Yes, she was cited for plagiarism in her fanfiction, and someone still published her. IMO, once a plagiarist, always a plagia..."

Gah! And people still rave about her stuff. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole!

1218 I thought Cassandra Clare was a plagiarist.

I'm just starting In the Garden of Iden. Just finished Daughter of the Empire and an audio version of This Body of Death, by Elizabeth George. Both were excellent.

1218 I like Tana French, too! Am currently reading The Name of the Wind, and am listening to Post Captain. Both are pretty good so far.

1218 Oh, I LOVED this book. Listened to it in audio. Each section by a different reader. What a powerful beautifully written story.

You have mentioned many of my favorite authors. I too loved this book, Lahni.

I don't believe anyone's mentioned C.J. Cherryh who writes great science fiction and fantasy. Her Foreigner series is absolute addictive.

Carol Berg is another outstanding GR author. Her Lighthouse Duo and her Rai Kirah series are absolutely wonderful.

And Janny Wurts' prose is something I could die happy reading. Her Wars of Light and Shadow series is rich, deep, thoughtful, and psychologically true. It's also filled with action and suspense.

I have many other favorite authors who are not fantasy writers, but recently I've been engrossed in that world.

1218 I won The Way of Kings and read and reviewed it. I wouldn't have read it if it hadn't been free, and on the whole, thought it was way too much hype about not much at all. All it did was introduce the characters and the world. The characters were very thin, and the most developed ones were trite and well worn. The rules of the culture were never explained and were frustratingly arbitrary. I was glad I didn't pay for the book!

1218 I'm reading and thoroughly enjoying my second Dunnett book - Queens' Play. I'm starting CryoBurn on my Nook, and in audio am starting The Pillars of the Earth. Here is my November Shelf to see what I've already finished this month.

1218 After reading your posts, I'm glad I didn't tackle this one. This is such an intensely emotional subject that I would be infuriated to read an account that lacks depth, as it sounds that this one did.

Yay! And just in time for my credits! I've already downloaded it.

1218 I'm lovin' it!

1218 Ha! I had it downloaded before you knew it was there, Janny! Already listened to 1 7/8 hr! Fantastic.

1218 Well I'm less than 100 pages in, but so far am not too impressed with writing style, etc. Does anyone know if there were hot rollers in 1942? The story itself promises to be good.

Ok, will do. I'm reading it for the last month's selection. I'm a month behind, though.

I just got a Nook and can definitely relate to the temptation of being able to buy a book whenever you want it! I've made a resolution to read all the ones I've got already before buying any more. I had purchased a paperback of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet before I bought the Nook, so tried to read it today, but the print's so small I just couldn't do it. Gave it to a woman at work and bought it again for my Nook! Shame, shame.

1218 I like it fine! I bought it instead of the Kindle because someone on another thread linked to an article on CNN rating the three and Nook was rated best.
