  1. Let me instead of saying ‘yay gaiman’ like a fangurl, recommend you 5 books/writers you should try 🙂 based on your top 15 list of course.
    Have you read anything by David Gemmell? Mercedes Lackey? You shoudl give those a try at least.
    In no particular order, btw:
    5. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell – Susanna Clarke (I think you may have read this already?)
    4. The Engineer Trilogy (Devices and Desires, Evil for Evil, The Escapement) by K.J. Parker (Tom Holt)
    3. The Empire Trilogy (Daughter of the Empire/Servant of the Empire/Mistress of the Empire) Janny Wurts & Raymon Fiest
    2. Looking for Jake (short stories) China Mieville

    1. Recommendations are always welcome. 😉
      I have heard of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, but I haven’t read it yet. I have had the book in my hands a few times though in the book stores, but never actually bought it.

      I don’t think I’ve heard of the others, so I’ll have to check them out. Thank you. 🙂
