Hm. I have to admit to rather liking Feist, though it did take me a long
time to get to reading "Magician", because I just couldn't take a book
seriously in which the main character was named Pug. :-) And my favourite
of his stuff is the "Empire" trilogy, which he wrote in collaboration with
Janny Wurts (a writer whose solo books I cannot stand).
So go fig.
