I consider Donaldson's The Gap series to be one of the best science fiction sagas ever written, and I encourage you to give it a shot if you haven't read it yet. It all begins in The Real Story (Canada, USA, Europe), which should be on your Christmas list! Used copies can be found for pennies. . .
Thanks to all the participants!
