I need to read the orca book. It sounded quite good.

Best fantasy/scifi books read in the last year?

Steven Erikson - Dust of Dreams (reading Crippled God now)
John Scalzi - Lost Colony (last of Old Man's War)
Robert E. Howard - collected early Connan stories.
Jim Butcher - Storm Front
Orson Scott Card - parts of the Worthing Saga (some parts suck and seeing how it is a novel of mashed together short stories, I feel this counts)

Love Sanderson, but read the other ones in previous years and haven't finished Well of Ascension yet. I liked Fallon okay when I read Medallion, but not enough to finish that series. Butcher Rocks, glad to have been introduced to him. Lots of other good short stories. I need to finish Name of the Wind which comes highly recommended from some people from whom recommendations never fail to exceed expectations.
