I have several projects on my hard drive. The worlds are quite detailed, but my ability to develop characters and plot leaves much to be desired.
Recently finished reading ASoIaF from GoT to the fifth (and last, for now) book... yes, I know, it was well overdue.
Best worlds - Lovecraft; Tolkien Best character-building - G.R.R. Martin Best children's - Pullman Best magic system - Brandon Sanderson Most overrated - Dune Most underrated - Emberverse Best overall ("favorite") - Coming up with the above was hard enough! A few years ago I'd have said Robert Jordan, but that was before we finally understood that WoT had become an irredeemable mess. Now I will provisionally "crown" G.R.R. Martin, though he still has to prove himself worthy.
