Title: Forgotten Realms
Post by: david_heath on October 23, 2019, 10:11:58 am
I recently stumbled across FORGOTTEN REALMS, the series of novels based in the campaign setting for the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. It looks as though there are about 295 of the things (including anthologies)! One person has even created their own spreadsheet and reckons itíll take the best part of 10 years to read them all! (Then thereís the debate about whether you should read the novels in publication order or chronological order). I donít really have time for that. So is anyone familiar with this series and, more importantly, can recommend a few of these books to read? To put it bluntly, which ones are the best?

Wikipedia helpfully supplies a complete list of these novels if that helps:
