Firecat- So we should read the Battleaxe series first (weren't they published in the US with Wayfarer first?

The Battleaxe series comes first. The first book of the Battleaxe series (entitled Battleaxe) was given the name 'The Wayfarer Redepmtion' in the U.S. Everywhere else, The Wayfarer Redemption refers to the SECOND trilogy. See the 'I was in the bookstore and those Sara Douglass books really confused me...' thread for the complete rundown of titles and order.

Qin:...uh. Wow. I think you've officially read more fantasy lit than any human being I know.
me:Though I haven't read a number of the series here, I've been keeping track...
Kane:Really? One more to go? I recently finished Soldiers Live, and then read an interview that explained that the glittering plain should have finished earlier but he convinced the publishers he couldn't cram it all in... looking forward to another one with the Old Man...
I was under the impression it was onging as I saw another Ethshar novel just recently...
Ntschotschi:Rwan/Roberson/Elliot "The Golden Keys" series is complete and very good.

In Germany it isn't. There are three books. As I read it in German I didn't realize.
One more good complete series: Holly Lisle "Secret Texts"
May 6th, 2002, 10:53 AM #21Duncan, Dave - Tale of the King's Blade - complete though I think Duncan will be dipping in every now and then
- The Darksword Trilogy - complete with 1 sequel
Berg, Carol - The Rai-Kirah??? - not complete
And Watt-Evans is going between the Esthshar novels and the novels of Arlian Dragon Weather which was pretty good and the second book The Dragon Society.

- I've seen all good people turn their heads each day so satisfied I'm on my way!
Mithfânion, perhaps he was just waiting to finish reading to be sure it was worth adding his imput...
That's what I've done...
estranghero, you might consider adding:
Kerner, Elizabeth - Tales of Kolmar - NC
A decent read. She has an easy way and the books only take a day or two to read. Light and fun. She's only done two and is in the process of writing the third.
Book 1 - Song in the Silence
Book 2 - The Lesser Kindred
Book 3, forthcoming - Redeeming the Lost(working title)

Jane S. Fancher's Dance of the Rings is not complete. She is working on a fourth book now and would like to write at least one more novel after that, plus she might have a short story collection set in that world.
Anne Bishop plans more Black Jewels books. The next one will be about Lucivar and his courtship of his wife.
Rawn, Roberson, and Elliott might be writing sequels (one for each author) to The Golden Key . I've heard a few different things about it though.
Elizabeth Haydon has a new book in the Rhapsody series coming out next month called Requiem for the Sun.

I didn't see these listed, so:
Jan Siegel's Fern Capel trilogy is complete now (Prospero's Children, The Dragon Charmer and The Witch Queen (Witch's Honour in the uk) - a fun series
Juliet Marillier's Sevenwaters Trilogy is complete (Daughter of the Forest, Son of the Shaodws, Child of Prophecy) - excellent series
also someone had a question mark about Guy Kay's Satarine (sp?) Mosiac ...this is a completed duology.
Sean Russell has several completed duologies that aren't bad...his incomplete series being The One Kingdom.
Katherine Kerr's Deverry series has one more volume yet to come, or that was the plan I last heard. Her American publisher will pick it up when its finished, but I think she mentioned on her site that they might split it into 2 books? I am a bit confused but will probably get the book from the uk anyway.

I read this thread earlier today and I was in a bookstore this evening. I hadn't realized how many fantasy series were out there. A large percentage of the above series must have been written in the last ten years. What started this boom? The success of Jorden?

I'd highly recommend the Deathgate Cycle by Weis and Hickman. Excellent, excellent series; light to read, fast, and still deeply thought-provoking without being overwhelmnig or losing its direction.
