I voted F for a lot because you;ve kept most of the things I recall my from own Arthurian kick on your retain list.

The exceptions are M for Mists of Avalon - foundational certainly, I read it more or less when it come out and despite jarring in places it is still on my shelves. I've not re-read it in decades though. I stumbled over MZB with The Planet Savers (probably around 1975) and them went on to inhale all the published Darkover novels and buy others as they came out through the 70s and 80s. I adored them and keep meaning to go back and re-read and see with four decades of experience whether they still hold up for me. Heinlein and MZB were my intro into the genre and despite the horrifying revelations about MZB I can just about detach the author from the work (and I bought them all decades ago).

Zelazny would be a definite M for me too - because Amber.
