What fantasy books have moved you? Which ones have you loved?

I won’t put up a Top Ten list, because there are too many good ones to mention. But I’ll just list some I like, in no particular order. What about you?

  • J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings series and The Hobbit–the granddaddy of them all. (Or is he???)
  • C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (and several of the others in the Narnia series, but not all)
  • Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana (and a few of his others, although not all)
  • China Mieville, Perdido Street Station (told ya this was an electic list!)
  • George R. R. Martin, A Song of Ice and Fire (the first two books, anyway)
  • Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
  • T. H. White, The Once and Future King
  • Lian Hearn, Across the Nightingale Floor (and several of the others in the Tales of the Otori series, but not all)
