What is your favorite scifi/ fantasy novel or series? Who is your favorite author?
Such a tough question! Tolkien has to rank up there as he brought me into the genre of fantasy. I really like Brandon Sanderson now - and of course love the classics such as Asimov etc.
Have you tried The Belgariad? Those are pretty good as well.
Terry Pratchet's disc world novels, my favourite being A hat full of sky.
The Riftwar Cycle - all 29 books by Raymond E Feist, the last one EVER to come out May 2013. I am excited and sad about this, lol.
Ohhh man - he's ending the saga! Magician (when it was one whole book and not three books) was one of the first fantasy books I read after the Lord of the Rings - I've followed it every since and grown old with the stories and characters! It will be missed!
Riftwar saga was awesome! I like his other series better. I think the first book was Servant of the Empire? Great books.
I have a lot of favorites series but if I had to pick.....I'd say The Wheel of Time for fantasy and the Dune books for Sci-fi. Favorite authors....that's harder to pin down. I'll get back to you on that lol.
Anne McCaffrey, Terry Brooks, Jennifer Fallon, Raymond Feist, gosh, I could go on and on. Right now I am alternating between the Shannara series by Terry Brooks and I have just finished the Chalion novels by Lois McMaster Bujold. And I'm impatiently waiting for the last Riftwar novel by Raymond Feist. i guess my favorite is whatever I am reading at the time.
Fantasy - The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
Sci-Fi - Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, Orson Scott Card
Tolkien tops my list with lord of the Rings, Hobbit and Silmarillion, and then we have Wheel of time followed by Umru Ayyar and Tilism Hoshruba (Umru the Sly and the Realm of Awe), a work in Urdu which is beyond fantastic. It is similar to the Thousand and one Arabian nights and is related to Hamzanama, another beautiful work in Urdu which has been translated into English.
Favorite novel would be "Glory Road" by Robert A. Heinlein.
Favorite series would be "The Warbots" series by G. Harry Stine (a protege of Heinlein's).

Hi everyone,I love Terry Pratchett's fantasy comedy novels - although set in his fantasy Discworld, they often take on real world issues. It could be said that Terry is the greatest satirist of the 20th and 21st centuries.I'm also a big fan of David Eddings' Belgariad and Mallorean series, and...

So what's your favorite fantasy or scifi author?For me, I love Diana Wynne Jones. Howl's Moving Castle or the Chronicles of Chrestomanci are just so much fun that they could brighten the darkest day! Not to mention her more serious works. So awesome! But I love Jim Butcher...
