Most Influential Fantasy AuthorsRambles
The Top Ten
J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis are the most inspired writers of all time, everyone aspires their creation to live up to the standard of Middle-Earth and Narnia. However Tolkien definitely is the most brilliant author to the fantasy world, he's creation is far beyond anyone. - felixh24

He is the reason why Jk Rowling and George RR Martin are famous
Oh yes, Wheel Of Time series. - Metal_Treasure
He's not a fantasy author.
This dude ain't an author (nor is he associated with the fantasy genre). - Aragorn98
Shouldn't be on the list. He's a film director. Not an author (also he's more influential in sci-fi cinema).
