Several years ago Audible ran a sale on most of Edding's books. I was huge into Robert Jordan, George RR Martin, Patrick Rothfuss, even RA Salvatore and a bunch of Forgotten Realms stuff and I had never once heard of David Eddings (though I do recall seeing these covers in the Fantasy/SciFi paperback section of my… » 3/27/15 8:38am Yesterday 8:38am

Thanks to METV I was able to watch the entire series (before DC announced Wonder Woman was going to be in Superman v. Batman and they exiled it to post-Svengoolie).
