The Underappreciated Algis Budrys
If Cordwainer Smith was a minority taste, let me also recommend Algis Budrys. He was not very prolific, but his best was very good. My favorite was Michaelmas, which I would describe as a book in which someone not unlike an alternate universe Peter Jennings was the secret defender of humanity. Who?, The Falling Torch, Rogue Moon and Hard Landing were all well worth reading.
