22 Total number of recommendations per author (Fantasy Authors List)


The List contains every fantasy author recommended by seven or
more people. Some authors turned up on enough lists to gain
special status as either "Highly Recommended" or "Recommended."

Second on the list of Highly Recommended authors (appears on 20%
or more of the recommendation lists) is:
Raymond Feist
Joining him are: Terry Brooks, Stephen Donaldson, Robert Jordan,
Guy Gavriel Kay, Mercedes Lackey, Anne McCaffrey, Terry
Pratchett, Melanie Rawn, J.R.R. Tolkien, the Margaret
Weis/Tracy Hickman combo and Tad Williams.
David Eddings is in the number one spot with 154 recommendations
(hardly surprising, since the List originated in
alt.fan.eddings).

Recommended authors (10% - 19%) are:
Lloyd Alexander, Piers Anthony, Robert Asprin, Marion
Zimmer Bradley, Steven Brust, Susan Cooper, Dave Duncan,
David Gemmell, Barbara Hambly, Katherine Kerr, Katherine
Kurtz, Ursula Le Guin, C.S. Lewis, Julian May, Michael
Moorcock, R.A. Salvatore, Janny Wurts and Roger Zelazny
