Jeff VanderMeer has posted a fairly comprehensive Essential Fantasy Reading List. He also offers a clarification over at Andrew Wheeler’s blog that this is essential reading for writers.

Reading lists are fun, but I tend to gravitate more towards sf-related lists, like those of Gardner Dozois and others.

Even so, I’d love to do the meme thing like Andrew and others are doing, but – not being a huge fan of fantasy – I’m not all that well-read in it. I will say that, in true biblioholic fashion, I own several of them anyway. Also, I had a failed reading attempt at Crowley’s Little, Big. (See Kevin’s review.)

However, don’t let my fantasy failings stop you from posting your take on the list – meme style or otherwise!
