Steven Erikson

Just hanging out on amazon this evening. Steven erikson is the creator of the completed Malazan Book of the Fallen series. The only book in the series that I read from end to end was the 2nd Deadhouse Gates. I'll tell you that he is one of the great prose writer's I have ever crossed. I will also tell you that he has created a universe so dense that it makes LOTR seem childish, and George R R Marin's A song of Ice and Fire's violence, also childish in comparison.

I can't truly recommend him, but in studying good writing, he is a must.
