While attending FenCon (http://www.soldak.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1617), I was sitting in the bar with Rachel Caine (yes, The Rachel Caine!) and listening to her talk about some books she read recently and loved. I made a mental note to find these books. Sometime later, I wondered what other books have my favorite writers loved. What I would pay to know what books Elizabeth Moon, Octavia Butler and Margaret Weis found exceptional!

Okay, so at this time I'm not comparable to any of those amazing authors, however I do have a lot of fiction out in the 'verse. If you like my fiction, maybe you'd like to know the books (and other genre things) I love. Not like, but absolutely love. I've put them in my links (http://www.soldak.com/Delilah/Links.html) section. I plan to add more sections (comics and games) and also keep it updated regularly.

If you really enjoy my fiction, I want to know what books you love! Why? Because I'll probably love them too. :) Even if you don't love my work, you've probably know about interesting books that haven't come to my attention and... I want to know! It's share time.
