We'll probably get the LeGuins and the Strugatsky. Not sure about the Clarke - I read it in my teens (as did Paul) - I recall it being tolerable, but Paul's comment was 'no thanks'.

I think I read the LeGuins years ago, and probably owned them, but they're not in my library now. I suspect they came from whichever library I was using at the time. Given all these are from Victor Gollancz, this is very likely.

Incidentally, Smashwords have their end of year sale on at the moment. As per usual, there’s nothing earthshaking - it’s all too reminscent of Kindle Unlimited offerings (or should that be effusions). I’m just filling a few holes - mostly from Doranna Durgin and Lee Killough. DD has some good deals going, especially on her fantasies.

I think I got to #7 or #8 before abandoning. I had the same issues with it as I did with the Belgariad/Mallorean. Mind you, it started well but Jordan couldn’t bring things to a satisfying conclusion unlike Eddings (plus Rand started as a more mature character than that whiny brat Garion).

I bailed on #6 even though I had #7!
