    Gentleman Bastard.

    I haven't read any book in the series, but the name has stuck with me for a while now. Probably means I should at least read the first book... :D

    A Song of Ice and Fire. It sounds epic even on its own, but I think having read and understood the entire series makes the titles x100000000000 more epic

    Why do you hate to admit it? It's a damned good title.

    'The X of the X.' This format's cadence has an antique sort of appeal. The Lord of the Rings, the Name of the Wind, the Eye of the World...

    H.P. Lovecraft's "The Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath" for me, also my favourite work of fiction of all time.

    Speaking of Lovecraft. This is a great title: At the Mountains of Madness.

    He had some great ones for sure. A lot were used for song titles as well.
    "Call of Cthulhu", "Beyond the walls of sleep", and so on.
    He and Tolkien must be the two writers that have had the most influence on music.

    Still prefer Lovecraft though. I don’t think there’s any iconic character like Chtulhu in LOTR, but I’m sure a lot would disagree with me.

    Hard to choose... LOTR started lots of things. Conan, The Hour of the Dragon was my favorite book as a child. Diplomat of Uram is my favorite book this year. Solomon Kane is probably my all-time pick.

    Fascinating. What attributes of that novel peaked your interest?
