Princeps - L.E. Modesitt Jr. Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch The Light Fantastic  - Terry Pratchett Stardust - Neil Gaiman Whispers Under Ground - Ben Aaronovitch Imager's Battalion (Imager Portfolio) - L. E. Modesitt Equal Rites: A Novel of Discworld - Terry Pratchett Antiagon Fire: The Seventh Book of the Imager Portfolio - L.E. Modesitt Jr. Mort - Terry Pratchett Every Short Story, 1951-2012 - Alasdair Gray

And actually there were two more as well, 'Mavis Belfrage' and 'McGrotty and Ludmilla', both by Alasdair Gray, but booklikes would only let me add ten.


My favorite: 'Stardust'.  I've always been a sucker for a good fairy tale, and Neil Gaiman's a dab hand.


My least: 'Every Short Story'.  I'm a big fan of Alasdair Gray, but I was somewhat disappointed to discover that I'd already read most of the best stories in previous collections, and the edition I read was rife with typos, missing and transposed lines, and other errors.  Neither of these were any fault of the author's, but both curtailed my enjoyment.
