The Prince of Nothing trilogy by R. Scott Bakker is one I always recommend to people. In terms of world building (history as well) I have yet to read anything that comes close to the amount of detail he goes into. You'll also notice A LOT more philosophy than you would expect from a fantasy series. It's really been hit or miss with people I suggest it to. Definitely worth a read. Another cool aspect is that he is currently working on another trilogy that takes place in the same world as PoN twenty years later. I personally love his books and find them to be well worth the brainpower required to read them.

The Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson is another awesome series that actually does kinda come close in scope to PoN's world building. Now that I sit and ponder, it might even surpass PoN, as MBotF clocks in around nine or ten books if I recall correctly. Great characters abound. Also well worth the read. Long, long books though.

...and if you havent read Frank Herbert's Dune series...do that too. Just stay away from the ****e his son wrote in that same universe.

I've heard a lot of good things about Glenn Cooks' The Black Company. Has anyone read it or the series as a whole?

First Look at Game of Bones, the X-Rated Version of Westeros [NSFW!]
We've got a long wait until Game of Thrones returns next March... but fear not! Episodes of Game of Bones, the porn parody from director Lee Roy Myers, will start appearing on the Web in just a couple of weeks. (Including a female Joffrey!) We've got the first exclusive teaser and cast photos, plus an interview with Myers.

Scroll down to see cast photos for Game of Bones: Winter is Cumming, which debuts its first episode on WoodRocket.com on Oct. 25. Not pictured, according to Myers, are "pornified" versions of Varys, Tyrion Lannister, Jorah Mormont, and King Joffrey, "played by a legal-aged female."

Haha. I'm surprised that took this long...

In other news I picked up a couple bottles of Ommegang "Take the Black" beer the other day. Saving them for the return of the show.

Yeah, I've read the whole series. I'd give it a B+ with higher grades for the first two or three books. Kind of like Wagon Train (with a core group of major characters and fluctuating lesser cast) - that is - if the Wagon Train was really a bunch of hardened mercenaries. Pretty good collection of villains and enough magic to make things tactically interesting.

I'm expecting it next winter. How can you release a book called "Winds of Winter" in Spring or Summer?

Football and freaking politics. I bet if someone cut off his cable and internet he would get the book out a year earlier.

Na, I am all for locking him in a room with a typewriter. I need to know how the story ends. And hear it from Martin, not some plan B writer that picks up the story after he kicks.

I am glad I started reading WOT after Jordan passed. I probably would have lost it otherwise.

Martin doesn't seem to be joking when he says he doesn't want anyone to continue his novels if he kicks it before they are finished. I would be very upset if HBO was the conduit that finished it.

I disagree. He wrote a massively successful series where he is being paid handsomely. I think he has an obligation to finish the story to the best of his abilities. If these were just novels on his website that anyone could read I would feel differently.

I will check them out.

You should read Promise of Blood (The Powder Mage Trilogy) by Brian McClellan next. I bet you will like them.
