Here’s hoping “Adult Fantasy” racks up my google rating!
Anyway, I recently reorganized my bookshelf, and I decided to add a list of my in-progress collection of Lin Carter’s Ballantine Adult Fantasy book line. That’s Lin up there with the sweet goblet. I would have liked to have hung out with him at a convention, but alas, he’s no longer with us. When I was first fishing around a Seattle used bookstore during what turned out to be the first major paperback purchase of my collection, I picked up several books from this famous series. They’re known for their beautiful covers, and Carter’s editorial vision was to set up a new “canon” of modern fantasy. I’ve added to the collection here and there over the years, and here’s the list as it stands as of today. One day, I hope to complete the set and read all of them, but that’s essentially the quest of a lifetime.
