Recommended Speculative Reading

Posted by: Jenny Schwartz
Do you have books that you recommend as classics in their speculative fiction subgenre? Here are a few of mine, most of which exist as battered and beloved copies on my bookshelves.

Space Opera
The Witches of Karres by James H Schmitz

Paranormal Romace
Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Paranormal Historical Romance
Bride of the Rat God by Barbara Hambly

Fantasy series
The Discworld books by Terry Pratchett

"Clockwork Fagin" a short story by Cory Doctorow

Urban Fantasy
Sacred Ground by Mercedes Lackey

Science Fiction
The Mind Readers by Margery Allingham  (This masquerades as a thriller in her mystery series starring Albert Campion, but it's SF, and as with all her books, wonderful)

Children's books
Archer's Goon by Diana Wynne Jones
