And now, for something a little different... Are you looking for something with a little more class and panache? Something that gives you characters and authors that really have something to say besides laying out plot, character, and action, at the expense of ::cough:: theme? Then here is your section. Listed below will be novels and authors that the snob-class college-educated refer to as classics. But don't be turned off by this description, don't scamper away just because the title is CLASSICS, there are some extraordinary works within this subgenre of Literature to be experienced, and you can take my word for that, as a very picky reader. Long-time visitors should know by now that I do not recommend novels and authors lightly. These are what I consider to be the best under the heading of classics. It's a new and under construction section, so expect it to grow in the coming months. Give these a try; you may find something here you like!
