Damn forgot Douglas Hulik and Mark Lawrence. Read them, they're good.

While I love the please recommend me a book thread as much as the next poster, you haven't given us much to go on here!  Why not read Morningstar by David Gemmil? A really enjoyable read.

What about Michael Sullivan's Riyria Revelations?

Yes it is. 5 books out so far though, and they aren't small. Plus 3 Dunk & Egg stories.

Dave Duncan's The King's Blades is brilliant but not very talked about around here. (As far as I know)

I haven't heard of that one before, but it certainly does sound good. Yet another to add to my TBR list ;D (because, you know, it was looking kinda sparse ;) )

If your pile was under three digits then it needed some fillin' ,but yeah they are brilliant books. One of the authors that made me decide to begin writing actualy.
