I have a big dislike of the Classical Era: Rome, Greece. This saddens me because Mark Charan Newton's new novel will be set in that time period.

I love the Renaissance Era, all the reviving of technology and the arts. And the time right after the fall of Rome till before 1000 AD. I think it's called the Early Middle Ages possibly?

One setting that isn't often done in fantasy, although it's becoming more and more prevalent as well now is the 17th and 18th century in Europe. I quite like that period, but it is tricky to do in fantasy because you've got a lot of elements all coming together.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I'm quite fond of ancient Middle-Eastern styled cultures.
They're becoming more prevalent, which is great for me, because I also enjoy reading about them.

Totally agree.
