Lester del Rey recommends
thumb
The Broken Lands (1968)
(Empire of the East, book 1)
Fred Saberhagen
"There are few writers who can do justice to a really rich set of characters and backgrounds, and Saberhagen has already proved he is one of the best."
thumb
Over the River and Through the Woods (1996)
Clifford D Simak
"I always loved his stories, short or long. He made me love them -and the rural America of his childhood - as much as he did."
