Ok. Contemporary fantasy:
R. Scott Bakker: The Darkness That Comes Before
First of a trilogy (The Prince of Nothing). Stunning work !!!
Yes, simply stunning. It will make you read all three.
I hadn't hear of this author, or this book, or this series, but it sounds interesting.
Is it just me, or is Canadian genre literature going through a really strong period?
"Prince of Nothing" site: http://www.princeofnothing.com
I've not really been interested in any other Canadian lit in the fantasy/sci-fi arena.
But Canada is certainly strong in the Margaret Atwood type directions.
