    Re: J.R.R Tolkien or C.S Lewis

    Hey Pang.Have your ever heard of Stephen R Donaldson and have you read anything by him.

    Hes over looked and underrated,But hes up the with Tolkien and Lewis.
    Hes an awesome Auther,and I always look forward to his stuff.

    He writes in the vein of Tolkien and Lewis,but much more gritty,Hes written a series call Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever.If you havent read please give it a try.

    My heart beats crazy and my blood runs wild

    Re: J.R.R Tolkien or C.S Lewis

    Good call psycho.

    I read the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant a long time ago when I was in my teens, and to be honest didn't really get on with it very well. I then left it for a couple of years and went back to it and enjoyed it much more, reading the whole series.

    I notice he's published a follow up recently, have you read it, and have you also read any of his other stuff that I've noticed on the book shelves here?

    Other stuff that I was reading at the same time, was the Pliocene epoch by a guy called Julian May and I always thought they were good for a second read.

    I havent read Julian May but will give it a shot.

    The follow up trilogy for Thomas Covenant is very very hard to get right now, I've had it on order for a month,but no call yet.

    I just finished readin the guns of the south by Harry Turtledove.Its an alternate history thing.

    A group of men go back in time from 2010 to 1962
    during the American Civil War,and they bring along crate loads of AK47 rifles and give them to General Robert E Lee.

    I have some great fantasy stories but they all end up with me alone with Kelly Clarkson.
