Sword and Sorcery - The Essentials - 2 of 3

Books / series that are truly worthy of the genre. And I shall keep on adding as I read and rate them.

The idea is to add new / defining work in the genre IMHO (ignoring the grammar and spelling errors, since some authors in the list are self-publishers, at least when they started).

Those who are even vaguely aware / interested in this genre, I am sure, are aware of classics like Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan / Brandon Sanderson, Riftwar Saga (Raymond Feist) and so this list does not include the likes (i.e. classics of this genre).

Unfortunately, since it appears I cannot add more than a 100 books to a list, it shall be a series of list.

You are most welcome to make recommendations.

For those who end up voting on this list, please keep the books in the series together. While it may not agree with your ranking of the books in the list, it helps people like me looking for books / series to add to their own "To-Read". Personally, I hate books of same series scattered all over the place. :)
