Little-known author's works I've discovered that are very worthy of more exposure.

Both Dune and Vanity Fair have been removed as I fully agree with you: You can hardly call them 'little known'. For the same reason I've removed The handmaid's tale because gem as it is, with ratings by more than 200,000 GR members, it can hardly be called 'little known'.

Thank you!

Rex Sutherlin The Wayward Gifted is "little known" at the moment, but not for long.

Susan Simone I'm not sure VC Andrew's books, *especially* the flowers in the attic series can be considered little known. They were HUGE in the 80's and 90's. Even had movies made after them.

I agree. There are translations of her books in my own language (Dutch) and a little known book wouldn't be translated...

Alexander OK you got my vote( I hope)

Na'ama Yehuda I am not sure if my votes came through, but I tried.. Great list!

LOL - I think once Hollywood discovers a book books can indeed be "Little Known Gems" again. Sometimes, when I talk about a book, people say "That was a book too? I thought that was a movie only"
