One year ago I embarked on my most successful blog series journey. My “Definitive” blog series were some of my most viewed post ever. So I thought I would do a little post with links so in case anybody missed these post the first time around they could check them out.

In this series of blog post I was just trying to spotlight some authors, books, and classic covers that have defined my reading enjoyment throughout my life. I love sharing these post so people who have read them can agree or disagree with how “Definitive” my choices are. Then people that might be new to these authors and books can discover what have shaped my reading taste. In any case I hope everyone will check out these post and enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed reading these books.

Thanks for having a look,

James

    It’s been one heck of a ride. Always happy to find a fellow Howard enthusiast. The gods are smiling on us.

    There is an obvious omission, a missing mountain from that range of mighty peaks – Jack Vance!

    They don’t get any more definitive than The Dying Earth. After that, try Lyonesse.
