Favorite books :
Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, Tad William's Otherland, C.S. Friedman's Coldfire trilogy, George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, Frank Herbert's Dune, Raymond E. Feist's Midkemia books, R.A. Salvatore's earlier stuff, L.E. Modesitt, Jr. Timothy Zahn, Tolkien's LOTR books (I haven't read any other Tolkien stuff except The Hobbit *shame*), hmm...basically anything that involves swords, spaceships and dragons. I'm not too picky as long as it keeps me away from modern-day Earth for a few hours. Wow, that sounds so emo. But I'm not! At least, I hope not...
Favorite movies :
Being on a site for guitarists as I am, I feel obligated to say Spinal Tap.
