I love this world in which "powers" come in systematic flavors which combine into unique specialties of super power.
by Octavia E. Butler
History, two kinds of immortals, themes of slavery and freedom, breeding of genetic powers. How can you beat that?
by Dan Simmons
A horrific journey into the depths and nature of evil. One of the most chilling books I have ever read.
by Lyndon Hardy
Pure fun fantasy, but I love solid attempts to systematize and render magic into a real and "believable" system.
by Roger Zelazny
Hokey at times, but I just love the concept and feel of this reality bender. The pattern has haunted me for decades.
by Stephen King
Stephen King's best. Almost pure fantasy, told with his knack for making even the weirdest situations and dialog believable.
by Patrick Rothfuss
Really great first novel. Fantasy told with a startling immediacy.
by George R.R. Martin
Simply the best modern fantasy work. The scope is huge, the characters intensely real, and the medieval-ness (as in "go all medieval on his ass") is incredible.
Recommending books so good, they'll keep you up past your bedtime. more...
