TitleAuthorNotes
A Path to Coldness of Heart (Dread Empire)Glen CookAfter 24 years a sequal to the Dread Empire. Don't start here, pick up A Shadow of All Night Falling, but I will be purchasing this.
The Bride Wore Black LeatherSimon R. GreenA fun popcorn series. I'll pick it up when the price drops to paperback prices.
The Wit and Wisdom of DiscworldTerry PratchettThe Wit & Wisdom of Discworld should be a very long book. This looks worth purchasing.
Skirmish: The House War: Book FourMichelle WestMichelle West House War series has been good, but recovering ground from earlier novels. This is the first novel since The Sun Sword to advance the timeline. I enjoyed it, but you need to be familiar with her entire output or you will be a little lost at the start (it takes place after an event in The Sun Sword that I had
forgotten.

TitleAuthorNotes
Twenty Palaces, A PrequelHarry ConnollyHarry Connolly's Twenty Palaces series is wonderful Urban Fantatsy. This is a self published prequel after the publisher dropped the series. If you haven't read the series I highly recommend you check it out.
When the SaintsDave DuncanI love Dave Duncan, he is a consistantly good writer.
Lord of the Fire LandsDave DuncanA good book in his Blade's book. By no means start here however.
The Wild WaysTanya HuffTanya Huff is worth reading. This is a lightweight sequal to The Enchantment Emporium IIRC
Bones of the Past (Arhel)Holly LisleAnother I haven't read. The price is attractive.
Mind of the Magic (Arhel)Holly LisleI haven't read this one, the price is attractive and I'll purchase it.
Fire in the Mist (Arhel)Holly LisleI thought this was a good magic novel.
Broken BladeKelly McCulloughKelly McCullough is a great fantasy writer. This was a very interesting novel that looks to start a very intruiging series. Recommended
The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn NovelBrandon SandersonThe Mistborn Trilogy from Brandon Sanderson was a good series, I'm REALLY looking forward to this 'steakpunk like' extension.
The Hobbit (Enhanced Edition)J.R.R. TolkienOne of the best stories ever written. This and its sequels are the driver of the vast majority of fantasy.

Blog Restarting

I've gone through and revised my software to be able to extract information from Amazon again. I will no longer be able to retrieve publisher information, and there are a few HTML artifacts, but I can start publishing the list again. It has actually cost me money to do this, since I've found about $50 of Kindle ebooks that I had missed, and now wish to purchase.
