I love the urban fantasy books by Charles de Lint, Jim Butcher, and Patricia Briggs.
"The Deed of Paksennarrion" is a really good fantasy book by Elizabeth Moon.
Occasionally I'll read something like "Armor" or "Starship Troopers" and similar military science fiction books.

Thank you for posting! I'd forgotten about Charles de Lint, which is really sad since I loved the three books by him that I've read. I should see if I can find more of his books.

I have almost every book de Lint has written. I have yet to be disappointed. I highly recommend his latest book, "Promises to Keep". It's actually set before almost all of his other books, and provides a great entry point to his Newford setting.

I, too, am a huge reader, 3 or more a week, so thank Heaven for Libraries! I seldom re-read, and read most types of books, romance excepted (just way too predictable). Magazines have been letting me down lately. But my vice is murder mysteries. Love them. Especially McCall Smith's, but really, there are few authors of crime fiction I don't like. I also love memoirs of not-famous people who lived through interesting times and situations.

I can't believe I forgot deLint and Butcher. Patricia Briggs is really nice, have met her at a couple of Cons.
