The Aggregate Stats
- Total number of works/series/authors on the list: 15/7/24
- Author with most works on the list: Frank Herbert, with 6 books on the list
- Most consistent pattern: Historical Fantasies. Rather than take the ideas and culture and build their own world, about half the series on the list placed their stories in a serious historical context.
- Biggest overall surprise: No fantasies with the magic based on ancient Egyptian mythology. I would have assumed that would be more popular, but no.
