Fantasy Novels: Top 10 List

October 10, 2016

There is a show by the brilliant British comedian Ricky Gervais called Life’s Too Short.  In one mind-blowingly awesome scene, guest star Liam Neeson remarks, “I make lists all the time.”  If you do not know the context, I highly recommend that you seek out the show or at least watch a clip of the scene.  I will not post a link here because it is copyrighted content, but you really should see it for yourself anyway.  Regardless, Liam Neeson’s statement definitely is true for me!  You can expect to see many different Top lists on the site!In all seriousness, I am not saying that my opinion equals fact, so if you do not like my ranking feel free to post your own.  To kick things off, these are my Top 10 Fantasy Books:




  1. Lord of the Rings The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
  2. Conan stories by Robert E. Howard (especially the novella Red Nails)
  3. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin
