K.L. Zolnoski (KLZolnoski) | 6 comments The Rowan series is one of my all time favorite series. For a single book I would have to say Earth by David Brin.

K.L. Zolnoski (KLZolnoski) | 6 comments I love the Star Trek reboot. Fantastically done.

Dune, aye? I just met Sir Patrick Stewart at the Emerald City Comic Con two weeks ago. He had a very funny story to tell about Dune. I actually posted it on my blog over at M31 publishing. I can get you a link if you're interested.

Brian Niemeier (brianniemeier) | 5 comments Dune first; followed by its odd-numbered sequels.


message 9: by Michael (new)

Michael Brookes (technohippy) Excession by Ian M Banks is a great sci-fi novel.

Tamara A | 25 comments it feels like not alot of new books are SI-FI anymore.


message 11: by Mary (new)

Mary Davie (marylouisedavie) | 15 comments My favorite book is Sunstorm by Arthur C Clarke and while I watch every SciFi movie, I haven't found one that I love as much as reading a good book. The mind pictures things so much better than anyone can put in a movie!


message 12: by Jenelle (new)

Jenelle Icarus Hunt by Timothy Zahn is hands-down my favorite sci-fi book of all time.

I enjoyed Dune. I loved Gattica (though I think I have missed the first 15 minutes every time I've watched it...). Huge star wars fan. Recent star trek fan.

Have you read any of the Star Wars books? They're fantastic!

Carl Lee (carllee2850) | 9 comments All time favorite, Ender’s Game…


And of course, I’m really partial to this darn thing that keeps following me around.


A Stone's Throw Away by Carl Lee

Glowing reviews and all. lol, sorry... (but really, one reviewer even confessed to leaving work early to re-engage the story)

I had to coin my own genre: Post-Apocalyptic Sci-fi Action-Adventure Thriller

Perelandra (Space Trilogy, #2) by C.S. Lewis

Simply could not put this book down. Completely different than any other sci-fi I have ever read. A masterpiece.

Tamara A | 25 comments there r endless amazing book


message 16: by Jenelle (new)

Jenelle Oh yes, Ender's Game and Perelandra are also fantastic.

D.J. Have you read the rest of the trilogy? I really liked Out of the Silent Planet, but That Hideous Strength is one of the very few books I just couldn't get through... no matter how hard I tried.

I've always loved CS Lewis' trilogy of Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra and That Hideous Strength. That Hideous Strength is a bit of an uncomfortable read though, mainly because, in my opinion, it exposes some forms of political correctness and post modernism as manipulative tools for the hierarchy as described in the book.

There are some not so pleasant insights into the ways we, as humans, sometimes work. But you have to love Dr Ransom!
