

I found a lot of similarities to the original D Eddings books too. The house just allowed them the time to skip from place to place quicker!! 5 books into 1.
C'nedra was there, as was Silk, King Anheg(? spelling), Garion etc.
I was most disappointed, as I was looking forward to a NEW DEddings book.

But as for old series... try Lost Worlds of Clarke Ashton Smith, or... Richard Ford's "Quest for the Faradawn" books... dark and brilliant... if you take my meaning
