I promised I would create my own Top Ten list after I was bemoaning the fact that I didn’t agree with any of the ones I was seeing. (That’ll teach ME)
After trying to put this together, I now understand that it is an impossible task. I’m fairly certain if I did this again tomorrow the list would change. 🙂
Top Ten SF Books I Would Recommend to a Friend
In no order whatsoever:
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
I Will Fear No Evil by Robert Heinlein
Dream Park by Larry Niven and Steven Barnes
Jurassic Park by Michael Chrichton
Foundation by Isaac Asimov
A Mote in God’s Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
On Basilisk Station by David Weber
The Ship Who Sang by Anne McCaffrey
Shards of Honor/Barrayar by Lois McMaster Bujold
I would have included Anne McCaffrey’s Pern but I didn’t want to get into the” is it really SF” debate so I put a different McCaffrey book in the list instead.
If I was in a humorous state of mind while compiling the list it would look entirely different.
Let the debate begin!
What would you include?
