Philip José Farmer recommends
The Pastel City
The Pastel City (1971)
(Viriconium, book 1)
M John Harrison
"Harrison makes a tone poem of the far distant future where men and creatures which delight and terrify the imagination fight in the never-ceasing battle of good against evil."

West of Eden (1984)
(Eden, book 1)
Harry Harrison
"Brilliant...a hell of a gripping story."
