James Nicoll linked to this on Facebook and I liked it so much I had to post it here as well.
There are many wonderful authors and books mentioned here. I realize I haven’t read many of the books by Kara Dalkey even though I remember her Goa series positively. Other authors I’ve enjoyed: Cherryh, Fallon, Jemisin, LeGuin, Okorafor, Tarr, Wells.
At one point in my reading 10+ years ago, I deliberately went out of my way to read non-European fantasy. Why? For the sheer, beautiful, variety of it!
There’s one trilogy I remember reading involving a city on the lake of the gods and threats to it. I remember the author was a woman and the culture was Turkish, but can I remember the author or the name of the books now? No.
Anyway, if you are looking for some variety and quality in your fantasy reading I recommend checking out that list!
