^^^ I will look into them.

I need suggestions for first books in a sci-fi/fantasy series. I picked up Stephen Baxter's up Raft (Xeelee series) and Emperor (Time's Tapestry series) books cheaply recently so I wouldn't mind people's opinions of those books/series.

I have decided to read Hood (first book in the Raven King series).

Edited to add - what are people's opinions on the Howl Moving Castle's series. I loked the animated movie.

And is Sandman a good choice for a graphic novel?
Sandman is one of the best graphic novels in existence. It's a compilation of the award-winning series. (They are, actually. There's a couple.) You might also try: Fables, Maus, or some Alan Moore( Vis for Vendetta, Watchmen, The Killing Joke).

As for scif series: Have you read 1632 by Eric Flint?
