Hmmm, my first fantasy novel (unless you dismiss The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe that my 1st grade teacher read to us in class) was Conan of the Isles that my father (not a fantasy fan) had on his bookshelves. I read that when I was 9 and re-read it quite a bit. I was also reading Brian Daley's Han Solo trilogy and some of McIntyre's Star Trek novels. Also, a lot of Pyle's Arthur.I watched the Rankin/Bass Hobbit/RotK and the Last Unicorn. Whe Iw as 11 I discovered Dune and the Silmarillion; it would be a couple of more years before I read the Hobit and LotR.

High School, Dragonlance and teh Videssos cycle as well as Gary's Greyhawk novels. I would be 18-19 and in the Army before I dioscovered Elric and Lovecraft. 

So, I've had a weird experience with fantasy.

I have those on my Amazon wish list. Need to pick them up sometime. I do have a couple of old CAS paperbacks like "Hyperborea."

My name is Tony, and I've been gaming since Christmas Eve, 1981, when one of my aunts was badegered into buy me the 1e Gamma World RPG for Christmas. That's wild and wacky game (combined with the "Mutants and Magic" section of teh 1e DMG) has flavored my gaming ever since. So, I prefer games and settings that mix magic and sorcery: Gamma World, Blackmoor, Rifts, etc.
