Favorite James P. Blaylock Books

Ranking order is based on personal enjoyment and is subject to change over time as some books are reread--which is often in the case with Blaylock books. Quite often, the most currently read one will shoot upward in relative estimation, perhaps later to be replaced by whatever one I then read next. The top few have remained there though.

Mr. Blaylock has written fiction in several genres, including Steampunk (before it had a name), Urban Fantasy, Traditional hobbit-like fantasy, YA, and Horror. I personally like them all. Suggestions for first time readers is sort of difficult. Perhaps you might pick the genre that you enjoy the most as a start and go from there. His fantasy is sometimes pretty eccentric and "off the beaten path", which could make it difficult for some readers to immediately get into. But if you stick with it, you may find--like me--that those are precisely the qualities that are most treasured in reading Blaylock.
