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.

  • "Where were you last pluterday" by Paul van Herck
  • 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.
