Best Outside-the-box Speculative Fiction
Not your ordinary sword and sorcery or galactic war stuff. Think China Mieville, Gene Wolfe, Peake, and such.

No voting for yourself. Self votes will be deleted. And no sock puppeting. And no 10 people voting 1 book 1 out of 1; it's obvious.

Haha, awesome: a lot of these authors are already on my "to-read" list. Mervyn Peake, China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker and R. Scott Bakker being the ones I want to get to as soon as possible. But I'm going to get through Daniel Abraham's books first because I have been waiting forever and finally got the chance to (who is also on the list).
