Great list, Mr Martin. I've read a few of your listed authors and enjoyed them and there's a couple I tried to read years ago and should probably check them out. I just wrote them down so I can look for them in charity shops and on Kindle sales and so forth :-) Last week I actually bought a couple of Lovecraft books on my new Kindle as I recalled him being mention as one of the greats but I decided to indulge myself by rereading AGOT first!

For anyone else who reads this, my particular vote of approval goes to Bernard Cornwell especially Sharpe and the Warlord Trilogy (King Arthur), as well as to TH White. Yes, I'm an Arthurian enthusiast :) On that note, some people may like to know that Tolkein's unfinished Arthurian poetic work is being published in May!

I would like to recommend a couple of things that aren't on the above list - Naomi Novik's Temeraire series which blends history and fantasy by incorporating dragons into the Napoleonic Wars. Also Sophia McDougall's Romanitas which features the Roman Empire in the 21st century.
