One more list: Fantasy novels that aren’t as well known as they should be

From /r/Fantasy, a user-friendly Wiki for underread fantasy titles. There are quite a few titles I would have voted for on this list . . . let me see . . .

All right, Sherwood Smith’s INDA got quite a few votes, and all of a sudden it seems like I can’t turn around without hearing about TO RIDE HELL’S CHASM by Janny Wurts.

And there are a couple by Martha Wells. Yep, she’s definitely an author who deserves to be far better known than she is.

I do notice OD MAGIC is on here, which may fit the criteria of the list (under 3000 ratings), but really, anything by Patricia McKillip is probably not so very far under the radar. I would say the same for anything by CJ Cherryh. Underread in the sense that everybody and their cousin ought to be reading them, but the authors are certainly well known.

And hey, there’s HOUSE OF SHADOWS! Thank you, whoever you are who voted for it.

Anyway, it’s a handy list where, if you hover over the title, you get a pop-up summary. Clicking on a title takes you to the Goodreads entry. That’s very handy and makes this a fun list to browse through.
