75 must-read geek books

Little, Big

TechRepublic Senior Editor Selena Frye recommends Little, Big. She says: "John Crowley's fantasy masterpiece about the world of faery subtly intersecting with the 'real' world won the World Fantasy Award for best novel in 1982. His writing often defies easy categorization, incorporating elements of fantasy, history, and mysticism along with realistic story lines and characters. Crowley teaches fiction writing at Yale and is also a recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award for Literature. Along with Little, Big, check out his Aegypt series, early science fiction (The Deep, Engine Summer), and recent novel about Lord Byron and his daughter Ada Lovelace."
