Fantasy is one of the most visible genres in popular culture - we see the creation of magical and imagined worlds and characters in every type of media, with very strong fan bases in tow. This latest guide in the successful Bloomsbury Must-Read series covers work from a wide range of authors: Tolkien, Philip Pullman, Terry Pratchett, Michael Moorcock, Rudyard Kipling and C.S Lewis to very contemporary writers such as Garth Nix and Steven Erikson. If you want to expand your range of reading or deepen your understanding of this genre, this is the best place to start.

    這本和 100 Must-Read Science Fiction Novels 同作者、同系列,只不過晚了三年推出。

    既然同系列,內容的編排架構也就大同小異。一樣是一百本「必讀」的奇幻小說,每本花一頁半進行作者與作品的介紹,文末一樣附上同作者或同主題的延伸閱讀作品。

    這本和 100 Must-Read Science Fiction Novels 同作者、同系列,只不過晚了三年推出。

    既然同系列,內容的編排架構也就大同小異。一樣是一百本「必讀」的奇幻小說,每本花一頁半進行作者與作品的介紹,文末一樣附上同作者或同主題的延伸閱讀作品。

    選書方面各次文類該有的都有選到,一些選書和我挑的有所出入,不過這本來就是見人見智的問題。英倫體系的作品選的還是比較多,不過有些似乎和 Orion / Gollancz 出版的 Fantasy Masterworks 系列雷同。

    只是比起科幻那本,"Introduction" 寫得就稍微遜色。大體上還是著重在奇幻與科幻的區別,和奇幻文類發展史上。由於奇幻史不像科幻史,在新浪潮之前可說蓋棺論定,讀起來感覺比較沒說服力,不過該提的還是都有提到。
