Oh no. This is the first time I didn't know immediately who to vote for... They're not even in a similar vein, but this is hard.

Rowling. Haven't read Erikson.
Slow and steady wins the race.

I'm voting Erikson. I never got into Rowling and now it's too late for that.

Rowling wrote an incredibly important and very fun series. My daughter is basically obsessed even at age 30.

I’ve only read Gardens of the Moon so far.

Still voted Erickson. The breadth of imagination and complexity of the world, plus brilliant writing.
