This is annoying. Really annoying. Tad William's Otherland quartet is something you won't be able to get me to shut up about. Nor is Garth Nix's Abhorsen trilogy Or Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy (do not be fooled by the movie! The books are awesome! But I go and purchase one of their other books expecting the same calibre of epic storytelling and... bleh. The disappointment lies thick in my mouth like glue. I mean, some authors manage to carry themselves consistently enough (Matt Reilly, Ken Akumatsu, Terry Pratchett) but some. Egh =( What authors can you think of that you find are either on/off or awesome 24/7?
