Treason's Shore

Going Bovine


Sherwood Smith

Libba Bray

Terry Pratchett




MG/YA Fantasy/Science Fiction


Ender's Game
Orson Scott Card

Earth prepares for the Buggers' next attack by training children in the art of War. His brother was too violent. His sister too passive. Ender is a rare 'third' child and the hope of the Military.

Tortall series
Tamora Pierce

Strong female leads in each of these series. A wonderful interconnectedness as the story - and women's equality - progresses in the land of Tortall. Medieval setting with knights, wizards, thieves, Gods and Goddesses.

Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher
Bruce Coville

How can you lose with that title? The first of the Magic Shop series. I like the whole series, but this was my favorite because I'm partial to dragons. I love Bruce's fantasy. It's light, funny, and very imaginative.

Adult Fantasy/Science Fiction


Honor Harrington series
David Weber

Strong female lead, politics and the cutest little sidekick with razor sharp claws on each of its six limbs - military space opera at its best.

Miles Vorkosigan series
Lois McMaster Bujold

Brittle bones and a society that abhors 'mutants' will not stop Miles from inadvertently taking over the universe and finding love in the process.

Heralds of Valdemar series
Mercedes Lackey

A benevolent monarchy ruled only by someone chosen by a white horse - one of the Companions. But Companions are more than they seem even to the Heralds they bond with. Magic, powers of the mind, and a history that spans hundreds of years. Some with gay main characters, some with young main characters. There's a little something for everyone here.
