1. JRR Tolkien I’m sure every fantasy writer says this but it’s true. Reading The Lord of The Rings as a nine-year-old was one of the pivotal moments of my life. It’s what made me decide I wanted to be a writer and a fantasy writer at that.
2. Stephen Donaldson His Thomas Covenant Trilogy still ranks as one of the best I’ve ever read. He brings an intensity to his characters and to his writing that few other authors can. Most of his characters are anti-heroes to a certain extent and yet he is able to still have readers rooting for them.
3. Stephen Erikson His Malazan series was an eye-opener for me. I don’t think I’ve ever read a series on such an epic scale. His books spans millennia, different worlds and a host of characters. For me, he’s redefined what’s possible within the fantasy genre.
