  1. The biggest influence for me right now has to be Terry Pratchett. But I have also been doing a lot of general reading in my genre, for the purposes of influence and growth. Tolkien is an influence, too, but simply because everything in modern fantasy is descended from him.

  2. Great list. I’ve gone back and read through classics that I missed or didn’t appreciate the first time around. Dickens, Hemingway, Conan Doyle, and Stephen King have been inspirational.
