    Laurell K Hamilton I really like with her Anita Blake vampire hunter series. I just have a problem with how much sex is taken with her books.

    The Anita Blake books are pretty good up through Obsidian Butterflies. Then they go downhill in a hurry.

    gave up after "Blue Moon".

    had no regrets when i later heard my wife exclaim "ahh! they put down a tarp!" while reading one of the later books. *shudder*

    Just finished Night Watch-great read, thanks for the tip!

    One of the things that's frustrating is that some of my favorites are not available in audio yet.
    Sherri temper is an amazing author, and she is one of my favorites. I'm not biased at all, I just like great writing.

    Ok anyone interested in the civil war needs to read killer angels, by m. Sahara, about the battle of Gettysburg. The other books by him and his son are good, but KA is an awesome read.

    Del, is that Sheri Tepper? I can't find Sherri Temper on Amazon. I'm always looking for a new (or old!) good author.

    Michelle Sagara is another good one, although in the books I've read so far (her Elantra series), there seems to be a point about 2/3 of the way through the book where she gets kind of stuck and the pace slows down almost enough to put you to sleep before it picks back up again.

    I confess I still read Laurell Hamilton. I check the book out from the library and skip the sex scenes, leaving about 100 pages per book to read. Then I go on Amazon and read the reviews and laugh myself silly.

    Well, you figure she has to fill up the extra pages with something since Anita Blake can't fight any more. With going from sneakers to stilettos and having her bra size go up astronomically, if she tried to swing a sword she'd just keep spinning and auger into the ground...

    On a positive note, just got an email from the library that "Nightwatch" is ready to pick up.
