FANTASY ARCHIVE

The list of books below were read between 1988 and 1995, rated at that time, but not reviewed. Eventually, I may get around to re- reading them -definitely for the good ones!

The ratings in this section may not be too accurate, as the rating system has been changed, and my tastes and maturity have evolved since I read most of these books.

PIERCE ANTHONY
A tongue-in-cheek fantasy author, with some really cool concepts in the fantasy genre.
3 stars GOLEM IN THE GEARS
Read 1993-01-08 to 1993-01-11
2 stars THROUGH THE ICE (with Robert Kornwise)
Read 1993-01-05 to 1993-01-07

ISAAC ASIMOV
The only fantasy book I read during this period was a set of short stories dealing with a magical not-from-this-world tiny being whose results never matched his intentions.
3 stars AZAZEL
Read 1991-07-06 to 1991-07-26

CLIVE BARKER
Generally regarded as a horror writer, this fantasy novel deals with a civilization hidden in a carpet!

Read 1989-10-24 to 1989-11-21

URSULA LEGUIN
