I've only read the Fionavar Tapestry and the Tigana books, but I really loved
them when I read them. It was a couple of times some years ago. I haven't read
anything else by Kay simply because when I was reading these books I wasn't
keen on reading in any other language than Swedish (wasn't good enough in
English, that is) and I haven't found any other books by him at the library. 
Then it's all this about spending money... The English ones (by Kay) are all in
paperback and really expensive, and I don't want to buy them to read them...
Not when I can buy and read all DWJs books ;P.
