Name a SINGLE GOOD fantasy novel. A. single. one.

>>20794567R Scott Bakker - The Darkness That Comes BeforeWilliam Hope Hodgson - The Night Land
theres plenty, you just have to dig through the excess of YA "shirtless male model on the cover" smut for women
There aren't any.
>>20794567This is it bro. If you want to read Malazan read this first then go back and read the first book, it was written ten years before it was published and completely incomprehensible to newfags
Commercial fiction has produced absolutely nothing of value, and its transition into a trailer park for faggots is probably an improvement.
>>20794567The Broken Sword>>20794599I doubt you read much of anything if that's your grand analysis of literature and "commercial fiction" which is funny considering the majority of the so-called "canon(s)" are shilled by the Big Five and academia to make you buy their books and critical introductions, monographs, as well as companions.
>>20794567The Worm Ouroboros by E. R. Eddison
>>20794605Just read this on a whim. It was a real pleasure.
>>20794567There's this underrated writer named JRR Tolkien. He wrote a novel named Lord of the Rings. You should read it sometime.
what are good fantasy novels for adults, or at least 20s lol
>>20794605not him but my canon is homer, hesiod, virgil, ovid, dante, shakespeare, milton, goethe. if you disagree, you gay.
>>20794567The Sword in the Storm
>>20794820Gustav Meyrink collection. It's up to me to praise this good name on /lit/ it seems.
>>20794567The Crock of Gold
>>20794567Lord of the rings, stupid frogposter
>>20794567Anything by Calvino
the iron dragon's daughter
>>20794567Translated as: Name a fantasy novel that I agree is good, and also enjoyed.
>>20795628holy. fucking. based
>>20794598This is the answer OP. After reading malazan absolutely nothing else comes close. It's just that good. The first 7 books blew my fucking mind
>>20794580First page of darkness felt like incomprehensible nonsense
Lyonesse trilogy is probs the only good fantasy I've found so far, and I've tried BotNS and Gormenghast. BotNS is an overrated meme and Gormenghast is just alright.
Heard Warhammer is nice.
