Ellen Kushner recommends
thumb
The Well-Favored Man (1993)
(Kingdom of Argylle, book 1)
Elizabeth Willey
"A compelling tale to rank with Roger Zelazny's Amber novels."
thumb
Trash Sex Magic (2004)
Jennifer Stevenson
"Ambitious, phantasmagorical, with images that burn into your brain and stay there."
thumb
The Magicians and Mrs. Quent (2008)
(Mrs. Quent, book 1)
Galen Beckett
"I loved reading this piquant page-turner of a retro-modernist fantasy novel. But it's more than just a rattling good time. Like its characters, it is not merely devastatingly clever, but has a heart and a soul."
