All authors start out laboring away in obscurity. Some rise out of it, yet not all great authors get the chance to. We started Thinklings in order to help obscure-but-talented writers become less of the former and more of the latter. We know we're still quite an unknown company ourselves, but we aim to put the “cure” in obscure! (And you can help by spreading the word* about us!)
Without further ado, here are some fantastic, less-well-known books by famous authors of fantasy and sci-fi:
