Works of literature worth frothing over (or avoiding like the pox).

I'm a big fan, and have been since being introduced to The Blade Itself. Heroes is one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read. And one of the best novels set in and around a single battle as well.

I recently read Half a War. That series has been fun as well.

The bad thing is that as I finished the book, I decided to give this iBooks thing a go. Did you know you can just download books at the touch of a button and start reading them immediately? Damn clever this new technology. Now starting 'Last Argument of Kings' - my painting time is fucked and my bank balance may be going the same way.

The bald chimp was the one who got me hooked on Abercrombie as well.
