    A series of books that I've enjoyed, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, is the Gaunt's Ghosts series written by Dan Abnett.

    I am almost done with George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones). He has 5 books completed. They are long, though, and maybe too chick friendly for most guy readers. I watch the tv show, but I'm not getting blind-sided again after the "Red Wedding" episode last season.


    The books are very entertaining, though. Lots of twists of fate, imperfect heroes, sex, blood, magic and weirdness. People compare it to Tolkein, but I never got past the first 10 pages of The Hobbit, because it was difficult to understand. Martin's writing style is much easier to follow.

    I wanted to tackle that book series but I have to be really in the mood for what I like to call Dungeons and dragons type books, I like sci-fi with a military angle to it and stephen king books

    I finish A Dance With Dragons back in July. Really enjoyed all the books in A Song Of Fire And Ice. The wait for The Winds of Winter is killing me! I started 3 other series since then. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, waiting for the next book due out in March. Completed the Mistborn trilogy, also by, Sanderson. Then 2 days ago I started The Malazan Book Of The Fallen by Steven Erikson. Hopefully by the time I finish this series (15 books), we'll at least have a release date.

    All the books I mentioned I would recommend to any Sci Fi, Epic Fantasy fans BTW. My all time favorite of this genre is The Wheel Of Time series by Robert Jordan (finished by Brandon Sanderson). I was actually depressed when that series finally ended.
