Merlin of Chaos

Hey, Just asking for some suggestion for some Fantasy book, be it by Terry Pratchet (As in, Chaotic literature) or anyone else, doesn't really matter, I wanna read something and boggle my mind :P

But my needs are either Chaotic or something very Deep with a whole universe and alot of character interactivity and perhaps some fights but not too neccessary.

Thanks, or how someone from this forum would put it in his anti-hello term (But here I'm refering to my thanks) - UnThanks.
I don't know if this signature fits me, but I guess I'll have to try:

wheel of time. a bit tough to get into and slow on the buildup, but it's heavy, with dozen sof 'main' charachters, probaly a hundred or more named minor charachters, and a tnagled web of itnrgiue, relations andrivalry(etc and so on) politics and relgion intermingle and ar erepsented withotu saying so outright, deep rich cultures clash. i receomend it to anyone, even a moran liek j00!

The Tale of the Five by Diane Duane...there's 3 out of 4 books done so far, the first one's "The Door Into Fire" but the story really gets rolling in book 2, "The Door Into Shadow." Very realistic worlds and characters...trippy magic stuff too.

Time Enough for Love - Robert A Heinlein

It's the story of a 2,000 year old man named Lazarus Long. Lazarus is tired and he wants to die, but he's captured by some of his descendants who talk him into a Shahrzadelike scheme of storytelling to postpone death. Long tells them stories of his many adventures while they try to rejuvenate him and send on another adventure - this one to his own past.
just like in a dream
you'll open your mouth to scream
and you won't make a sound

you can't believe your eyes
you can't believe your ears
you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

geez rog  that was so funny i lost my thought as to what i was going to put...



R.A. Salvatore any of his serieses are great reads....but Dzz`t is the shit when it comes to cool characters..
Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mold-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of "the rat race" is not yet final.

Steven Erikson. Or George R. R. Martin. Neither of these are my favorite writers, but they're both good and fit the bill. I think Erikson is a little better.
(MY favorites are Gene Wolfe, John Crowley, China Mieville, M John Harrison, Guy Gavriel Kay, stuff like that. The real wackos like Paul Park are sometimes fun too.)

Martin can either finish the Dance of Dragons series, or kiss my ass.

Ayo. I already forgot the stuff in the ones that are out so far, and who knows if I'll feel up to rereading them so I can get into the new one coming up.

with sidecar.

That's the prime reason why I mostly read old stuff that's been done for years (and ignore all efforts to turn them into franchises). I quit on the Robert Jordan, Eddings, and then-TSR stuff 10 years ago.
