The Lord of the Rings
C. S. Lewis's space trilogy
Arthur Machen's autobiographical Far-Off Things
Dostoevsky's Demons
-------------- Brothers Karamazov
Tolstoy's Anna Karenina
--------- War and Peace
Shakespeare's Winter's Tale
Norwegian Folk Tales (Asbjornsen and Moe, illus by Kittelsen and Werenskiold)
