    Recommend a very good (semi-)obscure fantasy/sf book

    well.. it was 'obscure' to me.. Stephen Leigh's book, A Quiet of Stone, which i have since found out is the last book in his Neweden series: Slow Fall to Dawn, Dance of the Hag, and A Quiet of Stone. i will be looking out for the first two books now.
