i have been staring at Dragon Age - The Callinf for some time now...Would you or could you let me know how the book is?? Thanx Dwagginz

Certainly, Shayna. I've not got The Calling yet (Ordered it last night), but I've little doubt it'll be much different from The Stolen Throne.

Burner of Ships
Found an unused Borders giftcard yesterday...yes!
The Deed of Paksennarion Elizabeth Moon
Chronicles of the Black Company Glen Cook
The Bonehunters Steven Erikson
The first two are omnibuses (omnibusi?) with 3 books each, so I got 7 books at once!
Interesting...The Bonehunters is longer than both 3 book omnibuses.

Yesterday I walked into an independent bookshop in Guernsey, and saw, for the first time ever, the complete Empire Trilogy by Feist and Wurtz. I've heard nothing but good things about but I've never seen it in a shop. So, of course, I bought all 3 and walked out the shop a happy man. The best thing is that they've got the old cover art on them - which I love.

The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Secret History of Fantasy ed. Peter Beagle (the Hartwell essay, an excerpt and updating of a chapter from his Age of Wonder, is quite a good short history of fantasy as a genre)

We Read for Light
Most Recent Purchase
Just bought & finished The Hawk of May by Gillian Bradshaw.
This comes pretty close to being required reading for the King Arthur buffs among us, in that she did her homework and placed the Celtic warlords' exploits in a well-researched historic setting: quarreling among one another while trying to hold back the expansion of the Saxon holdings (a legacy of the Romans, who brought the Saxons into Britain as mercenaries to fight the Celts).
It's part one of a trilogy, so I've got some more reading to do.

I just made some purchases at The Book Depository and figured I'd post here, but then realised there were no fantasy books in the order. That's a first.
