If you want something outstanding to tide you over, go with Mistborn, by Brandon Sanderson.
Thanks for the review/recommendation. I think I'll skip "Black Company," then (not too into military tales right now), and will check out Mistborn.
Valanthe wrote:"Neverwhere" is an excellent read. I also can recommend Neil Gaiman's "American Gods". If you like your fantasy more humorous, try Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's "Good Omens". I've heard it described as The Omen meets Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which seems to be a fitting description. If you like that, you might want to try Pratchett's Discworld series. I've only read the first few novels, but they're fun.
Good to hear on "Neverwhere" -- headed to the book store later today and will pick it up (as well as check out the other recommendations you made -- thanks!)
