      Other than LOTR related titles anyone have any favorite series or authors?

      I recently completed the whole Wheel of Time series by reading everything from start to finish. Amazing to find little things I missed when I first read some of earlier books back in the 90's

      I'm aware Brandon Sanderson (completed the WoT series after the later Robert Jordan) has his own series. Would love something along the same lines. Magic and mythical beats rather than outer space.

      About 10 years ago I read all of Neil Gaiman's stuff.

      American Gods was great. Anansi Boys and Neverwhere were also pretty solid. Stardust wasn't my favorite but was good. The Sandman collection was a good read also.

      I don't read fiction for fun much anymore, but those books stuck with me which says something.

      David Eddings "The Belgariad", 5 books, followed by The Mallorean.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Belgariad

      Best 10 book series Ive ever read.


      Another good series that deals with fantasy/robots mixed is Piers Anthony's "Apprentice Adept" series.
