All-Time Fantasy Favourites
The Hobbit: 70th Anniversary Edition
"The starting point for the greatest fantasy story ever told."
The Lord of the Rings - 3 book boxset (hardbacks)
"The greatest fantasy story ever told. Get the books separately, so you get all those wonderful appendices."
"Chronologically the first stories, but easier to read last. Beautiful and tragic."
The Worm Ouroboros (Millennium Fantasy Masterworks)
"A true classic. A little hard to get into but well worth it. Unlike anything else in fantasy fiction and a book you'll never forget."
Nine Princes In Amber
"The first in the Amber series. No-one did or does intrigue like Zelazny."
The Black Company (Chronicle of the Black Company)
"The start of the Black Company series. Cook's gritty realism is unique. This overtook Amber as my favourite series."
Silver Spike (Chronicle of the Black Company)
"Cook really makes you care about his characters. I almost cried when Silent died. (OK, I did cry!)"
Bleak Seasons (Glittering Stone)
"I could list all the Black Company books, but I'll end with this one. Bleak indeed, but brilliant."
Old Tin Sorrows (Garrett P.I.)
"The Garrett series is variable in quality, but this is the best, and the darkest."
A Princess of Mars (Modern Library)
"Does anyone still read Burroughs? If not, they should, for sheer escapist fun. Start here and read all 11 in the series."
Elric Of Melnibone (The Tale of the Eternal Champion)
"Moorcock's most tragic hero. The Eternal Champion may be the greatest fantasy character ever created. Elric, Hawkmoon, Corum and Erekose are all essential reading."
"Some of his books are formulaic, but they're all readable. The Drenai books are the best. The battle scenes in Legend are unmatched."
"This and it's sequel Lavondyss treat racial myth in a completely new way, but at heart it is a love story. Imaginative and compelling. You need to read both books for the whole story."
Magician: 1 (Riftwar Saga)
"The first Riftwar trilogy (Magician, Silverthorn and A Darkness At Sethanon) were quite brilliant. The series got increasingly disappointing afterwards, I couldn't finish the Serpentwar saga."
A Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire)
"Epic in scale, with great writing, if a little bit too medieval for my taste. Thankfully not afraid to kill off important characters where necessary."
Dwellers in the Mirage
"A wonderful story centred around Norse mythology."
A Spell for Chameleon (Xanth Novels)
"I'm not usually a fan of humour in fiction, but the first few Xanth books (of which this is the first) were delightful. They are also good stories, not just played for laughs."
Wizard of Lemuria (Tandem science fantasy)
"Lin Carter rivalled Burroughs and Howard in his time. I liked his World's End series a lot, but Thongor was his greatest creation. Sword and Sorcery at it's best, at the dawn of time."
