Eddings - Yep, I've read almost all of Eddings' work. Fun, good dialogue... same ideas over and over, but I read 'em all anyway.
Goodkind - for some reason I've never read any of his books. I don't know why either. I had always meant to, but never got around to it and then in more recent times I got a bit turned off by all the talk of him heavily pushing his politics in the later books.
Brooks - The Sword of Shanara was the first book I ever read totally of my own volition (earlier books I enjoyed, but had been through school generally) in mabye 9th grade. I ended up reading most of the Shannara books and recently reread Sword of Shannara. I know it's rough as it was done to cash in on the Tolkien craze and all that... let's just say I enjoyed them all much more as a young adult.
JV Jones - I've heard of and seen his books before and I *think* I've read the Baker's Boy, but it must not have made a big impression.
I read it all the way through so couldn't have been too bad.
John Ringo - not familiar with him so I'll check this out.
David Drake - know the name, but never read any of his work so I'll check this out, too.
And to "Falbe Publishing" - I'll check out your books!
Thanks everyone. I'll let you know what I end up liking or disliking.
