Default JRRT or GRRM?

Whose fantasy fictional universe do you prefer?

Both have epic landscapes and a huge draw of characters, strong central motivations that are themed around 'the desire for power' in their own way.

Or do you think there are other fantasy authors that are just as epic in their scope, and endure the 21st century as well as these two?

Default Re: JRRT or GRRM?

Isaac Asimov

But i'm not sure he qualifies in the fantasy style, rather sci-fi.

Asimov is science fiction fantasy, whatever that means, if I am not wrong.

Tolkien is the original and I love his books, though they can be difficult to read at some parts. GRRM has lots of great female characters, which I love, but sometimes lazy writing.

They're both great in their own ways
