Fantasy- the Classics (Catherine’s Book Shelf)

When you look at something, it’s good to not only see it as now, but to look back to its roots and see the foundations the whole thing is built on. Here’s five classic authors who helped to start the fantasy genre

J. R. R. Tolkien  best known for the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings series

C.S. Lewis author of the Narnia series

Fritz Leiber  wrote the Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser series, which brought us  rascally sword and sorcery heroes/ anti-heroes and made fantasy fun

Robert E. Howard  best known for Conan the Barbarian, but also wrote Kull and a number of other fantasy stories

Edgar Rice Burroughs best known for Tarzan, but also wrote the Jon Carter of Mars series, the Pellucidar series and a number of other stories

We are all standing on the shoulders of those who came before us. Check out these great writers and see where we’ve come from
