Tim asked which are my favorite book or story.
I will dodge that question because it might be
too definitive for something personal.
When I was about 12, I had somehow begun
reading the robot stories by I.Asimov.
Among these were The Robots of Dawn and I, Robot.
Around this time I was also crazy about reading Ray Bradbury's stories, including the Martian Chronicles.
My favorite authors in science fiction
included most prominently (in no particular order) Asimov, Bradbury, Simak, Stapledon, sometimes Clarke (ie. short stories), and sometimes Heinlein. Those not mentioned
are not slighted but spared mention for now.
Some might think Simak was too easy to read,
but I did not mind.
Some of the best books are
The Greatest Science Fiction Short Stories of All Time (Hugo Award Winners) and a collection called Assignment in Tomorrow.
James P. Hogan of course has added much to the
field. I don't confuse it for reality.
Do you read science fiction, Tim?
