2018-08-02 Science Fiction

@alex asked about recommendations for Science Fiction books. I’d say: start with some classics? Maybe Frank Herbert’s Dune is a good place to start. I’d also read a William Gibson, e.g. Neuromancer; an Ian M. Banks like The Use of Weapons; an Charles Stross like Singularity Sky; an Octavia E. Buttler like Lilith’s Brood; a M. John Harrison like Nova Swing; a David Brin like Startide Rising; a Bruce Sterling like Schismatrix. But I’m stuck somewhere in the eighties with my SciFi, I fear...

I guess one should also read an Isaac Asimov, a Robert Heinlein? So many white men... Somebody link me to some good Science Fiction books from the last years?

I think the only one I read which is recent is Tobias Klausmann’s Slingshot.



Ich mag „The Martian Chronicle“ sehr, etwa 1950 geschrieben.

Ja, The Forever War war wirklich gut weil die Zeitverzerrung so richtig zur Geltung kam.
