This is it bro. If you want to read Malazan read this first then go back and read the first book, it was written ten years before it was published and completely incomprehensible to newfags

Commercial fiction has produced absolutely nothing of value, and its transition into a trailer park for faggots is probably an improvement.

The Broken Sword

I doubt you read much of anything if that's your grand analysis of literature and "commercial fiction" which is funny considering the majority of the so-called "canon(s)" are shilled by the Big Five and academia to make you buy their books and critical introductions, monographs, as well as companions.

There's this underrated writer named JRR Tolkien. He wrote a novel named Lord of the Rings. You should read it sometime.

This is the answer OP. After reading malazan absolutely nothing else comes close. It's just that good. The first 7 books blew my fucking mind

>>20794580
First page of darkness felt like incomprehensible nonsense

Lyonesse trilogy is probs the only good fantasy I've found so far, and I've tried BotNS and Gormenghast. BotNS is an overrated meme and Gormenghast is just alright.

Heard Warhammer is nice.

Mother of Learning
Warlock of the Magus World
