This set of webpages was inspired by a friends request for me to list some books I had read and would recommend to him. *grin* So I listed only those books I read at least 3 times or more. The 40 books listed below are only the ones I thought my friend should read first. They are listed in Title aphabetical order. I didn't assign any priorty of which books to read first just that these 40 were more significant than those listed on the author's pages.

I found Fantastic Fiction Website a very useful resource for finding old books published by authors I am interrested in. Here is the URL to the website: http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/
