Books: Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan, Anne McCaffrey, Michael Moorcock and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Movies: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Dragonslayer, Excalibur, Legend, and The Princess Bride.

Television: Can you think of any good fantasy television? Hercules: The Legendary Journeys? Maybe, but no Xena.

The Lord of the Rings - Thanks to the new three-movie adaptation, The Lord of the Rings now gets its own section at PatriotResource.com which is a mix of the books by J.R.R. Tolkien and other adaptations.

Links - Authors, Movies, The Lord of the Rings and Research/Resources.

As I first developed this site, I realized how very little of the fantasy genre that I consider "good." Some of the books I picked were marginal. I have also read some of the Forbidden Realms books (found them shallow and adolescent) and David Eddings (couldn't get into the books, but plan on trying again), Neither are included them here.

I could only come up with three (later, four when I remembered Dragonslayer) movies and a couple of "historical" epics (Braveheart and Gladiator) which were full of plenty of fictions.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys is still a possible addition to a television section, but not Xena: Warrior Princess (although a Calisto page might be in order). With the success of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings at the box office I'm sure that there will be a crop of fantasy knock-offs on television in the coming year and maybe one will actually be good.
