I’m starting a short series of blog posts in the run-up to the release of The Defenders’ Apprentice at the end of this month. One problem, though, is that I’m not a very sophisticated book reviewer. I know what I like, and I tend to read a book once and move on without getting into much detailed analysis. I know I should linger more, but so many books, so little time!
This week, I’m listing a handful of 20th century classics, most of which I read in my teens and 20s, if not before. I’m listing them in order of publication, because some of them are getting pretty long in the tooth, and the evolution of the fantasy genre in the 20th century is more interesting that the order in which I stumbled across them.
