Ok, since noone else has mentioned it so far....

The wheel of time series, by Robert Jordan.

and second:

Dune, by Frank Herbert.

Both are masterpieces, and i've read them over and over.

Pet Semetary - Stephen King

Terry Pratchett (e.g Feet Of Clay) and Aliens & Aliens vs Predator Series (e.g Female War and Prey). Shogun and The Silmarillion also feature highly as well as the trilogy of Arthur novels by Bernard Cornwell (e.g Enemy of God).

    The Xeelee series (Stephen Baxter, "Vacuum Diagrams" being a good starting book), the Uplift series (David Brin, "Sundiver" being a good starting book), the Known Space series (Larry Niven, "Ringworld" being a good starting book), and the Foundation series (Isaac Asimov, "Foundation" being a good starting book) are the best books ever written. Or at least something close.


    Yes indeed. I love those earlier science fiction books. Foundation should be a must read for anyone. And Ringworld....omfg they REALLY need to make that into a movie. Nowadays it can be done very easily. Shikari you read the newer Foundation books by Greg Bear and others?

    Of course I have! They're great books, and they were the ones that introduced me to Greg Bear, David Brin, and Gregory Benford (all great authors!)

    I forgot to mention a fifth favorite series, the Culture series by Iain M. Banks. Its definitely one of the best out there.

    I have to say that Flux is probably one of my favorite books of all time. Unlike most Stephen Baxter books, it has good characterization, but most of all the entire concept is so creative, so wild, so completely off-the-wall that I absolutely loved it. Sunstorm is also a favorite of mine: how much better can you get than an "end of the world" book about the triumph of humanity over an oncoming disaster rather than its destruction?

    No it's because the DMs I play with don't allow book sharing between players during the game. =D
