Steph Swainston anyone?
Hey everyone, first post... Love the site, been lurking at work for about 2 weeks and compiled a very nice "to read" list thanks to you guys... I figured I'd throw out a more obscure author for my first post.
Any Steph Swainston fans out there? My reading tastes normally gravitate towards male authors, but a couple years ago a Neil Gaiman blurb on the cover of Steph Swainston's "The Year of Our War" grabbed my eye, so I decided to give it a shot. Very, very original, gritty fantasy. I loved it. About to pick up the 3rd novel "Dangerous Offspring", but wish I'd waited b/c they've released "The Castle Omnibus". Anyways, just wondering if anyone else had read her work and what your impressions were...
