Looking for book…

Looking for book recommendations? While visiting, Jason asked for recommendations for good sf/f. He mentioned that he liked Dan Simmons' Hyperion and Guy Gavriel Kay. I immediately dragged a whole bunch of books off my shelf for him to look at -- I thought some of you might be interested too. These are all really worth a read, in my opinion:

  • Peter S. Beagle, The Rhinoceros Who Quoted Nietzsche (short stories)
  • Francesca Lia Block, Weetzie Bat
  • Octavia E. Butler, Dawn (start of trilogy)
  • Jonathan Carroll, The Marriage of Sticks
  • Pamela Dean, Tam Lin
  • Carol Emshwiller, The Start of the End of It All (short stories)
  • Molly Gloss, The Dazzle of Day
  • Lisa Goldstein, The Red Magician
  • Barbara Hambly, Dragonsbane
  • Nina Kiriki Hoffman, A Red Heart of Memories
  • Nalo Hopkinson, Midnight Robber
  • Barry Hughart, Bridge of Birds
  • Kij Johnson, The Fox Woman
  • Ellen Kushner, Swordspoint
  • Kelly Link, Stranger Things Happen (short stories)
  • Patricia A. McKillip, The Riddle-Master of Hed (start of trilogy)
  • Patricia A. McKillip, The Tower at Stony Wood (stand-alone)
  • Joanna Russ, The Female Man
  • Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow
  • Connie Willis, Doomsday Book
