    Hello everyone, I thought I'd try this forum out for help finding good novels. I'm a pretty picky reader so this will help a lot. I like to find out what other people like in novels, since I'm an amateur author myself. I've been writing since I was about 13. I've been published once when I was sixteen in a local contest when I won first place. Just recently I'm trying to recapture the enjoyment I felt writing before. Nice to meet you.

    Hello! Do you read/write a variety of genres?

    After the contest I've only written two drafts of one sci-fi short story so far. I just recently started back up. I like to read anything unusual. Plotlines too close to reality or too cliched can bore me. Mostly I read science fiction but I've read fantasy a lot and a little of almost all genres. I like Harry Turtledove.

    I've only read the first book in Turtledove's Hellenic Traders series. I enjoyed it but forgot to continue with the series. I'm into fantasy fiction myself but I usually stick to sword-and-sorcery fantasy (Terry Goodkind, Robert E. Howard) or urban fantasy (Jim Butcher, Seanan McGuire).
