Just a comment on what Whiskeyjack wrote above.

It's funny that you mention that, Bakker crediting Erikson. Erikson himself actually credits Glen Cook, author of the Black Company novels, with the reinvention of the fantasy genre.

"The thing about Glen Cook is that with The Black Company he single-handedly changed the face of fantasy - something a lot of people didn't notice and maybe still don't. He brought the story down to a human level, dispensing with the cliché archetypes of princes, kings, and evil sorcerers. Reading his stuff was like reading Vietnam War fiction on peyote." - Steve Erikson, author of Gardens of the Moon view post
