It all started when I posted my interview with the author. Ever since my book review of Ysabel was posted, it continued. To my uttermost dismay, many people here don't know Guy Gavriel Kay!!! Sacrilege, I say!
No but seriously, Kay remains, in my opinion at least, one of the most underrated and underappreciated fantasy authors in the world today. So my consternation was replaced by a desire to raise awareness in a man who has been ranking among my favorite writers for years now. You know it's my sworn duty to help promote Canadian authors, so I pimp Canucks like Kay, Bakker and Erikson relentlessly!
If you haven't had the pleasure to read one of Guy Gavriel Kay's works yet, please do so ASAP! Heck, if my review of Ysabel did not intrigue you in the least, nothing I say or do will sway you. But if you've been reading about Kay on various message boards, and if you've seen his novels at your local bookstore, perhaps the time has come for you to give him a shot!;-)
Here are links to all of his books, so you can see what other people are saying about Kay. You may also want to check out www.brightweavings.com, his official website, where you'll find tons of information on Guy Gavriel Kay and his wonderful novels.
As for me, my personal favorites are Tigana, The Lions of Al-Rassan, and both volumes of The Sarantine Mosaic: Sailing to Sarantium and Lord of Emperors. I encourage you guys to check any of these titles out. Believe me, you'll be glad you did!
