Asimov, Isaac  -  Over 200 books of science fiction and fact. Mr. Asimov has written some of the most informative and easy to read books about science fact that I have ever read. He makes learning science fun for all. His science fiction is great (to me, anyway) in that all circumstances are usually based on known scientific principles.

Crichton, Michael:
State of Fear - Just finished this thought-provoking novel a few days ago (today is Jan. 21, 2005). Once started, it was hard to put down.
Timeline - New and different time-travel story (PC game ∓ new movie). Crichton is a master of melding great stories with technology.
Jurassic Park & The Lost World - You saw the movies, but the books were better!
The Terminal Man
The Andromeda Strain
- The movie was good, too!
Eaters of the Dead - (the original book title of the movie The 13th Warrior)
Donaldson, Stephen R. - The Stephen R. Donaldson home page does not work anymore. I'll soon add links to other sites that prominently feature his work. 
Thomas Covenant The Unbeliever - What a guy! Putting this character up against Lord Foul! Thomas is pretty flawed - not the best judgment - in either world! Speaking of worlds, what do you think of "The Land"? This would make a decent movie series, too.
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever
Lord Foul's Bane

Feist, Raymond E.

The Krondor Series - I loved these books (so did my kids) ! ! (Magician was long when first written, so it was eventually broken into two books - you'd never know it. These would make the coolest movies if they were true to the books. I'd sit through each one if they were all four hours long (if there was an intermission so I could take a bathroom break and refill my hot, buttered popcorn). Hey - Mr. Spielberg or Lucas - see if Mr. Feist will let you make them!! The first "trilogy" is unbeatable. After seeing his work on "Lord of the Rings - Fellowship of the Ring", Peter Jackson would do well making films of these books too!
Magician (now published in paperback as Magician: Apprentice & Magician: Master)
A Darkness at Sethanon

Splinter of the Mind's Eye
Grimwood, Ken Not many have heard of Mr. Grimwood or Replay - The best book about living your life over and over and over and over, etc. It's probably mostly a love story, but once you start it, you can't put it down. Makes you wonder what you'd do if you had the chance to relive your life, but takes it further. Nice touches with real people we all know about involved (fictionally, of course) or at least acknowledged. Would or could you save J. F. K.? - Would you be rich and famous - or become a hermit? If you've never read it, I highly recommend it.
Heinlein, Robert Home Page
Herbert, Frank  DUNE series: what a fantastic set of books with an entire universe affected by what happens on one little, arid planet!
Hogan, James P.  Gentle Giants of Ganymede and more. What's REALLY out there? (Working on getting MUCH more Hogan info!)
Hubbard, L. Ron  The founder of the Church of Scientology wrote quite a bit of SciFi
Battlefield Earth - The movie didn't do it justice.
Mission Earth (Series) - L. Ron Hubbard - The longest "Space Opera" we know. 10 sort of wacky books. Lots of action! Would make a great series of movies!!
1. An Alien Affair
2. The Enemy Within
3. Black Genesis
4. The Invaders Plan
5. Fortune of Fear
6. Death Quest

White, T. H.  -  Author of The Once and Future King - Probably the best book I've ever read about the story of King Arthur. Has everything you've seen in movies - from Disney's "Sword in the Stone" to "Merlin" and "Excalibur"! At times really funny and always makes you feel like you were there.
