Recommended to John by: I actually found these myself
Read in January, 2009, read count: 1

I don't know how he does it. Every book gets better (with the possible exception of book 2 - Deadhouse Gates - which was the best in my opinion). Thousands of years of history is baked into these novels. I've never seen such a fully realized world (worlds?). He must have done an incredible amount of work on it before he even started writing.
The action is exceptional. The sense of humor marvelous and with excellent timing. And when the story gets down and dirty, Erikson shows no mercy.
And in the end, he leaves me with many more questions. Like a good episode of Lost. :)

He is quickly becoming my favorite author.
