This led him to read the novels by H.G. Wells, followed by many other classics. Additionally, Chris discovered epic fantasy, beginning with The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and moving through all of Tolkien, through to modern authors like Piers Anthony, Katherine Kurtz, J.K. Rowling and George R.R. Martin.
