Right, because a book published less than 2 years ago (in 2009) is an older work.

Apparently, he worked on it some more since.

-->Felix Castor series or Joe Pitt series, depending on how much noir you can tolerate

I liked Darren Shan - Cirque du Freak series a lot, loved them. Didn't like his Demonata series though, gave up twice after the second book.
What will I like after CdF?

Younger Hobbit went from the Darren Shan to the Skullduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy: might be an option.

Ben Aaronovitch: Rivers of London (Midnight Riot in the US), Moon Over Soho. third book due in June. Great fun - a few flaws but I was enjoying myself so much I didn't care.

Sandman Slim books. I can only say - I pretty much had to read in one sitting. Awesome. Several books out.
ETA: I'll second the Carey nom - fab writer and nice bloke too.

I agree completely. And there's a new one due out later this year as well. Devil Said Bang

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the correct thread to post this question . . .
I just watched the Hobbit and I loved the character of Radagast the Brown. His home, his style, his manner of transportation, and the idea of him living in the middle of nature was awesome! Are there any books that feature simiar wizards? More "earthy" and nature oriented if that makes sense? So basically if I liked him, then what other books would I like? Thanks!

Recently I listened to and thoroughly enjoyed Ready Player One, John Dies at the End and its sequel. Anybody have any recommendations that are similar to these?
