There are quite a large number of those I've never heard of. Perhaps we can use this list to narrow down what we read next year.

Adria Cimino | 10 comments I've heard a lot of good things about Kindred by Octavia Butler, which is on the list. Looks like a lot of interesting choices on this list!

We've already read Kindred as a group, but it is a good one.

Michele | 144 comments Glad to see Ken Grimwood's Replay on the list. It's an underrated classic, IMO, and not nearly well known enough.

We read that one a couple of years ago as a group (but you know that). I found a waterlogged copy of it in a used book store years ago and loved it. It was only when we read it in this group that I discovered that Grimwood was born in a city nearby the rural near-bookless wasteland where I grew up, so I feel some sort of intellectual bookish affinity with him. He seems like an interesting guy to have known. Too bad his more interesting sounding other novels are impossible to find at a reasonable price without stumbling upon them accidentally in a used bookstore.

Isa Briarwood Ken Grimwood's book Replay is one of my favorites. I don't usually hold onto novels after I've read them, but this is a book I plan to reread a few times. I've recommended it to tons of people since I first found it about 7 years ago.
