Oh yes. Guy Gavriel Kay is one for me. Tim Powers too. Both are so
intense I have to be feeling a specific way to want that intensity. Neil
Gaiman's _Sandman_ books too. At the other end of this are books that are
so "light" I have to be in that sort of frivolous (or, alternatively,
flu-induced stupor) mood to really enjoy them, like Robert Asprin or any of
the authors on my low-quality-fiction list.
But DWJ, and Terry Pratchett, I can read any time. Also _Perilous Gard_,
_The Moon is a Harsh Mistress_, _Promised Land_, _Dream Park_. If I'm ever
not in the mood for one of these, either I'm ill or I've read too much of
one thing and am overloaded on it....
