My Shelf Confessions has a new interview with Jacqueline Carey, bestselling author of Autumn Bones (Canada, USA, Europe). Here's a teaser:
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with series fantasy. I love it when I love it – but there is so much out there – that it can be intimidating to start a series that already has 10 books in it. Do you read much series fantasy? What are some of your favorites?
While I try to stay current in the genre, I don’t get as much chance to read for pleasure as I’d like. Guy Gavriel Kay is a favorite I often recommend to fans of my Kushiel’s Legacy series for his use of history and mythology. In terms of urban fantasy, I’ve enjoyed Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series, although I suspect I’m not up to date. An old favorite that I consider underrated, and that first showed me that me fantasy could be written in a lyrical style, is Patricia McKillip’s Riddlemaster of Hed trilogy.
