- On the way to the Dark Tower.
I haven't read Canticle, Chronicles, and Foundation since I was a kid. I expect I missed a lot of subtleties. Heinlein's always been a favorite, especially The Moon is a Harsh Mistress and Time Enough for Love. The later titles in the "Future History" series are good, but there's a lot in them that made me uncomfortable. I got through them just to be able to say I did.I'm not a huge reader of Sci-Fi, but works of Sci-Fi are definitely among my very favorite works of fiction.
My all-time favorite is A Canticle for Leibowitz. Other favorites are The Martian Chronicles, Brave New World, Ender's Game, Frankenstein, Stranger in a Strange Land, Watchers, Starship Troopers, The Foundation Trilogy.
The Larry Niven/Jerry Pournelle collabs are great. Lucifer's Hammer, Oath of Fealty, The Mote in God's Eye & The Gripping Hand. Arthur C. Clarke's 2001 series and The Fountains of Paradise. Anne McCaffery's Dragonriders of Pern series and The Ship Who Sang and the other Shellperson titles.
