I give Erikson's Bauchelain and Korbel Broach a thumbs up. A big thumbs up, as a matter of fact. But that's because I loved the richly twisted humor and Erikson's cynical wit, not to mention his darkly lyrical prose style, which I believe was even more concentrated in this stand-alone book, moreso than in his other Malazan novels.
As someone mentioned, Bauchelain and Korbel Broach is not a part of the regular series. The book is a collection of stories, as a matter of fact, focused on these two necromancers, and one story is nearly long enough to be called a novella... eh, maybe.
It was fun reading... and divinely macabre.

Hah - when I saw the post I was coming here to recommend Gail Z. Martin ... Doh! Then I thought oh wait...what about Sabriel by Garth Nix? - Doh Redux. So I guess I'm out of options.

A long time since I read them but I remember enjoying the necroscope series.
