i saw your comment on Janise's neil gaiman post... and noticed that you're bearing the name of another fantasy book by charles de lint. I'm about half way through that book, can't say it's my favorite book ever, but was wondering if you had some recommendations of any other authors in the same genre - fantasy but no more elves and dragons please - as i like to call it?

Neil Gaiman is my faavorite author ever... but i've already read and re-read his stuff... dabblign in charles de lint... bored myself through terry goodkind... am in love with george rr martin (despite the dragons) but am running out of things to read *lol*

RE Guy Gavriel Kay... have you tried "Lions of Al-Rassam"? That's my favorite for a number of reasons. Fionavar got a bit old, and much of it felt rather juvenile.

The others, aside from Nail Gaiman, I haven't read. I just recently read a Gaiman short story, "Troll Bridge", found in "Smoke and Mirrors." I often prefer short fiction to long, and I deem this to be one of the cleanest and best short stories I have ever read. It joins "Johnny Mnemonic" [Gibson] (the story, NOT the movie), "Neutron Star" [Niven], and maybe also "The Hero as Werwolf" [Gene Wolfe] in my short fiction favorites list.

Different topic:

Would you be interested in lj-friending me? We have a number of lj-friends in common, possibly some real-life ones as well. We have probably met in person, though I am not certain about that.

I saw you write yet another comment on a friend's lj entry (this time, angelbob) and wondered what you write in yours. Sometimes I write things that may be of interest to you in mine, and of course this would be a mutual sort of thing.

Whether or not, have a lovely day!

Friend of Janise's, by way of introduction. Username is giving me another reason to put "The Onion Girl" higher on my to-read list...

That's what a couple of my friends were saying about it, but as I tend to appreciate dark I admit to being even curiouser.

What would you say his strongest was?
