Because of a discussion I saw on Twitter about the uniformity of such lists, today I’m presenting a top ten of some of my favorite fantasy series.
The Wheel of Time is the largest epic fantasy story ever, with 15 books totaling over 4.4 million words. For reference, that’s more than seven times the Lord of the Rings. The Wheel of Time is big… and now it’s also a television show.
Imagine a world where anybody who is murdered comes back to life. You can’t? Well, John Scalzi wrote ‘the Dispatcher’ about such a world so you don’t have to.
I recently finished Brandon Sanderson’s Skyward, part one of the series of the same name. It’s a young adult novel, meaning it’s not stuffed to the brim with sex and violence. And, you know, that’s fine.
The end of 2021 is nearly upon us. So, a good day for a short look back to a very harrowing year. And what a year it has been.
