Algis Budrys recommends
The Broken Lands (1968)
(Empire of the East, book 1)
Fred Saberhagen
"The work of a master."
Songs of Stars and Shadows (1977)
George R R Martin
"George R R Martin has the voice of a poet and a mind like a steel trap."
The Pleasure Tube (1979)
Robert Onopa
"Reads like dynamite... a rare and academically fascinating piece of work, apart from the fact that it moves well and entertainingly. It tackles something fundamental to the human spirit, and conscientiously does it at least well enough to shake any notion that these matters have been sufficiently settled by other artists."
The Blood Jaguar (1998)
Michael H Payne
"The next big name in fantasy."
The Fall of the Kings (2002)
(Swords of Riverside, book 3)
Ellen Kushner and Delia Sherman
"Ellen Kushner writes like an angel... pellucid, poetically structured prose [and] a gathering sense of tragic reality."
Birds (2004)
Sheila Finch
"A damn fine novel."
