Since @Zer has @thebluerider chained up in the basement and doing only god knows what to him, I'll champion this thread. In this thread, we discuss what we are reading, makes requests, and generally talk sci-fi/fantasy novels. I finished Fatherland, more an alternative history where the German won WW2, and a murder happens just before Hitler's 75th birthday. Solid book. About 1/2 way through Critical Failures 3. Really, really fun books, where a group of Cavern and Creatures (basically dungeons and dragons) players get transferred by magic dice to the gaming world. Thinking about Dragons of a Fallen Sun next. I enjoyed the dragonlance novels as a kid and never picked up this series. Anyone read it? Oh, and if you have not read Altered Carbon- you suck. go read it and then and only then may you return.
