Today MJ and I were downtown visiting the Shanghai exhibit at the Asian Art Museum. The museum closed at 5PM but the San Francisco Public Library right next door is open until 6PM! So after the museum we hopped over there and signed up for library cards and headed straight to the scifi section and quickly realized I had no idea what I wanted to read. With so many amazing books in the world I really don’t want to waste my time with something I picked up because it had a pretty cover.
I’ve read most of the classics (Foundation, Dune, Lord or the Rings), pretty much everything ever written by Orson Scott Card, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams, read plenty of Bradbury, Clarke, Asimov, Gibson and Neal Stephenson, have a bunch of Neil Gaiman, Anne McCaffrey and Harry Turtledove books.
So, what are your favorite scifi and fantasy books and authors? What book do I absolutely need to pick up on my next trip to the library?
