Y'know, I think Brust is the only one I follow religiously like this? Just
>from a glance over at my bookshelf.... Emma Bull--or rather, she might be if
I could find something other than _War for the Oaks_, which was absolutely
wonderful. I just finished off a couple of Philip K. Dick novels, and if the
rest turn out to be as addictive as _Flow My Tears..._ Heinlein is another
of the classic sci-fi authors that I love. David Eddings, but not really in
the normal sense; I'm a fan of the Belgariad/Malloreon and a couple of the
works attached to those (Belgarath/Polgara), but that's about it. Asimov's
Foundation series is excellent as well, at least so far as I've read it. Of
course there's also Barker, Lovecraft, and King's Dark Tower on my plate. :)
Then there's non-fiction... but I'm already rambling. ;)

who are constantly drunk on books, as other men are drunk on whiskey
or religion. They wander through this most diverting and stimulating
of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing nothing."
