Halfway through A Clash of Kings, superb read so far.

Re: great fantasy novels
I could argue why I think The Sarantine Mosaic is better than The Fionavar Tapestry but, really, I'd be pretty happy if we got anyone to read either of them.

Re: great fantasy novels
The "Song of Ice and Fire" series is far and away my favorite fantasy setting. It's incredibly in depth and well written, and it's not written for the kiddies.

Re: great fantasy novels
I enjoyed Guy Gavriel Kay years ago but now he just comes off as kind've pretentious. I ZzzzzZzz'ed out during the first Sarantine book...might reread shortly.

George R.R. Martin delivers the goods like no other.

If you've read everything in fantasy I'd suggest Steven Erikson. Huge books, decent quality and he riffs off every cliche in the series. Erikson was also an archaeologist and he really leverages his background to the benefit of the series.

Re: great fantasy novels
Yeah, Aaron, I thought his last book was kind of pointless, myself. But you should give Sarantine another go...there's one chapter in the second one that's worth it.
