@Mark Lawrence put this up on his blog, and I thought it was really interesting and people in here might wanna talk about it.

He's getting his data from here:

I was pretty shocked by where some of my favorite authors placed on this list!

What I found interesting is that GRRM didn't make the chart (he's #10 in the list).

My conclusion: most people in the world don't know what the good books are :P ;D
At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

I was really amazed about Andre Norton. And it’s too bad she isn’t dead today like Agatha Christie still is. “Moon of Three Rings” was a pretty mind-blowing experience for me as a teen.
