@Random, something wrong with that? Is "The Stand" not pretentious enough?

'I'm glad to see that some of us IABers are well read. I, too, have read and enjoyed many of these books. My favorite will always be "The Stand".'

Well read.

The Stand.

not read sci-fi or fantasy for years, with the exception of Mr Pratchett and I don't think his recent works count. I seem to be reading utter rubbish or coursework at present. I did just do the last two Pratchetts over the christmas week though... i worry he will get too ill to write though..

I've read a surprising number of these, lolz!

@landogriffin is right: needs more PK Dick. Several of his novels and any short story collection would do nicely.

McCaffrey's "Dragonflight", Terry Pratchett, Ray Bradbury, A Clockwork Orange, Arthur C Clark, Doublas Adams, Larry Niven, Heinlein, Asimov. Orsaon Scott Card.

Many of the greats here.

The only two I'd add as Must Reads is 'The Legacy of Heorot' by Niven, Jerry Pournelle, and Steven Barnes, & the Honor Harrington Series by David Weber.

Each one of these that I have read are all really great, so I'm going to save this flow chart and consider it like a checklist. A lot of my lesser known favorites are on here, such as "Snow Crash" and "Perdido Street Station" in addition to the big names like Asimov, Atwood, Clarke, Heinlein, Verne, and Wells.

However, needs more Philip K. Dick. Just "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" is a huge short-changing of his catalog. Try "The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch" which, in my opinion, is PKD's best, even better than "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"

This took me to my all-time favourite, The Time Machine, HG Wells. The chart knows all.

The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is a great one.

Surprised to see the Xanth series mentioned on there. I read the holy bejeezus out of those books through middle-high school. They got progressively more hokey as time went on but they were still good reads.
