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.
