Jim Butcher
The Dresden Files - Book 12 - Changes by Jim Butcher

I don’t know what is worse when waiting for the next book in the series to arrive. Is it the wait for the book itself, or is it the knowledge that no longer how long you take to read the book you are going to have to wait another year for the next installment. In the case of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher I have found that each installment is a story into itself and although I await eagerly for the next tale I don’t find myself going crazy during the wait. Well lets just say that Changes not only makes drastic alterations to the story’s main plots but also leaves me wondering What?! How?? What happens now!!

Roger Zelazny
The Great Book of Amber by Roger Zelazny

It is hard to know what to say about the amber novels by Roger Zelazny. To put things simply if you have not yet read these novels get them this instance and don’t stop reading until you have finished them all, after wards simply relax and dwell on Amber, Corwin, and the Shadows of Possibilities that lay beyond and between the pattern and chaos. A classic fantasy tale that can be enjoyed simply for its sword fights and magic, or for its deeper more compelling tale of self-discovery.

Margaret Ronald
Fantasy edited by Sean Wallace & Paul Tremblay

Have you ever read a story and know that it would have been better if the author had only paved their own path instead of following the normal archetypes and plot lines. Goosegirl is that story you were wishing for, Margaret Ronald takes the classic fairy tale of the same name and manages to create a unique and riveting tale of magic and personal choices sure to delight readers of all ages.

K.J. Kabza
Beneath Ceaseless Skies : Volume 35

The Leafsmith in Love is a feast for your imagination sure to please readers who enjoy any sub genre of Fiction. This well written tale will take longer to finish then you would guess from it’s length not for being slow but because you will find yourself savoring each word and the images it invokes in you. An entrancing tale of romance in a clockwork world that will leave you wholly satisfied yet leave your imagination running for days on end.
