    To kick off discussion, I just put in my votes. My top five were “Oath of Fealty” by Niven and Pournelle, “We” by Zamyatin, “Protector” by Niven, “Ubik” by Dick, and “The Futurological Congress” by Lem.

    Top 10 SF Books
    Being a reader of S.F. for over 40 years, I added a few books that not only had impact on me, but that I keep returning to again and again. This does not mean that I voted for them, but that I felt they should be on the list.

    H. Beam Piper was a writer who has been sadly overlooked but publised works of view and depth. Harry Harrison was also missing. So was Roger Zelazny. I am sure that this list will expand with time.

    OOps, now I have to go back and add Nova by Chip Delaney.

      Harry Harrison is the reason I started studying Esperanto. One of these days I have to pick up the Esperanto versions of some of the Stainless Steel Rat novels.

        I added 2 Harrison books to the list. Bill The Galatic Hero and MAKE ROOM, MAKE ROOM. The “Rat” is fun, but the 2 I added are better social commentary.

    Great idea
    And a great way of doing it.

    I was really impressed by the amount of Philip K Dick & John Brunner books that had made in on to the list.

    It is nice to know that they still have a following.

      I added and voted for my favorite John Brunner book, “The Sheep Look Up.” I have a penchant for apocalyptic sci-fi, so I added and voted for a few other of my favorites, like “When Worlds Collide” and “The End of The Dream” by Phillip Wylie and “The Man Who Melted” by Jack Dann. I was also pleased to see “Dust” and “The Killing Star” by Charles Pellegrino up on the list and I voted for them. I voted for the Pellegrino books high on my list not just for the writing, but also for the ideas, I don’t think anybody can ever look at insects the same after reading “Dust” or at the subject of First Contact the same after reading “The Killing Star” or even “Flying to Valhalla” (which I also voted for).
