    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

          I'm fairly sure Kings outrank Lords.

            I had to go for LotS. I've only read KotC once and it didn't race to the top of any favourites list. So for the sheer escapism I went for Michael Kane.
            You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

              If I vote for LoTS it's really only because I didn't progress very far with reading KotC, which isn't a slur on King just I wasn't in the frame of mind to read it at the time.
              _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
              _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
              _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
              _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                haven't voted because I've only read LoTS out of these two. In fact it was my first MM novel and I'd be seriously biased...

                Hang in there LoTS

                and over in the big black booth near the edge of the fairground, the last band is playing...

                  Ha ha ha ha. King of the City. LOS is great escapist fare, but really there's no contest here.
