Oh hell no.  The game of thrones series is nothing like Lord of the Rings.

lol, I was pretty sure of that. I just thought on a basic shallow level of psychological recognition, the "R. R." in his name, so prominently displayed like is popular these days, conjures up Tolkien. And if someone has this sort of created familiarity with something, they are more likely to purchase such an item. Unless they have a negative opinion of Tolkien...

Or it's a coincidence.

You should look up the series and read it.  If you liked Tolkien or Terry Goodkind, or that genre.  Its an HBO series at the moment as well.  Good stuff man.

No, he's actually rather critical of the Tolk and all the cheezy derivatives.

PS the series starts out strong, but the last two books were "meh".  Though the last half of dragon picks back up (should have allowed his editor to cut out the bullshit and publish in one volume, as was the original plan

you familiar with the black company books?  I tend to hate most fantasy (the majority is the equivalent of male romance novels), but they were really good.  And the move away from the general cliches in genre reminded me a lot of GRRM and Guin

I hate Game of Thrones.

But only because Geoffrey is a doucher^2.

I'm reading the Gaunts Ghosts Series ATM.


Ciaphas Cain is next on my list.

I'm thinking about starting to read some of the Drizzt Books I haven't read yet (I stopped after the first Hunters Blade Trilogy Book. Like a Boss!

I'll probably read some of Orson Scott Card's books because I read Ender's Game right before I started Gaunts Ghosts.

ender's game is a pretty awesome read.  The rest of the series gets mixed reviews, though I enjoyed them, up to children of the mind

I'll have to recommend all of Castaneda's books. The only one I haven't read is Journey to Ixtlan.

Those books taught me so much about perception, what dreams are, what the psychedelic experience has to do with living in this universe and what living in this universe has to do with me.

Don't forget to recapitulate!

Well I just finished reading Carlos Castaneda's Tales of Power, it was really intense, I think it is my second favorite Castaneda book so far, behind The teachings of Don Juan. It really made me think about perception, the way you just look at life, or the many ways you can view thangs, just like you said Nanook.

I am starting On The Road by Jack Kerouac right naow

weird, the first pic disappeared.

it was a picture of the cover art for The Wheel of Time, Book Three: The Dragon Reborn. the other picture is the cover for Book Four: The Shadow Rising.

i was curious if anyone would recognise it, but this place moves so slow.
