If you were to choose the best of your writers, how would you choose them? By the evidence of Dreamsnake there should have been a great history of SF behind this name. There is real characterisation and real letting go. There is a real sense of engagement with her characters and as with much [but of course, not all] SF with real personal involvement the SF element is not, perhaps the strongest here: but no more so than in say an Adam Roberts book these days.
I hate to give away anything of the story or draw you in with the mysticism of the deream that is snake. But I feel that those who like the story telling of a Gene Wolfe or an Adam Roberts, who want their feet on a stronger rock than Wolfe when they read but with some mystique in the future unfolding. Dreamsnake captures you in its setting then leads you along...a quiet classic you should ceertainly try.
