I was at my bro's house the other week and saw he is reading that book you told me about, I think it was Mistborn. So I'll borrow it from him and check it out.

Sorry, I have no recommendations as you know I mostly read non-fiction.

I'm looking for some new scifi tv shows.

can't recommend enough the Hyperion series by dan simmons. not only some the best sci-fi i've ever read but some of the best books I've ever read. F*cking amazing. Also, anything by frank herbert (obligatory,) The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Heinlen. The other Ender's Game books are also great.

Stuff by Neil Gaiman is really good: American Gods, Everwhere, and Smoke and Mirrors (short story collection) Are the ones I've read. It's all fantasy.

My favorite fantasy series is the 'Song of Ice and Fire' by George RR Martin.

I have really enjoyed his stuff and he not afraid to kill of main characters which is refreshing...

Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan like SmootsD suggested.

Brandon Sanderson is penning the final book since Jordan passed away after a long illness before he could put the story to paper. This is turning into a 3-part finale and the series is 12 books (written by Jordan). RJ recited the ending to the series to his wife/editor and a few other family members/close friends before he died and his wife selected Brandon Sanderson to pen the close of the saga. The first of the final three books is now published.

I would highly recommend this series as it's my all time favorite. Another series to consider is the Thomas Covenant series by Stephen Donaldson. I would recommend either of these two authors!

Anything by Dan Abnett. However, I recommend "Gaunt's Ghosts" first.

My personal favorites are Empire of the East, and the Legion of Videssos. Videssos is about part of a Roman legion being transported to another world in which Magic is far stronger than in ours. It was written Harry Turtledove, and the world they are transported to bears a lot of similiarities to the eastern roman empire after the split, except with magic. Turtledove majored or minored in Byzantine studies, so he knows a lot about the period. Empire of the East is a future world (maybe ours) that is devastated by a near nuclear war in which a few bombs go off. Somehow this makes magic stronger, and wizards arise thousands of years afterward. I think it was what the Book of Swords was based on.
