    Just finished Red Inferno: 1945, an alternate history about the Russians attacking us as the Nazis collapse. Not bad.

    "The Gathering Storm" - Book 12 of the Wheel of Time. Stylistically very good, given that it was written by Brandon Sanderson from Robert Jordon's notes.

    My favorite series! But as you can see from my signature both Terry Goodkind and I are objectivists.

    {grins in sympathy} See my last comment in my previous post :eek:

    Oh and I came across this recently. It's a sort of video-wishlist of actors and actresses that a couple of fans think match their views of the main characters in the Wheel of Time. Some are spot on I have to say :D.
