Going to blog a little today. People were talking yesterday about sci-fi and fantasy works that are popular, but bad. Let's flip that. I want to stay positive (for once). What are some sci-fi or fantasy books that are either unfairly maligned or relatively unknown?

Obviously Wheel of Time is unfairly maligned for being too long. I say no such thing 🤷🏻‍♂️

As an author, I'm much like Robert Jordan. I never finished the Wheel of Time, either.

Hmmmm, relatively unknown....the Tiger and Del series. Had a bit of that Conan aspect. Started in the mid 80s. First book is 2.99 on kindle and is called Sword-Dancer.

I read the first four, was surprised to hear they'd been extended further.

I'll throw one out there: The Battletech universe fiction was, while not of the highest literary quality, fun and generally well paced.

A lot of really good stuff gets forgotten in the children’s section: The Gammage Cup and The Whispers of Glocken Chronicles of Prydain Varjak Paw The Book of the Dun Cow City of Ember Deltora Quest

I remember Prydain being one of my best childhood library finds.

Arthur C. Clarke's best book is Rendezvous With Rama. Way better than 2001 and Childhood's End.
