Hmm. What to read when you're not reading Pratchett. Glen Cook and Barry Hughart I can see. But Robin Hobb, Barbara Hambly, and CJ Cherryh? I want some of what this guy is smoking, because maybe then Hobb and Hambly wouldn't read so flat-footed. "Our main criteria selection were books that were strong in: Worldbuilding, Characterization, and Language." 'And', guys, not 'or'. And as for Cherryh: the one thing Pratchett is *not*, ever, is obscure.
