I recently finished Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks. I wanted to give the Culture series a try and really enjoyed it, even though it wasn't what I was expecting. Good combination of space conflicts and planetary action. 4 of 5. On the fantasy side I finished Orb Sceptre Throne by Ian C. Esslemont, the companion novels to The Malazan Book of the Fallen series. I thought Esslemont really got this book right vs the three before it. 5 of 5.

Basic Set Dungeons and Dragons What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? Basic Set Dungeons and Dragons I was first introduced to Hero with a short lived 6e Star Hero game. What are you currently playing/GMing? I'm currently running a Savage Worlds - Solomon Kane campaign (almost done after 6 years of ~monthly games). I'm going to run a Fantasy Hero campaign next in a homebrew setting that is heavily influenced by the Malazan Book of the Fallen. I'm currently playing a Pathfinder adventure path.
