BIG-ASS FANTASY LIST

Really, I've got no other title for it. It ain't systematic, but it is all-inclusive--both of your suggestions and another list I found from the Night Shade boards that had a few more books on it. There's stuff on this list that stinks up the place, but it's on there.

You wanted it, you got it, you sado-masochistic people. LOL!

Now, whatcha gonna do with it?

Jeff

P.S. Typos? Probably? Duplicates? Probably. Do the edits in your head. The list's too long for normal quality control, given my schedule. :) THANKS to my long-suffering wife for helping with this.

Wow. I'm not sure it's possible to read all of those books in one lifetime.

 
At 4:24 PM, Blogger Andrew Wheeler said...

I'm sure you could read them all in one lifetime, if you wanted to. I estimate there are about a thousand books there (I counted forty in a screen-full, and there were about twenty-five screens worth), so, if you read a hundred a year, you can get through them in only ten years.

If you wanted to make it a fifty-year plan, you'd only need to read twenty of them a year.

You put yourself on your own list? :)

 
At 5:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Eek! But first, fuck you for being anonymous.

Second, I didn't notice. I combined the old main list with the other one I had and it had it on there. I'll delete it.

This list, btw, doesn't even include much from the last 10 years. Hardly anything, in fact. Scary, huh?

Sean Russell's books World Without End and Sea Without a Shore.
Sean Stewart's Perfect Circle.
Lisa Tuttle's brand new The Silver Bough.
Jo Walton's The King's Peace and The King's Name and Prize in the Game.
Patricia Wrede's Mairelon the Magician and Sorcery and Cecilia.
Pamela Dean's The Dubious Hills. Best book in the whole wide world, ever, no exaggeration.
Brust and Bull's Freedom and Necessity.
Emma Bull's Bone Dance.
Will Shetterly's Dogland.
Tad William's The War of the Flowers.

The really scary thing is that I can think of probably another 200 books which should be on that list but aren't in English.

 
At 9:08 AM, Blogger Freebird said...

Very nice list - I've read a fair amount and it's nice to know that I still haven't read even a quarter of these. Means more to read in the future!

As for the comment above about a probable list of works not in English that would be worthy, I would agree, but I would also point out that a fair number of books are listed above that weren't originally published in English.

And of course, there are some works that I realized could have made the list but didn't, but such is life. I'm just thankful that Jeff took the time to edit, revise, and expand all this - I do believe it's time to make a mini-list to carry with me to the library this afternoon.

JeffV, anonymous dude here. I'm not sure if you were offended, but my post was said in pure jest. I'm a big fan of yours and I'd certainly put your work in any "must read" list. BTW, I can't wait for the North American release of Shriek!!!

Hey, Michael. Forgive my tongue-in-cheek assholery. I don't like anonymous posts, but the comment was definitely valid! No offense taken--hope none was given!!

What to do with the list?

I sort of took what I wanted from it (admitting to ignorance in many cases), added what I feel to be the most important Science Fiction and Horror novels/collections, and came up with this.

I humbly dub it The Ultimate Speculative Fiction Reading List. (In my defense, I learned humility from Vera Nazarian)

THAT'S GREAT! Much more systematic!

I'm currently looking through the books I have/have had/intend to read because I have and while this is a lovely list, as lists go, which they don't, often, I still think that calling The Colour of Magic as The Colour of Money is hilariously and unfairly aptly amusing.

:/nit-pick:

I would first like to congratulate you VanderMeer on this exhaustive, list of fine works. Though there may or may not be works "stinking up the place"...

Now time to taste the sour...

I have personally read nearly that entire list. No it will not take a lifetime (I am about 20 yo) though it will take years. The fact that I suffer from on again off again insomnia (that can last well over a week) has assisted me in reading most of the works on this list.

I confess I am "poorly read" in the more contemporary works.

You and your contributors seem to have missed a few authours. I offer my resources to amend this list, as to add any missing authours, and expand on the odd suggestions by many, many of those names. (For instance Philip Jose Farmer has an extensive list, and rightly so, but Vance, Dick, Borges, among others are poorly represented).

I realize you’re a busy guy, so am I. I would not proceed with this work myself, but I would delegate it to any combination of personal assistants, secretaries, acquaintances, and professional help, as is efficient, and proper in my duties to said people.

This revision of your list could take some time, as the people working on it for me, would have other duties that come first.

I have a sense that this list, has something to do with present/future lectures? Perhaps this list is something like a tool for a teaching course? Even if this list is a simple curiosity, aimed at stirring the internet based "Weird" fiction community, I still am compelled to offer my resources.

If you are interested in this revision of your already great list, let me know and I can get the ball rolling...

I was just re-reading your original list of 60 essential fantasy books from the night shade site because I couldn’t remember a book title and noticed that you listed four “circus” books. Had you noticed this before?

 
At 4:18 AM, Anonymous chouinard said...

Fuck, I'm still reading the LIST....

 
At 10:31 AM, Blogger Avi Abrams said...

Your big fantasy list is wonderful for me, especially since i did not read that much fantasy - i'd have to hunt down some entries...

BTW, i recently uploaded on my site
http://thrillingwonderreading.blogspot.com

LOADS of my own top-reading lists -though a bit "pulp-oriented" for some likings.
I'd be happy to hear your comment.

I'd like to see the reasoning behind A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES being put on a "fantasy" list.
