Fantasy books to read before you die

I have been gathering a list lately of favourite fantasy novels, both mine and others, some of which came in after my blog post on good book recommendations. So here you are, some are old classics, others newer work. I haven’t read them all myself but am reliably informed their awesomeness will blind you.

Metaphorically, you understand, as it would be a rather crap book which blinded you before you could read it. Although a useful MI6 weapon (curls pretend moustache thoughtfully)…

I have done my best with the links, but for some of these it was hard to track down a good summary. Any more you can add to that, fantasy reads you are raving about? Knowledge is power, let me know and I will update this post from time to time.

About Scott Foley

Scott Foley is a British fantasy writer based in Manchester. He is author of Knight of Aslath and the Dreaming God Chronicle. Brought up on a steady diet of Tolkien, roleplaying games and a never-ending fascination with the question ‘what if?’, writing fantasy novels seemed the only sensible and worthwhile thing to do with his life. Knight of Aslath is his first novel, and he is currently working on the sequel Warlords of the Dreaming God. Both novels form the beginning of the Dreaming God Chronicle and are set in the fantasy world of Teth-Kiran. Knight of Aslath is available on Amazon, and you can find out more about Scott's work at:
