This reading group is dedicated to literary fantasy, the sort of books that are listed in the James Cawthorn/Michael Moorcock Fantasy: The 100 Best Books, the David Pringle Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels, the Ballantyne Adult Fantasy series of the 1960s/1970s, Lin Carter's Imaginary Worlds, and other similar sources. It does include a vast array of non-genre European, English, American, and world fiction, as well as the best historical pulp and relevant science fiction and horror. Authors we will be reading include Mervyn Peake, E.R. Eddison, William Hope Hodgson, David Lindsay, Charles Robert Maturin, William Morris, G.K. Chesterton, Lord Dunsany, Charles Williams, J.R.R. Tolkien, Terry Brooks, Stephen Donaldson, C.S. Lewis, Franz Kafka, Clark Ashton Smith, John Crowley, Mark Helprin, T.H. White, Italo Calvino, Edmund Spenser, and many others. As long as fiction, plays, and poetry have a "fantastic," non-realistic element, they are eligible for consideration. We should have a great reading time here.
