    A tie! well, that is a surprise…. And probably a good one because Leckie is not finished snagging awards yet for Ancillary Justice (I think she’ll get the Hugo).

      I think so, too, though I am wary of the mobilizing power of the WoT camp.

          Wheel of Time. You said you think Leckie will take the Hugo, too.

            Ah, I loved the Wheel of Time series when I was a kid. But got tired of having to wait three years before the next book (and of course, then having to reread all 7 earlier novels to catch up again on the plot). And then he died so I quit waiting for the next one….
            I think I read the first ten or eleven. And, the first 5 or 6 at least three times each. Loved these types of fantasy series as a kid.

            They are boring as an adult. Nearly ripped out my eyeballs this summer and finally ditched it in the middle of the 3rd book.

            I thought I would love it. But there was a time when my tastes were not nearly so discerning… Shannara. I used to love the epic stuff, no matter how bad it was.

            I hated Shannara — I tried to read it at the same point in my life, not sure what bothered me so much about it. AND, I tried to read Terry Goodkind’s Wizard’s First Rule — quit that mid books. And L.E. Modesitt, Jr’s The Saga of Recluce series — quit that as well. So, apparently I had some rational to judge them. Enjoyed Tad William’s To Green Angel Tower as well… Hmm, I don’t think I like Tolkein ripoffs — a la elves/wizards etc very much.

            That was my main motivation. I wanted anything similar to Tolkein.
