    Like Leguin's EarthSea, McKillip's RiddleMaster books are a must read in classic fantasy. Why is there such a thing as a riddlemaster and how can he be the cnetral figure in a classic quest? A wonderful bit of imagination.

    Why this series is not more popular is beyond me. The middle book drags a little but it's far better than so many of the books that are rated far above it on this list.
