Originally published in Wyrmtongue February 2003.

Star Trek: Ishmael - Barbara Hambly

An excellent novel - I believe that this deserves a place on a GCSE English Literature reading list, but it will never get the recognition it deserves because it's a media tie-in.

Quantum Leap: Angels Unaware - L. Elizabeth Storm

Basically, if you liked the series, you'll love this book. If you didn't see many episodes, you won't see what the fuss is about. A great story, with a real tear-jerker ending.

Mort - Terry Pratchett

The first Pratchett novel I read, and still one of the best. It is largely focussed on Death, one of the best characters in the Discworld, which also helps.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J. K. Rowling

I really liked the character of Sirius Black, and this gave a new depth to the ongoing story.

A Civil Campaign - Lois McMaster Bujold

The first of the Vorkosigan series that I read, and I wound up taking a 5 hour lunch break because I couldn't put it down; it also motivated me to read the rest of the series.
