Waiting for the next book from George RR Martin?
Looks like it's going to be a while, so what should you read in the meantime? Martin himself has some suggestions:

I often suggest authors Patrick Rothfuss, Tad Williams and Robin Hobb. I am personally not a big fan of the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series, but I also suggest it to readers.

What about you? What would you recommend?

John | 105 comments I too would suggest Patrick Rothfuss and Robin Hobb, but I'd also suggest the Belgariad series by David Eddings. Great characters, story, and a dose of humor make it compulsively readable.

The Black Company books by Glen Cook are good for readers who like the dark grittiness of Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series.

Those are good suggestions. I haven't read Glen Cook yet, but will add him to my very large TBR pile. I have also been thinking that CS Friedman might be another author fans might like. Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series too, (though she isn't for everyone) and how could I forget Brandon Sanderson?!

Oh, if you like Anne Bishop, try the Crown of Stars books by Kate Elliott. Not as racy, but a similar style of fantasy.
