From: Adam Stephanides 

I think There Are Doors is Wolfe's most underrated book, but it's undeniably
a very strange reading experience.  It's probably his most somber book in
tone, if not in plot.  And if you're looking for the sort of intricately
detailed world found in the NS/LS/SS books, you won't find it here; you'd
probably be better off with the Soldier books (though it's been a long time
since I read them), or with The Dying Earth.

I'm not a huge Vance fan, but I'm probably in the minority in that respect
on this list.  Wolfe has praised The Dying Earth (the first book) very
highly; I suspect that if you asked him, he'd tell you to read that first.
