    Is it true that it will only take 28 days for a zombie plague to overtake England?

    Salvatore is good but a little repetitive. I had to take a break afer abot 9 nine books. Dritz the dark elf is his main character but a spin off series called the Cleric Quintet is his best work IMO.

    Jordan is very good but the deeper you get into the series the story becomes vast slows down dramatically as he tries to keep all the characters involved. Sadly he too has died at only 57. It's rumored that he left extensive notes for someone else to finish writing it. Including the ending so it may be ok.

    Gemmell's last book was completed by his wife using his notes & that turned out well.

    Yes we do have crappy teeth.



    Just go out after midnight in any UK town or city there's zombies everywhere. The saying is that we don't like to just drink beer ,we like to bathe in it

    Well I knew The Wheel of Time could be tedious, some say too tedious. But many see it as one of the best fantasy series ever, so I thought I'd end up trying it at some point....but who wants to start on that with the last book now in doubt? Hopefully it's finished, and done well.

    So where would you place LOTR against other fantasy epics? I guess one thing I'd like in a fantasy series is a grand scale feel like LOTR. WoT seems to have that, but I have a lot to learn on fantasy books.
