My favorite works in science fiction and fantasy are standalone novels, but there are still many great series to choose from. I'll give it a shot. These are what I enjoyed the most, not what I think are the most well written. I assume short stories count.
- The Lord of the Rings (even if you count the main trilogy as one book, I'm including the Hobbit and the other related works)
- Gormenghast (which was never completed, unfortunately)
- The Hitchhiker books
- New Sun
- Chronicles of Amber
- Moorcock's "End of Time"
- Fafhrd & The Grey Mouser
- The Black Company
- Dying Earth
- Demon Princes
- Faded Sun
There are a lot more I like (and even more I think are, at least, decent), but these stand out.
It's Always Sunny is one of the better American comedies in recent years and is generally an excellent show, but Seinfeld pretty much changed my life and how I view things. I'm all for difference of opinion and all that, and I can understand some of the newer generation not getting it, but I just can't see eye to eye with anyone who actively dislikes the show.
It's the internet. It has nothing to do with being comic book fans (in fact comic book fans seem to be a lot more respectful compared to a few other "nerdy" fandoms). Though, that being said, this place does seem to attract a lot of internet tough guys compared to other comic book forums, which is why I don't really post here as much as I used to. I guess that's the price of popularity.
I'm an atheist, but I'm mostly just apathetic towards religion. I don't care what religion people belong to as long as they don't let it interfere with things such as scientific research and don't force their beliefs on other people.
