    23 on the list I've read. I don't really read fantasy, so that portion is inapplicable to me. No Stanislaw Lem on the list, which is a shame. Solaris alone is a masterpiece and he's written a lot of other great stuff.

    Anything highly recommended? I'll be looking for something new once I'm done with the Game of Thrones books.

    Well, if you want epic and lengthy, there's The Foundation Trilogy which makes Game of Thrones seem very limited in scope by comparison. It takes place over many millenia, throughout the universe. "Childhood's End" is absolutely mind-blowing. It left my jaw hanging after I finished it. And anything by Bradbury, especially for me his short story collections. The Martian Chronicles are fantastic, as is "The Illustrated Man." "Long After Midnight" is another great collection which includes the rare non-sci-fi fiction stories, including the titular short story which also absolutely blew my mind. In my opinion, he was one of the greatest American writers of all time, regardless of genre.

    I got to read Solaris for a class.

    It was never mentioned in class, but my prof had just lost his wife. :/

    One series you might like is The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever by Stephan R. Donaldson
    The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Another great book if you can find it is Battle Royale by Koushun Takami which had an english translation released thru Viz media in 2003.
