Reading List

From Eradain
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An incomplete list (and in no particular order) of authors who have inspired me and have helped to make the world of Eradain come alive. If you are interested in reading fiction (primarily fantasy), I highly recommend any one of these authors… Aside from the usual suspects such as Moorcock, Tolkien, my biggest influences have always been low fantasy Celtic & feudal-medieval. The biggest among these are, Katharine Kerr, Barbara Hambly and Katherine Kurtz and Mercedes Lackey. There are so many more and the list usually gets longer more often than I update. Thank you, authors.
