    Balefire is from the Wheel of Time books. It's an uber spell that makes the target as if it had never existed. It's kinda like the temporal incursion weapon from ST:Voyager.

    I don't remember that term specifically, what episode are you talking about? The one where they went back to space dock when the ship was being built, to stop that bomb?

    Superstar,

    The Wheel of Time is a series written by Robert Jordan. Read them. They are excellent although getting a bit jumbled now in the latest few. Next one comes out in January I believe.

    I would also recommend the Song of Fire and Ice series by George RR Martin. Absolutely hands down the best fantasy type books I have read in a very long while. The plot in these is beyond cool.

    Enjoy

    WoT sucks...Jordan tried to make another LotR, but failed. Although all I read was Eye of the World.

    Well... if you only read the first book then I would have to say that your opinion lacks a little credibility. If you think that Robert Jordan tried to become the next Tolkien then I think you would have to look at the entire Fantasy genre as trying to do the same thing. That is a flawed argument because the genre has its roots in Tolkien and every series out there can be compared to Tolkien in some way or another. Reread Eye of the World... the series really picks up after that one.

    The Ender books are true masterpieces. I haven´t read the last one in the Shadow serie, anyone read Shadow Puppets?
    I read the Homecoming books and thought they were good, but then I found out that the first one was a rewrite of "book of mormon" I was scared OSC had influenced me with his mormon faith. Scary.
    I like his books but I don´t like his opinions and faith. He´s very pro-america and seems to think war is a good solution. He also has some strage opinions about homosexuals.

    Anyone read Terry Pratchett?

    I have been able to order it from and swedish online SF-bookstore for a few weeks. How does the cover art look? Like the other ones, I´we got them with big outstanding letters.
    The one I can order might be a UK edition, it´s three embryos or something similar on the cover.
    It´s almost $20 and I don´t want to pay more then $10 for a book. (Not hardcover)
