NoobMember1 XPJan-23-2013 12:40 PMto start off im currently reading Cloud Atlas and A Scanner Darkley. two completely different aproches to science fiction. Cloud Atlas is about time and the impact that different individuals have on it. i wanted to read the novel before seeing the movie as the book explains the concepts better. A Scanner Darkley by Philip K Dick is about someone on slow d a drug that makes the user act very strange, the book is so well written you begin to wonder who is going mad the reader or the main character. i havent finished them yet so these descriptions may not be correct. favorite Scifi writters are Steve Perry, Douglas Adams and now Philip K Dick

NoobMember0 XPJan-23-2013 4:44 PMI can't just say one favorite science fiction author. I like Michael Crichton, Phillip K. Dick, Orson Scott Card, and Timothy Zahn. Of course I have to mention Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and Arthur C. Clark. Crime writer Walter Mosley's science fiction endeavors have been solid as well. a few seconds ago · Like

NoobMember28 XPJan-25-2013 2:09 AMcurrently reading joe haldenmans 'the forever war' . Heard that ridley scott had brought the rights to it ,so i thought i would have a look first. story line basically about a conflict in space and the effect of time dilution on the personel . way more to it than that, old book but pretty damn good.

NoobMember0 XPFeb-15-2013 11:28 AMI've just read the progenitor trilogy (kindle) very well written. I'm half way through EON, different pace but quite engrossing all the same. I also tend to devour a lot of space operas, BV Larsen for example.

NoobMember0 XPApr-19-2013 2:45 PMRe-reading [b]Arthur C Clarke's[/b] Rendezvous with Rama at the moment. So many great authors to list but my favourite would have to be [b]Larry Niven[/b] [Ringworld and The Mote in Gods Eye are awesomw IMHO] and [b]Asimov[/b] ,whose output of quality work is impressive. Read The Forever War a few times over the years and would love to see a film version that does justice to the book.

NoobMember0 XPMay-24-2013 1:16 AMI'm currently re-reading Frank Herbert's critically-acclaimed Sci-fi masterpiece, DUNE... [img]http://www.arrakis.co.uk/jpg/dune2l.jpg[/img] Love the story, the settings, the characters... Definitely earns the "masterpiece" rank! As for favorite author, though... I'm a mixed bag. I love so many, I can't pick just one, but Frank Herbert's near the top of my list.
