I’ve watched a lot of science fiction films, but I’ve read far more science fiction books.

There are, perhaps, over a hundred books in my library. I would never buy a science fiction book in an electronic format. It’s just not right.

I’m a fan of space opera, hard science fiction, and cyperpunk (William Gibson).

Today, I present of list of epic science fiction series that are in my library.

Isaac Asimov – The Foundation Novels

A classic series.

Ian Bank – The Culture Novels

Thanks for the recommendation Brandon.

Greg Bear

The Forge of God & Anvil of Stars

Orson Scott Card – Ender’s Saga & Shadow Saga

My brother recommended the Shadow Saga after reading Ender’s Shadow.

Peter F. Hamilton – The Commonwealth Saga & The Void Trilogy

Did I mention that I like hard science fiction?

Anne McCaffrey


Jack McDevitt – The Alex Benedict Novels & The Academy Novels

One of my favorite authors.

I have Firebird on deck, and I realized this morning that my copy of Polaris is signed.

Frederick Pohl – The Heechee Saga

Alastair Reynolds – Revelation Space

Another one of my favorite authors. Chasm City turned me on to space opera.

I’m reading Blue Remembered Earth right now.

John Varley -The Gaean Trilogy & Thunder and Lightning

Just plain fun.

Sten, if you’re reading this, I still have your copy of Snow Crash. I am willing to negotiate for its safe return.
