Thanks conanfan. Now for the most part there are dedicated threads to my three favorite fiction genres (fantasy/sci-fi, horror, and mystery/thrillers).
Of course most of the fiction I read is extremely serious "literature."
Darwath Trilogy is pretty good. Hambly is now apparently more into into mysteries, but she has written some decent fantasy.
I think the Darwath Trilogy might be her earliest work, from early 80s, but still a good read, in my opinion. Written before multi-volume series became nearly obligatory in the fantasy genre. Which has resulted (again in my opinion) in a lot of boring, cliched writing/stories.
