A man who could get people to reveal their innermost thoughts, fears, and hopes and present them to his readers and listeners in such a way to get them to feel that moment in all its fullness. A national treasure. Gone at 96. A good long run, and much good work done along the way. Go out and read a copy of The Great Divide or Hard Times if you've never done so, or if it's been a few years since you have. I can think of no better way to pay tribute to the man.

Instructions: "This is a list of the 50 most significant science fiction/fantasy novels, 1953-2002, according to the Science Fiction Book Club. Bold the ones you've read, strike-out the ones you hated, italicize those you started but never finished, and put an asterisk beside the ones you loved."


Here it is )

Note: I have never not finished a science fiction book I have started (and only a bare handful of books in general).
