Is anybody here a David Gemmell fan? I love his books. Heroic Fantasy, for all who don't know of him.
I recommend any fantasy fans to pick up any of his books, 'Legend' is a good starter, his most famous book. It's really great. Just re-read it recently, had forgotten how much I love his writing.
He is really quite good at characters, some fantasy writers invloving action and warriors sometimes forget the character is also a person and not just a killing machine. Gemmell delves in and seaches the character's memories, experiences, feelings...everything.
