    I just bought 11 Gemmell books on Ebay, most of them in the Drenai series. They are next, after I finish with Stone of Tears. I also plan to read the later star wars books, including the New Jedi Order series.

    huntersblade trilogy - salvatore
    da vinci code
    angels and demons(the same writer as da vinci code)

    the rest of lotr(guess I'm not a read fantasy-fantast if I haven't read a them all)
    more books of terry pratchett - any suggestions?

    "The Well at the World's End" by William Morris, a 19th century mediaval romance, and I want to re-read Caiseal Mórs "Books of the Watchers" which to me are the best Celtic Fantasy novels.
