The Best Fantasy Authors (in progress)
Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen)
"Steven Erikson is the very best author, possibly ever. He creates a dark world without good or evil. Must-Read Books: The Malazan Book of the Fallen series, Blood Follows (Malazan novella)"
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire)
"The only author who can compare to Erikson. Martin can be horribly brutal. His characters are his greatest strength. Must-Read Books: A Song of Ice and Fire Series"
Assassin's Apprentice (The Farseer Trilogy - Book 1): 1/3
"Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm is an amazing author. This is her first book under the name Robin Hobb. Must Read Books: Farseer Trilogy, Liveship Traders Trilogy, Tawny Man Trilogy"
"Gemmell is the best at heroic fantasy. He is perfect to read when you are not in the mood for a massive epic. Must-Read Books: Dark Moon, Drenai series, Rigante series, Stones of Power series"
The Colour of Magic: The First Discworld Novel: 1
"Terry Pratchett is the greatest humourous fantasy author ever. His Discworld sereis should be read by all. Must-Read Books: The Discworld Series (28 novels thus far plus spin-offs), Good Omens"
The Barbed Coil
"A good author who has turned from the light fantasy Book of Words to the more gritty Sword of Shadows. Must-Read Books: Book of Words Trilogy, The Barbed Coil, Sword of Shadows Trilogy"
Ash: A Secret History
"A great book. Ash is beautiful in all ways. Simply must be read. Must-Read Books: All Mary's fantasy novels starting with Ash"
The One Kingdom: Book One of the Swans' War Trilogy
"A masterpiece of intelligent fantasy. Russell creates a world with harmony and strife. Divinly beautiful. Must-Read Books: The Swan War Trilogy"
The Chosen (The Stone Dance Of The Chameleon)
"A highly brutal but also very wel writen series. The terrible treatment and violence justs adds much more affect. Must-Read Books: The Stone Dance of the Chameleon trilogy"
King's Dragon (Crown of Stars, Book 1)
"A series rife with religious struggle. A bit over descriptive, but good all the same. Must-Read Books: Crown of Stars hectology"
The Broken Crown (Sun Sword, volume 1)
"Daw Books should give West more publicity. Her writing is amazing, and these books deserve to sell. Just look at their reviews. Must-Read Books: The Sun Sword hectology"
Magician: 1 (Riftwar Saga)
"One of the first authors a fantasy reader should investigate. A modern classic. Feist's best work is the Empire trilogy, writen with Janny Wurts. Must-Read Books: Riftwar Saga, Empire Trilogy"
A Shadow On The Glass: The View from the Mirror, book 1
"Ian Irvine started good but gets better with each book. His second series is a strange mixture of magic and technology.Must-Read Books: The View from the Mirrior series, The Well of Echoes series"
The Dragonbone Chair: Memory, Sorrow and Thorne Series: Book One (Memory, Sorrow & Thorn)
"Slow to begin with, William's story soon picks up. Stereotypical, but good. Must-Read Books: Memory, Sorrow and Thorn series. Shadowmarch looks to be good, too."
The Briar King (Kingdoms of Thorn & Bone)
"Start of a promsing trilogy in the vein of Eliott. Must-Read Books: The Briar King"
