I too, like I saw mentioned in earlier posts found Goodkind to get redundant and stopped reading that 4 or 5 into the series. I loved the first and second of the series.

loved To Say nothing of the Dog by connie willis, one of the few books i've read several times, and also loved her doomsday book, where a college girl goes back to the middle ages for a time travel class but they accidentally send her to a place with the plague. And everything else she's written incl short stories
love Jasper Fforde, and apparently i'm the only one here who loves the nursery crime series, which he actually wrote FIRST and couldn't publish til after the thursday next ones
I love Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash being my favorite but it's seriously harder sci-fi because of the language
Dan Simmons, awesome, everything from vampires to ghosts to sci-fi
Loved early Anita Blake, don't like later Laurell K. Hamilton
Love Tim Pratt (odd, touching fantasy), Terry Pratchett, Arthur C. Clarke, William Gibson, Heinlein esp Starship Troopers, Harry Potter, Pullman, Douglas Adams, Tolkien, Richard Matheson, Robin McKinley, Mary Janice Davidson's funny vampire stories

I recently finished "Becoming" by Jeanne Stein which was excellent.

I stepped out of genre this month also with The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. I just finished it so I haven't posted in the forum yet. It starts slow, but pulls you into the lives of this 1900's family in England.

"Snowcrash" is a great book! If you like t-shirt tie-ins, there is a online store that is making shirts from places featured in lots of sci/horror films. The site is called "lastexittonowhere"; (I tried to make the link but it didn't work); they have a shirt for the Costra Nostra Pizza Company.

My ongoing novel journey topic for now is African American Science Fiction and Horror. There aren't many, So far I have done all but one Brandon Massey, all of Tananarive Due and one of Octavia Butler's books. right now I am going through Octavia's novels.
For some reason I read Tananarive Due's "Living Blood" over and over.

I found 'Magician' to be a little plodding. When I find myself skimming the pages I know that the book hasn't grabbed me.
