    Are you into R.A. Salvatore? I got into his Drizzt books about this time last year and blew threw about 15 books of his in a very short time. I love his descriptions of combat.

    I havent sat down with a good fantasy book in so long. I have read everything Tolkien has written so many times that I am actually very tired of it.
    These past few years, I have found myself more and more intrigued by American satire and classics, hence Vonnegut (who is probably my favorite author) and Hemingway.

    Hmm, hard to recall. Everything that Tolkien has written, (major works, plus Book of Lost Tales 1 and 2 plus various other non Middle-Earth related books. I really enjoy Micheal Moorcocks Elric Saga, plus Eternal Champion saga. How all of those novels are intertwined is really interesting. I have read many of Terry Brooks's Shanarra series, plus C.S. Lewish and the Narnia stuff. Other novels off hand that I can remember are The Raven Rose (authors name escapes me at the moment), and some of the Conan books.

    I'm saving the best for last...

    The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates.

    Of course, I can't really expect you to like this as much as I do, WarMaiden, considering it is about Anglo-Saxon paganism in England, but the plot goes like this:

    A young christian monk/scribe, Wat Brand, is sent by his monastary to Southern England to learn the ways of the pagan peoples there, so that he can report the information back to his monastary, which they will then use to find a way to convert these "heathen souls" to Christianity, aka "saving" them. The pagan king of the area allows Wat Brand to travel his lands and learn the customs of the area, but only with a guide, who is a pagan sorcerer named Wulf. His first night upon the shores of this new land, Wulf does not show and Wat Brand, called Brand for short, is left alone, with only his wits to aid him. Immediately, the spirits are upon him. Wulf, meanwhile, knows what is happening and chooses to see how brand will react. Finally, the next day, Wulf greets brand and their journey begins. It is a short book, but is very jammed packed with information on pagan customs and the basics behind what is known as Wyrd. Fascinating book, and one that has changed my outlook on many things, and somewhat defines my particular brand of paganism, i.e. Wyrd + Odalism.


    The Way of Wyrd, by Brian Bates can be found at Amazon.com, just click the link.

    I had not heard that about Amazon. Please let us know! I try to boycott companies that aren't supportive of the same things I am, or who support things that I do not.

    I'm not reading anything currently. It took me forever to finish "The Federal Seige At Ruby Ridge" (which was excellent btw). I just don't have the quiet time to sit and read anymore.

    My favorite book is "The Mists of Avalon". I read it in 5th or 6th grade and nothing has compared to it since.
