FANaTics Anonymous

Hi. My name is HomeInMyShoes and Iím a fantasy-authors-named-terry-ic (FANaTic). I was compiling a list of books Iíve read over my lifetime which is staggeringly incomplete at the moment and I noticed a rather large section devoted to authors named Terry. Goodkind, Pratchett, Brooks. 44 books. 21,000+ pages. Is that healthy? Pratchett, 1,700+ pages. Goodkind, 8,700+ pages. Brooks, 11,000+ pages . Iím re-reading the Heritage of Shannara. No joke. Again. I thought I was done with Brooks, but I picked up the first of the Word and the Void and it was the best yet. Those three books are the reason I started re-reading Heritage.

I look at the number of pages read and the time spent. Thereís so much I could have read. Been wiser. Been more well informed.

I need help. Iíve already got another Pratchett book bought and on the Kindle. Iím eyeing a Brooks new release. Iím tempted by another Goodkind title.

Someone?

Anyone?

Read for pleasure. If not for that, then why else?

I suppose I set out to educate myself by reading, though that is mainly because I want to be a better writer, and I try to read writers whose work I wish to analyse. Still, though, I am reading for pleasure. If I don't like an author's work, then there's probably not too much I want to learn from them.

That said, you do seem to have a Terry problem.

Hmmm...it might be more variety and I could talk about John Steinbeck or James Joyce and not be embarrassed around the literati.

I usually read for pleasure, well okay, I slogged through Moby Dick the one time when I didn't enjoy it that much. Parts were good, but a lot just read like a gigantic book on whaling terms. I think it more boils down to fall back authors. You're at the bookstore, times running out, plane to catch, what do you pick up?

It just proves fantasy authors need a good editor , are right wing and full mof themselves or are just full of sh**t. They don't need to be named Terry either , the Davids are bad too- Drake Webber etc.:
