Okay, so I just finished all of the Dresden files books by Jim Butcher and I'm lookin for a new series to start on. I'm gonna read Joe Posnanski's The Soul of Baseball about Buck O'Neil as a holdover until I can get The Gypsy Morph from my library. But I'd really like to try a new series. Has anyone read Butcher's new series? Recommendations? Series I have read are any of Tad Williams(Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn and Otherland are some of my all time faves), Robin Hobb, Terry Brooks, Janny Wurts, Wheel of Time(blew through the first 6 but lost interest), Sword of Truth(same as Wheel of Time), Donaldson's Covenant books, and a few others I can't remember. ANYWAY, anyone out there have any suggestions?
If you like Buck o'Neil you should really read his autobiography "I was right on time". It is a wonderful book full of lots of stories. Since you seem to enjoy some baseball I assume most sports are game so I would also recommend anything by John Feinstein especially "Next Man Up".

Thanks for the suggestions. I have read Eddings, loved the Dark Tower though a little let down by the last part of the finale, and read A Song of Fire and Ice through A Storm of Swords. For whatever reason I've never been able to really get into A Feast for Crows. I have trouble with that when there is a long delay between books. Anyone know where I can find a good synopsis of the first three?
I like the idea that he's creating his own hero origin story. He orphans himself like Superman and Batman and avenges loved ones as those cited in Women in Refrigerators (unheardtaunts.com) to adopt the sad/angry hero pose.
