I read a lot of fantasy and sci fi, as I'm sure many here at this forum do as well. So I wanted to start a thread where people could post fantasy and sci fi series that they would recommend to others. I'll start off with one of my favorites, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. The series is a contemporary fantasy that recounts the adventures of Harry Dresden, a sort of combo wizard and private detective based in Chicago, who faces off against werewolves, vampires, faeries, ghosts and Lovecraftian entities to various degrees throughout the 15 book series. I like how Dresden as a character has a very "every man" feel to him, which I think allows the character to resonate with readers of the series.
