Six best fantasy novels? - 04/12/2009 05:54:54 AM 1270 Views
Best fantasy authors - 04/12/2009 07:01:48 AM 986 Views
Have you read Robin Hobb? *NM* - 04/12/2009 04:01:23 PM 433 Views
I have, and wasn't really impressed - 04/12/2009 10:08:25 PM 803 Views
You definitely read the wrong stuff first - 05/12/2009 12:12:07 AM 907 Views
Agreed. - 09/12/2009 09:55:12 PM 823 Views
Only read two. Book of the New Sun definitely deserves that spot. Mieville, not so much. - 04/12/2009 08:06:45 AM 996 Views
Interesting. - 04/12/2009 05:21:04 PM 840 Views
Why Mieville, if I may ask? *NM* - 04/12/2009 08:33:43 PM 485 Views
I didn't mean that to be a reply to you, but still - 05/12/2009 03:15:36 AM 880 Views
No worries. - 05/12/2009 03:52:11 AM 891 Views
But the list was for favorite books, not favorite or most important authors - 05/12/2009 10:25:13 AM 819 Views
It was for "best" books. I realize that has a lot of meanings, though. *NM* - 05/12/2009 08:37:01 PM 323 Views
Hm... good point - 06/12/2009 02:19:13 AM 622 Views
Glen Cook is radically overrated. - 05/12/2009 04:09:07 PM 986 Views
Well, he's at least part of the wave that humanized fantasy. - 05/12/2009 08:36:29 PM 706 Views
In the US, yes. Elsewhere, no, because they didn't know about him. - 06/12/2009 04:36:31 PM 863 Views

Two years? It was published in 2000... *NM* - 05/12/2009 09:03:33 PM 235 Views
Nine years is like two. *NM* - 06/12/2009 12:25:49 AM 410 Views
I've yet to read a Gene Wolfe. - 06/12/2009 02:26:54 AM 676 Views
Yes, yes, yes. - 06/12/2009 02:35:45 AM 692 Views
You know I directly added almost all of those Wolfe quotes there, right? - 06/12/2009 05:26:40 AM 829 Views
I just find Mieville's prose exceptionally standard. - 06/12/2009 07:25:05 AM 784 Views
Isn't that almost a contradiction of terms there? - 06/12/2009 07:45:47 AM 769 Views
It's remarkable for its normalcy because so many people praise it? - 06/12/2009 09:11:18 AM 709 Views
Who the heck are these people? *NM* - 04/12/2009 12:46:48 PM 376 Views
I've never heard of any of them either.... *NM* - 05/12/2009 02:58:11 AM 528 Views

Yeah you're so much better than us *NM* - 06/12/2009 12:00:27 PM 404 Views
I'm very ambivalent about A Wizard of Earthsea - 04/12/2009 05:18:00 PM 773 Views
Possibly has to do with the times in which it was written/read - 06/12/2009 05:29:27 AM 733 Views

I really need to get around to reading Mists of Avalon. - 04/12/2009 09:50:54 PM 675 Views
Calenture - 05/12/2009 12:44:14 AM 625 Views
Ooh, I need to get my hands on Calenture. *NM* - 06/12/2009 02:27:34 AM 419 Views
And ha! I thought it might be you. *NM* - 06/12/2009 02:29:13 AM 358 Views
I'll eventually get to those in the near future - 06/12/2009 05:31:29 AM 707 Views
I don't read or buy books anymore. - 06/12/2009 11:45:33 PM 672 Views
I understand that - 07/12/2009 12:55:46 AM 806 Views
Okay, I'll give it a shot - 04/12/2009 10:12:47 PM 848 Views
You might more mythopoeic material in your fantasies, don't you? *NM* - 04/12/2009 11:22:33 PM 414 Views
Mythopoeic? Who...me? - 05/12/2009 02:19:03 AM 613 Views
Yes, you - 05/12/2009 03:51:25 AM 863 Views
The Blogger Seems to Agree With You. - 05/12/2009 10:10:07 PM 790 Views
Book of the New Sun is very early 80's and is almost inarguably a classic of the genre. - 06/12/2009 12:26:55 AM 846 Views
Never Read It, But All Accounts Support That View. - 06/12/2009 02:44:17 PM 959 Views

I like Grossman's list a lot more than Henry's. *NM* - 04/12/2009 11:41:36 PM 384 Views
Here are mine, but I probably haven't really read enough fantasy to have a top 5 - 05/12/2009 12:16:13 AM 721 Views
Have you tried any standalones recently? - 06/12/2009 05:33:41 AM 770 Views
I always end up wanting more - 06/12/2009 05:53:11 AM 691 Views
The only one on his list I would think about agreeing with is Meiville. - 05/12/2009 03:11:25 AM 818 Views
Have you tried Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves yet? - 06/12/2009 05:34:48 AM 689 Views
No list is complete without Goodkind *NM* - 05/12/2009 07:59:22 AM 431 Views
Sorry, I can't help it- no *porn* list is complete without Goodkind... *NM* - 06/12/2009 02:21:22 AM 314 Views

He certainly has a specific kind of taste. - 06/12/2009 02:20:30 AM 712 Views
Pfft! - 06/12/2009 06:54:24 AM 610 Views
Who are you asking?? - 07/12/2009 08:09:25 PM 569 Views
