A Listmania! list by Ben "Ben"
The list author says: "I also have an 'Excellent Fantasy' list, which has a couple of duplicate entries, but this list is reserved for titles less conscientious of a strict narrative or well-defined genre. The books here tend to belong to a strange category: not scifi, not fantasy, not horror, but interstitial to all three genres. Hence the odd list name.

It's just a list of titles for now; comments on each will eventually follow. More titles as well."
