Storify of @quartzen's obscure SFF book recs

There are several titles listed that I'd like to track down at a later date.

 

I don't know that I'd consider a couple of these to be "obscure," but maybe that's just because I've actually heard of them.

 

The ones I know, even if only vaguely:

 

5. Mary Gentle's Golden Witchbreed - I haven't read it, but I've cataloged it for my library so I know I already have easy access to it.

 

10. Nahoko Uehashi's Moribito - I've read this and watched the anime based on it. I preferred the anime but remember liking the book well enough. I need to reread it at some point, and then tackle the second book in the series.

 

17. Steven Brust's Jhereg - I read this as part of my readers' advisory class. I don't remember much about it except that it was fun.

 

19. Zen Cho's Sorcerer to the Crown - I own this but haven't read it yet.

 

22. Andrea K. Host's Stray - Another one I own but haven't yet read.
