Amber Davis cool list


message 3: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed Please, do not post Fantasy books.

A separate list can be created for them.

Not everyone who reads Science Fiction reads Fantasy, and vice-versa.

Please, someone, have the Fantasy titles removed.


message 4: by Bren (new)

Bren MacDibble Slaughterhouse Five and Snowcrash are not comedic.

Can you add Colony by Rob Grant? That was hilarious.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could vote for it; it's easy to add books to lists. At the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 6: by Bren (new)

Bren MacDibble Thanks Susanna!


message 7: by Herman (new)

Herman Gigglethorpe Why is "Guards, Guards!" here? It's not science fiction in any sense of the term. It's a lot of fun anyway!


message 8: by Rasheed (new)

Rasheed You are right - it's pure fantasy. Removed it along with several duplicates.


message 9: by Abby (new)

Abby Hah, Douglas Adams takes up the first five. He totally deserves it though.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads He (justifiably) has a lot of fans.


message 11: by J.F. (new)

J.F. Monahan Bit of selfless promotion here - my first published book on Amazon is 'Intergalactic Terrorist' - it's a space comedy! Please check it out - if you like it, add it to this list! :)

Paul Howard Santa Claus vs S.P.I.D.E.R. may not be a novel but it's one of my favorites.


message 13: by Greg (new)

Greg So, does anyone have a recommendation for a Goodreads group for people that have read and enjoyed a number of the books on this list?

Yes I realize the last comment on this was months ago but you never know...

So, responding half a year later... Perhaps you should check out the "Dragons and Jetpacks" group?

Thanks for the tip. I will check that out.

Greegs & Ladders by Zack Mitchell

Fans of Hitchhiker's may enjoy this one.


message 17: by Mike (new)

Mike McGowan Possibly someone on here can help me. I'm trying to remember the author or series title of a comedic sci-fi series that I owned in the early 1990s (maybe around 1992/1993?).

There were at least 2 books in the series, maybe more, they were near future (no more than about 1500 years ahead of today and probably less) and they revolved around the adventures of a team of reporters.

I remember that one of the books in the series began with a chap who was both a decorated soldier and a respected artist using some sort of bomb to sculpt a huge statue.

If anybody can enlighten me as to what these books were/are, I'd be very grateful - I've been looking for ages and haven't been able to identify them yet.

Thanks,
Mike


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Have you tried the group What's the Name of That Book?


message 19: by Teri (new)

Teri Who was the focus of the book? What was the POV? Plot? Are you sure it was future and not time travel or alternate history? Were the journalists the main story or just the scene you remember? Did they travel the galaxy? Similar planet? Could it have been short stories or pieces for magazines that became full novels a la Retief or Sector General? Were they reporters aka this is Jane from team xzy news channel 9, or journalists? Was it sci-fi or possibly fantasy?

The Futurological Congress should be #2 or #3.


message 21: by Benjamin (new)

Benjamin Satko The seven novels written by Douglas Adams are all in the top 10. Excellent.
