I love sword & sorcery and old-school fantasy (Lin Carter, etc.), but I could NOT get into this guy's writing at all.

Maybe it's just me and about 500 other people on Mobileread who feel this way.

Colour of Magic (Diskworld #1) by Terry Pratchett is $1.99 at Amazon. I'd include link, but I lost my bluetooth mouse somewhere and can't copy and paste without it.

Fair warning: this has changed at some point so Amazon may not recognize that you own the book. They don't seem to think I do at any rate. My copy says something about "bonus material" (whatever that is) so I guess that is the change.

Salvatore is one of those authors that I've been aware of for a long time. His Damiano trilogy got good reviews. His Drizzt novels were popular. I picked up the Damiano trilogy in paperback and never got around to reading any of it.

He's got enough of a rep that I'm willing to throw him into my backlog. I'm more metal than emo, though, so he and I might not get along that well.

Speaking of headbanging. I'm pretty sure that Fredric Brown was a metal maven. Amazon.com has Martians, Go Home for $3.99 and What Mad Universe for $2.99.

In fact, they have quite a few other Gateway (owned by Hachette) editions of some good books at reasonable prices. Gateway publisher search.

Norman Spinrad - The Iron Dream for $2.99. Definately metal.

Norman had a self-published edition of the book for sale on Amazon.com a while back and it was badly OCR mangled. A quick glance through this sample looked better than Norman's edition.

Nah.

Salvatore doesn't write swords and sorcery. His stuff, at least the D&D tie-in stuff that I've seen, lacks the sense of wonder that swords and sorcery bring to the table. He writes popcorn fantasy (his own description, I believe) which is fine if that's your cuppa.

Thanks for that. I don't think Jim Butcher is going to be my style, but for $0.99 I'll give it a chance.

I don't know if he will be my style either but decided to give it a shot.

RE: Butcher, the first three books were ok but not great for me. Worth reading but mostly forgettable. If you don't like them at all then don't bother with more. If it is "ok" for you, you might try to get to at least book 5 before completely giving up on them. Book 5 is where the series went from "ok" to "WOW!" for me.

The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t with Her Mind by Jackson Ford is $2.99 at Amazon.com
Quote:
Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she's got telekinetic powers -- a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she's normal for once.
But then a body turns up at the site of her last job -- murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She's got 24 hours to clear her name - and it's not just her life at stake. If she can't unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that's on the brink of exploding...
