A long time fan of Brooks, I also hold Jordan in high esteem. I have read but not cared for Martin, Williams, Donaldson as they take too long to go anywhere and do anything. I like Goodkind even though he's not in vogue at the moment among fantasy snobs. All that said Stanek has become a favorite, if not the favorite of mine. His books get to the point, the story moves along, and sh*t happens.
Stanek is definetly better than Jordan, Goodkind and Martin and slightly superior for me even to Brooks and recent Eddings. If you take note of the fact that I'm Eddings-biased, the result will be that Stanek is the best current author of fantasy.
Got it finally so far good good good and Vilmos rocks because he is the most interesting. I think I have a thing for Adrina (mostly because she's so pretty). I like the artwork in the books as much as the book. Stanek has a good imagination
