Oh, definitely! _Valhalla_, too. Tom Holt is brilliant. I just got my very
own copies of _Olympiad_, _The Walled Orchard_, and _Alexander at the
World's End_. Not fantasy, but tremendously enjoyable.
Love the Fantasy Masterworks edition of _The Complete Enchanter_ too: Harold
Shea's lunatic adventures through Norse, Finnish and Irish mythology, the
worlds of Spenser's _Faerie Queen_ and Ariosto's _Orlando Furioso_.
Extremely cool stuff!
