Category Title Author Rating Description
Fantasy A Fire Upon the Deep Scott Rosenberg
This is one of those novels that propels science fiction as a genre to the top of the literary heap.
Fantasy Anvil of the World Kage Baker
One cannot help but compare this book to the Discworld series, but this is far from copycat material.
Fantasy The Silmarillion J.R.R. Tolkien
This is Tolkien's true masterwork, to my mind, but it should not be read until after you've completed Lord of the Rings.
Fantasy The Phoenix Guards Steven Brust
The same fantasy world found in the Vlad Taltos books is shown from a very different perspective.
Fantasy Black Sun Rising C.S. Friedman
Truly unique fantasy with a bit of Anne Rice gothic flair.
Fantasy Lord of the Rings J.R.R. Tolkien
Ok, I admit it: now that LoTR has penetrated the popular consciousness, it's not as special to me as it once was.
Fantasy The Renshai Trilogy Mickey Zucker Reichert
Drawing heavily on Norse mythology and culture, these three novels are Reichert's best works to date.
Fantasy Paladin of Souls Lois McMaster Bujold
A bit of spin on the typical fantasy tale.
Fantasy Lord of Castle Black Steven Brust
The series is winding down.
Fantasy The Legend of NIghtfall Mickey Zucker Reichert
Nightfall is a master of stealth, swordplay, and possesses an innate magic ability.
Fantasy The Renshai Chronicles Mickey Zucker Reichert
Set 500 years after the original Renshai trilogy, the next three books are a severe disappointment.
