I’m hoping that you’ve read most of these and will spend much of this column nodding your head in agreement. More importantly, I hope you find some new authors and novels that will enlighten you at some point down the road. NOTE: The genres I’ve picked are “major” to me, not to publishing in general. The Hobbit (1937) and Lord of the Rings (1954-1955) by J.R.R. I’m just going to lump it all together, here, so grant me that if you would. Buy J.R.R. Weaveworld (1987) by Clive Barker Buy Weaveworld from American Gods (2001) by Neil Gaiman Buy American Gods: Author's Preferred Text from
