A similar number, though I remember from last time you did a list like this that I'm the only one of our circle who has read "Arslan". :)

The fantasy masterworks are also a great list.

If ever I moved country suddenly and got lots of money for doing so, I'd just order the complete fantasy & SF masterworks and be done with it.

70. They really dig Samuel Delaney, don't they?

Very struck by Helliconia being one entry when it's a honking trilogy. That must be a huge volume ...
