- The Dying Earth series is one of the funnest things I've ever read. Easiest vote so far.22w
- Even trying to be charitable to Lin Carter....this isn't a fight, it's a bloodbath .22w
- I'd be curious to hear what has Carter voters voting for Carter.
I don't dislike Carter, but I greatly prefer Vance.22w
- Let's see hmm the guy who wrote the Planet of Adventure series, Dying Earth novels, the Lyonesse trilogy, the Last Castle, the Dragonmasters, Showboat World, Big Planet etc?
Or the guy who wrote Thongorr?
(Though he was a great popularizer and editor).22w
- Carter may not be a better writer than Vance but he might be more imaginative (and that's saying a lot with Vance).22w
- What I've read of World's End does have a nice kitchen-sink-ness that I enjoy, and has kept me keeping my eye open for more World's End books...22w
