Terry Bisson recommends
Iron Tears
Iron Tears (1992)
R A Lafferty
"I love this book ... Lafferty is our unheralded American Garcia Marquez ... a word-slinger totally out of sync with today's slim-fast reductive rhertoric; a sly old buzzard who conjured up fables as luris as Bible stories and tells them in a tornado of words wild enough to drive wood splinters through a windshield."
The Fox Woman
The Fox Woman (2000)
(Fox Woman, book 1)
Kij Johnson
"Kij Johnson reminds us that the magic (and strength) of Fantasy is seeing ourselves in the mirror of the Other. Never has that mirror shimmered more seductively. Look."

Time and Robbery (2012)
Rebecca Ore
"Surprising, puzzling, and delighting us at every turn."
