Note to the mods: upon further reflection, it seems to me this thread belongs in the "Other Writers" forum rather than here. Would you please consider moving it? Thanks.

I'm really glad 'Archer's Goon' is on this list, it was my favourite book as a kid and I still re-read it now. I've been looking unsucessfully for the old BBC program based on it (on DVD)for a few years now...

I've read Viriconium, most of the New Sun books, and Jurgen. Viriconium's the only one that really made a significant impact on me. Jurgen was clever, and often imitated in Heinlein's later work, but it's just amusing, nothing more. Wolfe just seems dry, bloodless.

No Watership Down? No LotR?

Lord of Light: It's fantasy, or it's science fiction, or it's a retelling of the tales of the Hindu gods, as they encounter Mahasamatman, who may be Buddha and may just be a guy called Sam. It's a book I reread every few decades, and love.


I read Lord of Light a few months ago, seemed fairly straightforward sf, they talk about old Earth, and when they first came to their new world. Maybe I missed some ambiguous stinger somewhere.

I think I refuse to read the Wolfe books. The Ulysses of science fiction, no way man, no way.
