I guess I never really got the fantasy around Harry Potter. People standing the whole night in a huge line outside a bookstore just to buy a book (at least it happened here in uk).

By the way, I can recommend you "The Chronicles of Narnia" from C S Lewis. Seven books, great stories. Don't let Disney's crapy film think it's a bad series.

McCormick I read Narnia when i was little they were the first story books i ever read. They were great stories. I also enjoy J.R.R Tolkien's Hobbit and Lotr. I apreciate the stories of Narnia but it is based of belief that has no bearing over me i just can't relate to the children in the series. but Harry Potter did something different Instead of making a fantasy story Rowling made a story that we can all relate to. and then added on top of it the mystery of Hogwarts. if Harry Potter was a story about a normal boy growing up in similar circumstances triumphing over his abusive family and choosing good over evil it would still be an amazing series. That is the true magic of the harry potter the characters grab you and you love them and hate them as if they were real people.

If you havnt read them i strongly recomend them. They will be remembered as one of the greatest Fantasy series right up there With the Hobit.

I remember doing that kind of thing too. My friends and I would wait outside the door for hours getting all psyched up over a movie or rock concert we wanted to see. The concerts were the most fun of all. Sometimes we didn't have tickets, so we would hang around side entrances and service doors waiting for some rent-a-cop or janitor to feel sorry for us. They always did! \:D

Much love,
Larry

Sniff, sniff, do I smell Science fiction! How about some totally legal, totally free books! Ok here we go, first go over to Baen Free Library This is the start of Jim Baen's experiment of giving away the first of a series of books, so you would be come hooked on them and buy the rest of the series. There are a lot of good books in here.

Now that I have your attention, come on over to baencd. Jim Baen did another crazy thing, at the end of a series, in the last hard back book he started putting CD's with all the series on it, and he had the gall to say that you can copy and give the cd to anyone you want for free, no strings attached! when you click on a link, you can ether download the whole CD, or each book! Hot damn that just about covers all the Baen Books, super star writers. For the last ten years or so. Unfortunately Jim Baen has passed away, and so far the new editor has not continued the practice so far.
How about some of us older guys who cut our teeth on books from the golden years of scifi? Yep I got some free stuff for you also. Go on over to Project Gutenberg collection at Project Gutenberg you can find any book that is in the public domain. But being that I am a die hard scifi fan lets go to the Science Fiction (Bookshelf) Here you can find books from the grand old masters of Science Fictions. When they extended the copyright laws to 75 years after the death of the Arthur I thought that all was lost for a while. But the people at Gutenberg found a legal loop hole, some of the old great scifi magazines the copyrights were not renewed, which means that all of the short story's and books that came is three or more parts are in the public domain! So Gutenberg is wiping them out. one of my long time favorite authors is H. Beam Piper, You can read his "Little Fuzzy" and fall for them all over again, I also like his "The Cosmic Computer".
So take care, and have fun reading!
Clifford

Try the Kingmaker Kingbreaker series and The Godspeaker trilogy, both by Karen Miller. Those are in my top ten for sure.
Phantom of the Opera by Susan Ray is good too.
