Favorite fantasy authors: Raymond Feist

I'm not a compulsive fantasy reader. I judge fantasy by the same criteria I use for any writing, and I think a lot of it is pretty shoddy.

So it takes something pretty special to get me to read that sword and sorcery stuff. For me, Feist's work is as visceral, compelling, and creative as a lot of straight literature. His characters are believable, they grow (or rot) in realistic ways, and his plots surprise me.
