I'm embarrassed to admit how I discovered his books, but I'll excuse it in
advance by saying that I was young (in the seventh grade, I think):

I was a huge Piers Anthony fan (or, more accurately, Xanth), and was
looking for other light fantasy. And Jhereg was packaged very much as a
light fantasy novel (not that the fact that he was an assassin wasn't
mentioned, but the cover and back of the book made it look like it was a
pretty light-hearted world). Nearly twenty years later, I've long lost any
enthusiasm for Anthony, but am still enjoying Steve's books.

As for the list, Laurel posted about it in her Livejournal. I'm afraid
it's been years since I had the patience to sift through Usenet.
