So if your post appears on the next page of a thread, it now alerts me that my info may be lost because the webpage is changing. That's interesting...and caused me to double post.

Harry Potter was my first venture into fantasy, but then Tolkien, King (Dark Tower) and C.S. Lewis

Don't read too much fantasy like I used to. But what got me interested in this genre is probably any King Arthur related movie whether it was from the 50s, 60s, or 80s like Excaliber is what was awesome to watch when I was a kid. Still like watching classics like Legend, Dragon slayer, Conan the barbarian/destroyer, Ladyhawke ect ect if I can catch it on TV. Wish TV would show more obscure fantasy classics like deathstalker, circle of iron, sword and sorcerer, blademaster..ect. ect..more often.

The first five Sword of Truth books. I got bored with them and moved on to WoT.

For me it was definitely Conan both by Robert Howard and Robert Jordan (I actually prefer the Robert Jordan version).

Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander when I was 8ish, then Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King when I was 12-13ish. But I didn't really start reading SF/F as my go-to genre until this past couple years when, in my early 30s, I read GRRM's Game of Thrones and saw what fantasy could be capable of.

Boba Fett Lives
I'm with Danogzilla - Chronicles of Prydain and Eyes of the Dragon. But I also loved mythology, Grimms fairy Tales etc.
