message 1: by Robin (new)

Robin Dune and Dragonflight are Science Fiction, not Fantasy, so I cannot vote for them as the best Fantasy of all time.


message 2: by Jennifer Fiddes (last edited Oct 13, 2014 09:04PM) (new)

Jennifer Fiddes They are crossed, I think. Glad to see Phantom Tollbooth, Death Gate, and lotsa Abecrombie. Best Served Cold should be higher up tho. Displaced WoK as my favorite modern fantasy.

Edit: No NK Jemisin? No? The fuck. Her duology was rather mindblowing for me. But I am an Egyptian history nut, so maybe it's not for everyone.

Science Fiction is a genre of fantasy. It is not separate.

BookLovingLady I have a hard time picturing The Picture of Dorian Gray (#118) as 'fantasy'...
