Guardian books: SF and Fantasy

Too many favourites on here to pick any in particular. Not surprisingly I score better here than on any three of the previous lists combined, with 85 out of 149 books that I have read and also most of Pratchett (though he’s not quite as prolific as Balzac). Indeed, I have reviewed no fewer than 38 of these at greater or lesser length on line, and three of them are in my imminently-to-read pile.
