Here are some of my favorites...

For fellow sci-fi aficionados, here's a list of some of my favorite books, mostly in no particular order (ranking any of these being a rather pointless exercise). ... and if you are looking for classic sci-fi short stories, I recommend The Science Fiction Hall of Fame collection, edited by Silverberg, 1970.

Some of my favorite authors who are notably missing from the above list (having in many cases more very good books, but none that quite make the top-n) include Theodore Sturgeon (who mostly wrote short stories), David Brin, H. G. Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, and, of course, Robert Heinlein (at least, nearly anything he published before 1970). Neil Gaiman seems likely to earn his way onto the list, when I get a chance to read more of his work.

I'm always seeking recommendations on good books to read. If you want to introduce me to your favorites, get in touch...
