Paul Kemp (kemp) | 17 comments I blogged my thoughts about what defines S&S, offered some reading recommendations and solicited others. The upshot of that was a nice (but non-exhaustive) list of S&S titles and I posted it to Reddit.

Now, most of these titles will be known to most of you, but you may find a hidden treasure or two to add to your To Be Read pile.

Anyway, hope you find it useful. Link is here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comme...

The Dray Prescot Series by Kenneth Bulmer (aka Alan Burt Akers)

The list reminds me of the various Gygax's AD&D reading lists... one known as Appendix N, but there are several variations.
