Peter S Beagle recommends

The Island Under the Earth (1969)
Avram Davidson
"The Island Under the Earth reveals that Avram Davidson is at one of those points of discovery and renewal. He's opened out into pure, funny, stimulating fantasy with something more than mere grace and easiness."
thumb
The Vampire Tapestry (1980)
Suzy McKee Charnas
"The best vampire book I have ever read."
thumb
Stolen from Gypsies (2000)
Noble Smith
"Noble Smith's wit and inventiveness and the astonishing range of his learning recreates the picaresque novel almost single-handedly... The book is a pure delight..."
thumb
The Madagascar Manifesto (2002)
(Madagascar Manifesto)
Janet Berliner and George Guthridge
