What are your favorite sci-fi books or authors?
Roger Zelazny is one of my favorite authors. I like just about anything he has written. I also like Neal Stephenson very much, especially "Snow Crash" and "Cryptonomicon". I also love Ursula K. Le Guin and Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Darkover" novels and Harlan Ellison stories. I really, really, really enjoy "The Algebraist" by Iain M. Banks and Neil Gaiman's short stories and his novel, "American Gods." That's just a subset of the books I love - just what comes to mind. I'm sure I could think of others, given time.
