My local library has only three Glen Cook books, from "Instrumentalities of the night."
I may try one next time I go there.
I'm currently re-reading vast amounts of Pratchett and Alastair Reynolds, and my current book is "And another thing," part 6 of 3 from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer.
ES nice to know that someone else is dragging the chain as well. I'm half-way through TWWDAL, enjoying every minute of it. I thought that OOOTIM was good but the spark wasn't quite there for me. Looking forward to Quarkbeast.
I just dived into Quarkbeast over lunch and it's a lot of fun! Some of the Thursday books are setup/bridges for the others and it's just a case of knowing which are which. It doesn't mean that any of them are bad though! (Awaits lynching.)
TWWDAL is quite excellent. I'm two thirds into it and it's definitely a story and not setup for the story to come in the following book. It has also reversed some of the debatable things in FAS. <grins>
"The Long Earth" seemed to me to have a LOT more Baxter than Pratchett in it. I had much trouble with my normally easy "suspension of disbelief" with this book, but I still want to read "The Long War."
Still haven't read TWWDAL.
Just discovered David Brin, with "Existence." Enjoyed it immensely. Must read his two trilogies.
I strongly recommend TWWDAL. (I suppose that is no surprise on this Fforum!) I think that my problem with "The Long Earth" was the same as MC's: it felt like too much Baxter, not enough Pratchett. I also want to read "The Long War", which is why I am going to try again.
According to a radio interview with the pair of them, they have signed to do another 3.
