For thos who like to read sci-fi
    #4417331 - 07/18/05 01:54 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I have read alot of books by alot of authors, but i just finished reading Kelly Armstrong's books and i gotta say, she is a good author i thought. If you like books about werewolfs, witches, sorcerers, demons, vampires, and other things like that, she has 5 books out there now, that are really good.
Other authors i suggest you look at;
Robert Jordan
Terry Goodkind
Robert Heinlein
Anyone else have a Author i can check out? Im running out of books to read, i read way to fast and am always on the lookout for something good i havn't came across before. Sci-fi of course.

Check out Tad Williams. And of course the Hitchhiker series by Douglas Adams- one of the best books ever written IMO.

e.e 'doc' smith is amazing. The Lensman series is extremely good, also inspired the very first video game.

Stephen King's Dark Tower seiries is really good. I also Like Wiese and Hickman. There's an austrailian author that I enjoyed a a lot too, I think her name is Sara Douglass. She wrote The Wayfarer Redemption and Starman and something else.

Probably the very best science fiction book of all time -- the original "cyber-punk" novel written almost half a century ago -- has to be Alfred Bester's The Stars my Destination (in England it is published as Tiger, Tiger).

It is on every reviewer's top ten list. Short, punchy, gripping, superbly written, just packed with new concepts. An absolute must read.

Here's the first sentence:

"He was one hundred and seventy days dying and not yet dead."

Get it. Read it. Keep it to read again every five years or so. This one has it all.

For a heartwarming tale of a brave Christian girl, check out Justine by the Marquis De Sade.
