Survivor Appendix N Authors- LEIBER WINS!

Wow, I've heard of many of these authors and have a number of them on my I should read that someday list, but the only one I have actually read anything by is Tolkien. I'm not fit to vote in this one (and I read a lot in my younger days).
Quite a few where out of print for quite some time (some for good reason). I think you can find most available digitally now though.

We've got a pretty good used bookstore where I live. I had Moorcock & Vance in my hand one day but put them back in favor of Dune (which I still have not read).

Moorcock is still alive and writing. It wasn't him I was thinking of.

Edit: And you should read Dune.

Edit: I wonder how many others are still alive? Zelazny died not so long ago.

Tolkien does not seem to be running away with things just yet, so I'll keep hitting Lovecraft... for now.

I don't care what your metrics are, in this list Lovecraft should not be the first to go.

As much as I love my Kindle (and yes, you can get a number of Appendix N authors’ works free of charge or very cheaply), there’s something about the smell of a nicely aged 1970s paperback, the feel of the paper.

Also, Dune is totally worth reading. If it helps, it’s pretty much fantasy masquerading as sci-fi.

We've got a pretty good used bookstore where I live. I had Moorcock & Vance in my hand one day but put them back in favor of Dune (which I still have not read).
