This might be obvious but the Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolfe (Shadow of the Torturer...Claw of the al) is among my favorite fantasy/sf series. It's very different from PoN but it's equally intelligent and compelling. I recently reread the books and found new things I hadn't noted before. If you're interested in books outside the genre that have some similarities to PoN, Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian (Bakker uses a quote from it in introducing The Thousandfold Thought) is a phenomenal novel with the same kind of epic scale. And McCarthy's prose is incomparable. view post
