Nifty Books

All of the below are cool.

Vernor Vinge, A Fire in the Deep. The thinking man's science fiction.

Garth Nix, Sabriel. Younger but still quite clever fantasy.

Michael A. Stackpole, X-Wing: Rogue Squadron. Excellent characters.

Glen Cook, The Black Company. Somewhat dark, but very human.

Diane Duane, So You Want To Be A Wizard?. At fault for all my strange morality.

Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon. Unusual but well-thought-out dragons.

Larry Niven, The Integral Trees. The title is a pun!

Terry Pratchett, The Colour of Magic. Different style than his later ones, but a good intro.

Harry Turtledove, The Misplaced Legion. The Byzantine Empire, with magic, and Romans.
