    Also, I often find that people over hyper authors. I'm currently reading The Shining for the first time and every time that I read a SK novel, all I can think is that this guy is easily in my top five. Admittedly I've only read Pet Sematary, Carrie and Salem's Lot (plus half of The Shining), so maybe I've just been reading his better books?

    IT and Cujo up next I think.

    Just a friendly suggestion.
    You might want to pass on IT for the time being and read The Stand. By the time you finish IT you may be tired of his writing and it would be a shame for you to miss out on one of his best books. I mean, he basically created a new genre with it.

    I loved both books, but The Stand is the only novel of its size I ever read in one sitting.

    His Troy trilogy is the only one of Gemmell's works I've read, though I own Legend so I intend to correct this one day, but I really enjoy this series (it's actually a re-read for me since I first read them about 8-10 years ago as a teen). I give it a pretty high recommendation as someone who enjoys seeing a good redo on the Trojan War mythos.

    I always enjoyed the mythos too, so it is definitely on my list.

    Regarding Drenai, I think they all good and personally I would read them in publication order, but Waylander is my favourite by far. That book was one of my entries into fantasy reading and although there is probably some level of rose tinted glasses as a result, I do think that it is exceptional. If you're into adaptations, I have graphic novel adaptations of Legend and Wolf in the Shadows. The former is pretty good but I haven't read the latter yet as I still need to read those books.

    I really like practically all his fantasy novels.

    I’d place Legend as mid-table in my own league table of Gemmell books...but much better than most fantasy from other writers.

    I was going to recount one reason why it’s a real favourite for many fans...but then realised it would effectively be a spoiler.
