Number of items on this list[edit]

What is the Harry Potter series doing on this list? It's not even high fantasy!

The point of splitting off the list was to allow it to grow. Removing items because they are not, in fact, high fantasy would make sense, but removing them because you think the list should be shorter is hard to justify, and should be justified, if at all possible, here.

I don't think it should be allowed to grow. IMO 20 exemplers are enough. I think that only the most famous and best selling exemples should be listed. Otherwise, there are million of High fantasy books up there. I don't think that we should make an "exception" for every god damned piece of shit, that is delivered to the market.

I know this would require a major edit, but would the list not better serve, listed by title rather than author. If the purpose of the list is to become increasingly expansive, and thereby illustrative of the shape of the genre, then listing by title would easier provide an interesting and informative overview of the similarities between chosen names. Also, it would make for easier reading. Furthermore, the title of the article is List of High fantasy fiction, and a List of fantasy authors' already exists elsewhere. 11:16, 7 August 2007 (UTC) I'm kind of dissapointed with this page. A lot of these works are more science fiction than High Fantasy like the 'Wheel of Time' series.I guess, from other various articles that no one has come up with a way to categorize most of these. Maybe it could become someone's hobby.(just a joke!)Anyway, I've got this craving for a good High Fantasy book, along the lines of the classic 'Lord of The Rings', but I've a sneaking suspicion that it doesn't exist. Do any of you know of GOOD High Fantasy that's not on this list? I'd appreciate your feedback and comments! Thanx! (talk) 17:24, 25 February 2008 (UTC) Theodore from California

Harry Potter is most definitely High Fantasy. There is most definitely a 'muggle world' and a 'wizarding world', and while coterminous, the are most definitely separate places. Under the wiki's own article, under the section which describes different types of high fantasy, Harry Potter is the third type.Darqcyde (talk) 08:55, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Movies, video games, tv series etc?[edit]

A list of high fantasy movies, tv shows, video games etc. would improve the list.

I came here exactly for this. "Fiction" is not limited to books and literature. I would gladly help improve this list.

Series or Saga?[edit]

Unless explicitly called a "saga", would it not make sense to call them all "series"? I'll be bold and see what the response is. Alan16 talkcount 21:40, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Non-English High Fantasy[edit]

Every help considering high fantasy from the non-English speaking countries would be welcomed. HeadlessMaster (talk) 16:23, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

I have started with the internationalisation of the article, although novels writen in English still make over 90%. Btw, before my edits, the list consisted 100% of the novels writen in English. HeadlessMaster (talk) 17:42, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Alphabetical Order?[edit]

It looks like Lloyd Alexander is on this list twice - once in A, and then once in T. I hesitate to remove it outright; is there a reason why it's under T? Pen name or something?Craeburn (talk) 17:11, 4 April 2012 (UTC) I think mistake, as he was added under "T" by non-registered user without explanation. HeadlessMaster (talk) 21:32, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
