This is a boring post--don't read

Just for my own records, here's a list of books I've made that are at our public library that I want to read.  Some of them are early books in series--if I like book one, the rest of the series will likely fall into place as well.
  • Shadow in Summer by Daniel Abraham
  • Sweet Silver Blues by Glen Cook (I've been wanting to read this for a while, and actually our library has the anthology with the first three novels all in trade paperback format.)
  • Dhampir by Barb Hendee (I think Goodreads recommended this to me based on books I was reading already.)
  • The Darkness That Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker (no relation to Bob Bakker the dinosaur paleontologist.  I presume.)
  • Hounded by Kevin Hearne
  • Something From the Nightside by Simon R. Green (I've enjoyed his light-hearted Hawk & Fisher stories; this seems like it's probbaly somewhat forgettable, but right up my alley.)
  • The Devil You Know by Mike Carey
  • Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb (an author I've heard about for years but never read.)
  • The Hammer by KJ Parker
  • Shadow's Son by Jon Sprunk
And the following is not at our public library, but is available through ILL:
  • The Whitefire Crossing by Courtney Schafer

Too late. I read it.

Of those you list, I've only read The Darkness That Comes Before, but I think that (and the series that follows) is great.

I love most of Robin Hobb's stuff, with exception of the The Soldier Son trilogy.
