Take a stroll through any mega bookstore, and you will be inundated with countless fantasy fiction books. A few will be great fantasy books, some will be good fantasy books, and most will be bad fantasy books. Finding a good fantasy novel is difficult, like sifting for gold among sand. But occasionally, just occasionally, you'll find that rare nugget, that grain of gold to forever treasure.
Some have a negative perception towards fantasy literature (especially those who read only "mainstream" literature) as being cheesy, badly written, and cliche. Yet, rest assured there are some very well written fantasy books out there -- books that can compete arm to arm with "literature". You just have to know where to look.
BestFantasyBooks.com is your number one source for fantasy and science fiction recommendations -- books, comics, anime, movies, and games. We've spent countless hours creating detailed recommendation lists to suite EVERY fantasy fanboy's taste.
Make sure to check out our new sister site devoted to ONLY science fiction: BestScienceFictionBooks.com. It's still in development, but there are a number of recomendation lists ready, including our Top 25 Best Science Fiction Books.
After a very long delay, we present you with the new version of the Best Fantasy Books site. It's been a very long time in coming: we've been working on the site update since October 2013 -- for over a year straight.
And at last, it's done.
There's a lot of new stuff here for you guys: brand new book lists and all the core main lists completely updated. Everything is updated for 2015 and there's a ton of new features to be found on the site layout and on the lists themselves-- many features designed to help you guys better find the best books by better integrating crowed ratings, recommendations, and meta information about books.
So make sure you poke around on the new site, check out the new lists, check out the updated lists, and play with the new features. I'm still editing the lists, so you'll have to cut some slack for spelling and punctuation. If you find errors with the writing or bugs on the site with some of the new features, please send an email and let me know the issues (this would be very helpful!).
