Sci-Fi suggestions

[ #3202 ]

Thanks to all that gleefully piped a few entries ago on other good sci-fi reads. I'll get to them as my queue allows. I'm a fairly slow reader. I expect to start _Day of the Triffids_ tonight (which is a 50's book, not a 60's one. My bad).

  • and start with Jules Verne? :) Too often overlooked but is considered to be the father of the genre and rightfully so. Many of his books are coming back into print and you'll see a list of them over on axis of aevil :)

    • I may get around to good ol' Jules. I did read 20K Leagues at point in grade school. Well's was a rough contemporary, which satisfies my requirements. Although I like a good read, I've choosen a set of books that show the changing nature of Sci-Fi. It's kind of like a college class. The World Wars are a kind of gravity well that has affected many of the last century's (!) writers. That's what I'm tracking.

      And, I was at your site today! Check your server logs!
  • For the best space opera I've seen, try Iain Banks. He's one of the very few scifi authors I care for these days.
