Mitchell For what it's worth, I don't consider the Anne McCaffrey Pern books to be Fantasy - but I have no issue with them being on this list, though I won't vote for them for that reason.

Vivien Esnault Added Elric of Melniboné and The Black Company.

I checked on the lower rated lists but seems they were just forgotten.

We are only allowed 100 votes per list. There are quite a few books missing on the lower rated lists. All help would be appreciated. Including just voting on books voted on by just one person - which will allow list maintainers to change their votes and add more.

That said - looks like I have room on this list so it is off to hunt for more.


message 16: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell The Mad Ship graduated


Charlotte Igelkott Graduated: City of Stairs, Toll the Hounds, Her Body and Other Parties

Removed for having A LOT more than 25000 ratings:
An Ember in the Ashes, Crown of Midnight, The Golden Compass
(They were already on the highest list)


Charlotte Igelkott Graduated: Age of Myth
