Ask Slashdot: Forgotten Fantasy & Science Fiction Novels

jjp9999 (2180664) writes "I've been looking for some good reading material, and have been delving into the realms of some great, but nearly forgotten authors—finding the likes of Lord Dunsany (The King of Elfland's Daughter) and E.R. Eddison (The Worm Ouroboros). I wanted to ask the community here if they know of any other great fantasy or science fiction books that time has forgotten."

Loved "Misenchanted Sword" (1)

The worlds constructed by Lawrence Watt Evans is one of the best, a fresh, original take on magic. I also really like Saberhagen's Sword's series, though the first trilogy is best, it gets a bit old by the 9th one. I don't know whether time has forgotten it, but for science fiction, Dragon's Egg and the McAndrew chronicles are at the top of my list, hard science, beautifully written.
