Michael, have you ever read the Drizzt Do'Urden series by R.A. Salvatore? I am currently cruising through them and I'm finding them to be a fun read. I see a lot of Hadrian and (post Hadrian's influence) Royce as well.
I do have you to thank for getting me into the fantasy genre and look forward to your upcoming works.

Hey Joshua, I've of course heard of Drizzt and Salvatore's work - but I've not read any of them (I'm sorry to say). In general, I write books that I want to read, so if you are seeing similarities between them and my work, then there is a good chance I'll like them. Going to move them up on my to be read pile now! Thanks for the tip.
