Thanks for this!  I mentioned on the 'What's everybody reading' post thread that I read his recommendations sometimes, and it's nice to have more from which to choose.  Time to go shopping!

Great list, thanks for posting Silver!

I haven't visited for quite a while, so it's nice to see that the site is still around and still providing great info from a dedicated fan base Smiley

I've only heard of and actually read one of those: "Lud-on-the-Mist." I saw it at the local used book store, and the cover called out to me...

Surprisingly, I didn't really like it that much, but I do think it stood out as unusual, and I can see it's appeal.

I've also read Lud-in-the-Mist, and I found it tough sledding, especially at the outset. It got better though (sure wish I could reference the 'she turned me into a newt' line from the Holy Grail here, but that was 'I' and not 'It'. <sigh>), and in the end I was content to have read it.
I have read one other off the list: C.S. Lewis' That Hideous Strength. When I was a kid, after reading the Narnia books, that Lewis trilogy beckoned and I read them all. It's been eons, and they were no Narnia (tough to overcome from a 10-year-old's point of view), but I recall enjoying them almost despite that.
