to start off im currently reading Cloud Atlas and A Scanner Darkley. two completely different aproches to science fiction. Cloud Atlas is about time and the impact that different individuals have on it. i wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie as the book explains the concepts better. A Scanner Darkley by Philip K Dick is about someone on slow d a drug that makes the user act very strange, the book is so well written you begin to wonder who is going mad the reader or the main character. i havent finished them yet so these descriptions may not be correct. favorite Scifi writters are Steve Perry, Douglas Adams and now Philip K Dick

I can't just say one favorite science fiction author. I like Michael Crichton, Phillip K. Dick, Orson Scott Card, and Timothy Zahn. Of course I have to mention Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and Arthur C. Clark. Crime writer Walter Mosley's science fiction endeavors have been solid as well. a few seconds ago · Like

I would have to say " Pawns and Symbols" by Majliss Larson. A Great read about Klingons. [img]http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c80/KMelKang/Star%20Trek/Housepic.jpg[/img]

currently reading joe haldenmans 'the forever war' . Heard that ridley scott had brought the rights to it ,so i thought i would have a look first. story line basically about a conflict in space and the effect of time dilution on the personel . way more to it than that, old book but pretty damn good.

I've just read the progenitor trilogy (kindle) very well written. I'm half way through EON, different pace but quite engrossing all the same. I also tend to devour a lot of space operas, BV Larsen for example.

Re-reading [b]Arthur C Clarke's[/b] Rendezvous with Rama at the moment. So many great authors to list but my favourite would have to be [b]Larry Niven[/b] [Ringworld and The Mote in Gods Eye are awesomw IMHO] and [b]Asimov[/b] ,whose output of quality work is impressive. Read The Forever War a few times over the years and would love to see a film version that does justice to the book.

I'm currently re-reading Frank Herbert's critically-acclaimed Sci-fi masterpiece, DUNE... [img]http://www.arrakis.co.uk/jpg/dune2l.jpg[/img] Love the story, the settings, the characters... Definitely earns the "masterpiece" rank! As for favorite author, though... I'm a mixed bag. I love so many, I can't pick just one, but Frank Herbert's near the top of my list.
