Calling all sci-fi heads.

The classics:

Ian M Banks "consider Phlebas"
Alfred bester "the stars my destination"
Greg Bear "Hull three zero"

Trash sci-fi but I love it:

James Axlers "Deathlands" series.

What's yours?
Jack Vance - Durdane Trilogy
& Planet of Adventure (Tschai)

Ian M Banks - The Culture Books

James S. A. Corey - The Expanse
(Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck)

.....I like big book sequences
& universe building!

Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy
1984
Brave New World
Animal Farm
Fahrenheit 451
Speeches by most politicians (or is that more fantasy?)
That's a good, varied selection!
All absolute classics!
Read them as a Teen & loved them.

... Apart from Fahrenheit 451
just couldn't get into that one.
Or the film of it.

Speeches by politicians?
Fantasies.... or delusions!

After hearing Philip K Dick's UBIK described as one of the greatest books ever written by a commentator I enjoy listening to and also reading several times how prophetic and multi-layered the book is and that we are currently living in a world imagined by him decades ago I purchased same and queued-up the book on my Kindle...it joins a long que :)

I've been realy lucky as a reader; the local libraries were good and my favourite bookshops were too!
These days I use Kindle or similar to read.
Oh. There are so many favourites.
How about The Long Earth?
Any steppers out there?
