Vote for the next Sci-Fi books to be read - Poll 1

We have so many suggestions that I'm doing 2 polls because there is a limit of 12 selections per poll. Later we can decide whether we want the top 3 from each poll (6 months of books) or the top 6 from each poll (12 months of books). Hyperlinks are apparently not permitted in the polls but if you copy and paste the URL, it is the Amazon.com link to the book with a description.
