I finished HP and the Deathly Hallows on Sunday.
:lol: Me too, I finished it in four hours after getting it at midnight and was in work for 7 Saturday morning!

Speaking of Terry Pratchett, the new book will be out in the UK by September. It's called Making Money and it is set in the Ankh-Morpork Mint. It's the second of PTerry's books to be set around Moist von Lipwig (the first being Going Postal) and is looking good!

Ooh, yes, I saw that on wikipedia a while ago. It's been a while since the last non-children's Discworld and I can't wait :-D

It seems to me that a few people have mentioned S.M Stirling lately, so I'm thinking about checking out his website and reading the first few chapters that he has.

Also, I just go the new Harry Potter book from my mom and am hoping to finish it soon. But I'm trying to finish the current book. It's called the Bard of Sorcery by Gerard Daniel Hourner. It's about a man who gets caught by a huge host traveling from another world. He's told of how the leader of the host can travel between worlds with an amulet and steals it. Then the adventure continues on with him learning more about the amulet and his past as he was once an orphan. Kind of interesting but also kind of dry at times.

A while back I asked if any one had read a series of books about some kids thhat got "caught" in a computer game, much like "Lawnmower man", and were going around as avatares. There were many side stories, such as two first world war soldiers that were trapped in a similar space.

I could not remember the titles or author.

I have FOUND them!!

I would reccopmend to you all;

Tad Williams "Otherland" series.

WIERD, not QUITE S.F, buit... well try them

They are about 700 pages lon. Five books.

Knowing you shower, some of you are BOUND to like them.
