A member of the A Song of Ice and Fire forum at Westeros.org, Wastrel, put into motion a plan to collate favorite genre book lists from members of the forum. What has resulted is a list of 100 books that members of the forum who participated in the voting esteemed most, plus some additional titles for honorable mentions and a list specific to 21st century novels.
It was quite the task to take on, and Wastrel explains his methodology very thoroughly. It’s fascinating to see Gabriel Garcia Marquez rubbing shoulders with Thomas Mallory, Douglas Adams, and Alan Moore, to name a few on the list.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
