A few weeks ago Scott Taylor posted an essay on the Black Gate magazine blog, "Art of the Genre: Top 10 Fantasy Artists of the Past 100 Years." I've never put much thought into list-making myself—and I don't believe that there ever was or will ever be an absolute, unquestionable "#1" in the arts, be it painting or writing or acting—but it's always interesting to read someone else's opinions as to who they feel are the field's Top Guns. Take a look at Scott's list: do you agree or disagree? If you were making a Top 10 List, who would make your cut and why?
