Tiassa by Steven Brust

Tiassa is a bit disjointed in time, part of that is Brust is having fun with his writing, also there are characters that are not strictly bound by time.

For die hard Brust fans, or die hard Vlad fans (ME!) it is a must read.  If you don't know the characters or author I would suggest starting at the beginning or with Issola which is my personal favorite of the Vlad Taltos series.

Brust is a fan of Dumas, and the last third of this book is written in that style.

Steve also has one DVD he recorded, I found it amusing,  A Rose For Iconoclastes.

The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One by Patrick Rothfuss

If you read a lot of fiction, you know how hard it can be at times to find a good NEW book.  This book is the first new one I discovered in 2011.  It was published in 2007, first book in a new series.  The luck was with me, because book 2 was published in March of this year.

I only had to wait a couple of weeks after I finished the The Name of the Wind for The Wise Man's Fear to come out.
