Title: Appendix N Suggestion
Post by: drkrash on April 18, 2016, 09:56:41 PM
I don't read much fantasy, but I thought I'd branch out a bit since I'm enjoying so much OSR stuff lately.

What might one recommend from the famous Appendix N for someone who especially enjoys Tolkien and Lewis' Narnia? Anything with a similar "feel"?

Here's a list on Amazon. The reviews may help you figure out which is closer to your favorite sub-genre of fantasy.

If you haven't read Robert E. Howard, Edgar Rice Burroughs or H.P. Lovecraft, I would highly suggest checking out their original works.

Of course, as a fan of LotR and Narnia, you may be very interested in the work of Lord Dunsany, as his work certainly inspired and influenced those later works.

Thanks, that helps.

I would also check out Poul Andersons "Three Hearts, Three Lions". You can see its influence on early D&D very clearly besides being a fun, easy little read.
