Is the author's last name Cross?

Oh, I thought of another book series that I always buy, and enjoy: Robert Asprin's "Myth" series...

"Myth Conceptions"
"Little Myth Marker"
"Myth Directions"
"Oh Sweet Mythery of Life"
"Hit or Myth"

and so on...
The whole "sword and soccery" genre needed a comical series, so it wouldn't take itself so damned seriously. The MythAdventures of Aahz and Skeeve are perfect for that!

I swear, Zardoz, you're as "one track minded" as I am! LOL

I've read the First Three Books for Terry Goodkind long time ago...
I think the name of the first was the Sword of Tears. Those first three books were incredible....It was one of the longest and best stories I've ever read.

For me:

-David Eddings' The Belgarion series (ranks up there as my all-time favorite).

-Anything by Terry Pratchett

-James H. Cobb's "Commander Garrett" series: Choosers of the Slain, Sea Strike, Sea Fighter, and Target Lock. A great (but hard to find) book series about a female captain in the U.S. Navy of the not-too-distant future.

As far as Trek books are concerned, it's Star Trek: Vanguard--a series about a Federation starbase set during the time of TOS that really pushes the envelope of what can be done in a Trek series.

I also like the recent launch of post-Nemesis TNG books in which Picard resumes command of the Enterprise-E but now with Worf as his first officer and several new characters to replace Data, Riker, and Troi...

Cross, yes. Wilbur Cross. It's a Barnes and Nobel publication. (Zeppelins of WWI)
