Do read some of his other works as well! He's a really good writer and as a
bonus, all his books are standalones and not part of some trilogy or other.
_Passion Play_ was the first book I read by him (and the first he wrote) and
it really impressed me. After that I've bought all his books (well I don't
have Galveston yet, but soon...).

Yes, it would have been horrible if that book had ended in a cliffhanger. I
think she's almost finished (or at least written quite a lot on) the next
Miles book, and will start on the second "Chalion" book afterwards.

It's a bit harder to find good old fantasy here, because there isn't that
much of it in circulation and naturally most people don't want to part with
their own copies.

I started watching it when the first season aired here, but watched it
sporadically. I wasn't really hooked until Season 2 and now I'm totally
addicted =).
