The name says it all! Some of the finest fiction I have ever read! Who among us has not wondered about the very nature of creation. The World of Tiers series not only addresses these thoughts in a smoothly fluid manner that would make Heilein proud, it is also an epic adventure rich with heros, villians and those caught between them. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED! I first read this series (along with his equally incredible Riverworld series) when i was in high school. to this day they are a fond memory and and one i enjoy revisiting from time to time, If only to freeboot around with Wolffe and Kickaha, fighting the good fight and living the hero's life! Like the memory of sledding down your favorite hill when you were a kid - you know the one. It kind of scared you and thrilled you to no end. the difference being that when you ride down this hill as an adult, the hill doesn't seem any smaller. Enjoy.
