Between Planets by Robert A. Heinlein
Between Planets by Robert A. Heinlein
Revolution, aliens, young love; hot stuff to a teener. Uncle Bob at his political, inventive best (this tale includes the first literary description of "stealth" vehicles,,,decades prior to their actual construction in "our" world).
THE SILVER STALLION by James B. Cabell
THE SILVER STALLION by James B. Cabell
4.0 out of 5 stars Before Tolkien, July 28 2001
Before "The Fellowship of the Ring" there was "The Fellowship of the Silver Stallion"; the consequences for those who allied themselves in arms with Dom Manuel (The Reedemer), progenitor of generations (mortal and otherwise) and founder of myth.

Perhaps the finest fantasy ever written by an american writer. It will change your life every time you read it. Cabell was brilliant and Heinlein copied him more than once (compare Job: A Comedy of Justice). Cabell was sexy, ironic, consistant. Even Asimov, in his final works attempted to equal the History of Dom Manuel by combining the Robots and Foundation into a single cosmology.
