    Does anybody read fantasy literature? If so, what authors/series are your favorite? Do you read epic or YA, or both? Let's talk...

    Tad Williams is my favorite fantasy author, and maybe my favorite author in general. Though, I haven't been reading a lot of fantasy (or much fiction at all) lately. That seems like something I need to fix.

    It sucks because I'd love to read more but it's clear that there's so much "junk fantasy" out there. I've heard RA Salvatore is good but nothing else yet.

    If the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett counts, then I read those

    I'll read everything Michael Moorcock writes. Especially anything having to do with The Eternal Champion which includes his ELRIC saga, CORUM and HAWKMOON.

    Who else...

    Robert E. Howard
    Gene Wolfe
    Fritz Leiber
    Lin Carter
    George R.R. Martin
    Karl Edward Wagner

    Nice, thought I was the only one.

    Jim Butcher is great...he writes the Dresden Files.

    Others? Let's keep it going....

    Theres a lot of fantasy books out there. almost as much as there is romance books. lol i read a lot of them, but my personal favorite is called the silent tower by barbara hambley. its very thought provoking and is kinda a mystery novel along with wizards and stuff. its one of my favorite books. I recommend it to anyone that reads this type of stuff

    Nice....I'm always intrigued by female authors, especially in fantasy. My niece is all about the Fairy Godmother Academy website...from what I'm told the book comes out soon as well. Kind of neat to see the whole interactive/web cross-promotion machine in effect.

    I like Juliet Marillier as well. She's written some adaptations of Celtic mythology, which I really enjoyed.
