... might be time to start, with Dave's The Gamble of the Godless, book one of the series titled The Chronicles of Avin.
Dave began The Gamble 15 years ago, while we were living in Morocco. This interview will fill you in: http://indiebookblogger.blogspot.com/2011/08/interview-with-david-maine-author-of.html
You can also check out his website, http://www.thechroniclesofavin.com/
And buy the book on amazon (or a bunch of other sites listed on his site): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005FR0A26/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_ng0oob0DJPC4S
And "like" his facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-Maine-The-Chronicles-of-Avin/167368593330466
And I know I'm biased, but I read the first two books in the series back when Dave first began writing them, and though I don't know much about the genre, these were hugely enjoyable. I love the animals, I love the humor, and I love the spiritedness of the writer.
And, oh, I like the cover.
One last thing. Granta asked its contributors to write on their Best Books of 2010. I chose Touch by Adania Shibli: http://www.granta.com/Online-Only/Best-Books-of-2010-Fiction If you didn't hear of this gem last year, you can still run out and buy a copy.
Happy New Year.
