Kelly McCullough's WebMage, the first in a series, has the most original premise I've seen in a very long time. Plus the characters are likable and the action and wit abound. If you want to take a walk on the weird & wild side, read this book.
And Cybermancy, the next one! I'm NOT a sci fi or fantasy reader, but Kelly had me from the first page. And now I'm eagerly waiting for #3, due out this spring. Kimberly is right - creative, fast-paced, fun, imaginative - read this book!
I believe this is my friend Liz whom I met at the NEC conference. It's so great to see you here, and I hope your writing is going well. Drop me note here or via e-mail to let me know how things are going for you.
(If this is a different Liz, it's nice to meet you.)
