To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page.
The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.
Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number.
If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series.
Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.

Mithgar Deutsch. The plot doesn't have to be some clear cut good v evil but I wouldn't mind that either. I'm sure there has to be plenty of good Tolkien clones out there for me to read :. On its surface it seems generic but the author imbues the series with a lot of depth and characterization. I really enjoyed his take on "Dwarves" and "Elves". It also has a lot of wait for the story to build up, but once the story begins to roll, you'll appreciate the story a lot more. By far one of the best series I have read.
Not entirely tolkeinesque but the Riftwar Saga, by Raymond E.
Voyage of the Fox Rider
It has elves dragons dwarves wizards and array or political play too. Michael Scott Rohan came closest to Tolkein for me in some respects not the Terry Brooks respects, but there's an obvious one, too. Barbara Hambley's Darwath Trilogy is good too. Tad Williams worth a look as well.

Raymond E. Maybe not Glen Cook though, starting to deconstruct already. I just wanted to narrow out some of the more meh stuff before I started diving into the broadest subgenre of fantasy there is. Hate to say it but there's bound to be some bad stuff in there somewhere.
Ah, but you are applying a subjective filter here. For some readers, no doubt most of what you seek falls into the "bad stuff" category, largely because they are Tolkien clones. Basically, if you want better recommendations, tell us what else you have read that fits your criteria and what doesn't.

Otherwise just scan the shelves for books from the 80s that people still talk about, and chances are you've found the right sort of stuff. The first half of the first book is painfully similar to the LoTR, but it comes into its own pretty well after that. But yeah, if you want LOTR-ish, this is a great series to go to. It's hard not to get closer to a clone in many ways of Tolkien than Dennis L. McKiernan and his Mithgar books. Dragondoom is quite a standout work though, and I recommend it highly.
I tried Trek to Kraggen-Kor, and it was such a close clone that even my year-old self, looking for a Tolkien clone , could not get into it at all. I don't remember it being very well written, but mainly it was so similar, you might as well just read Tolkien again which I think I did. Just to give the rest of you a flavour of it, one of his hobbits sorry, 'warrows' is named Perry, which is short of Peregrin!
Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. It was before the boom away from Tolkien.

It definitely reminded me of Lord of the Rings, although it is much more epic, both in sheer size 14books and has a deeper world with a clearer defined magic system. That's gonna be a doozy then because Middle-earth is pretty deep. I'll definitely pick up those books then. Thanks a lot!
The reason it's deeper is not necessarily because of the Tolkien level of commitment to the world e. Tolkien is a master at world building, but the LotR books are only a small portion of everything he wrote about Middle Earth. Jordan uses everything he created about the world of Wheel of Time and weaves it into the books and it usually works out very well. Sometimes he gets almost too much like Tolkien with the descriptions though, so be warned there. It actually seemingly wraps up a lot of plot by the end so it could be considered as a standalone. As far as I know when Jordan wrote it he never said it would the first book of many.
Oh I didn't know that. I would have loved to know what things were initially planned for the trilogy. Surely he didn't plan everything we have now included in the trilogy :. A bit of both I'd say. Let me put it like this. There's a reason why the first three seem so relatively self-contained. That's why they're so tight and full of stuff.

But Eye sold and he started to tentatively seed additional stuff, all the while keeping originally planned threads and just altering them to fit the larger scope. As of 3 the decision to expand was fully made. Quite a few things speak to that, but he still kept to parts of the original outline. Think about it like this, and I'm gonna raise a spoiler tag here Vaguely kept WoT spoilers. Oh this is a good point. I thought maybe the trilogy just grew to be 14 books instead, but you're right in that the first three books could be somewhat self-containable.
WoT is very slow between or 11 but I think it was worth it. Sanderson's finishing 3 books are a bit different but do instill a needed breath of fresh air. Donaldson were written purposely to be like Tolkien. It was actually published the same year as The Fellowship of the Ring, so it's not actually a clone but "pre-Tolkien" in some ways. But Anderson was strongly influenced by some of the same things as Tolkien, particularly Norse mythology and epics.
