I had a bookcase with a shelf dedicated soley to the work of David Eddings, including a little crystal rose that sat there, based on one of his fantasy novels magical mcguffins.

Since learning Eddings and his wife both did time in prison in the 70s for child abuse, and had their kids taken from them, I don’t have the same warm fuzzies and have taken that collection and stored it with old textbooks in the garage.

The shelf has been a general mishmash since then, but I miss the look of a themed shelf.

Now debating whether that shelf should be Classical Mythology, or Dungeons and Dragons stuff (gamebooks and novels).
