SonOfDolf --do you mind if I rename this thread "Other Fantasy Writers" (or something like that)?

That aside, I really (really) don't read that much Fantasy; depending in how you use the term. I read much fantastic fiction --in particular Supernatural fiction (or Weird literature). I did read Eddings, Gemmell, Pratchett etc when I was younger --they were all okay. To be honest, re-reading Tolkien recently, I can really see why some parts of the literary world don't rate Fantasy. I mean, they might think Tolkien is good, but probably think if this is literally the best Fantasy can offer --the genre isn't up to much. Sadly, the fault in this argument is that everything that is highly acclaimed/rated (where Fantasy isn't) doesn't faintly appeal to me; & I suspect I wouldn't really enjoy reading it. SF still offers much that captivates me too.
