I'm a huge SF & F genre book fan.

I love almost all the masters in the SF field and I especially love collecting their short story collections. Can't say that I have one favorite above all. But if you twist my arm, I would probably say that it is a toss up between Larry Niven and Fritz Leiber. But I love reading all of them like Robert Silverberg, James Tiptree Jr, Cordwainer Smith, Harlan Ellison, Arthur Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula K LeGuin, Jane Yolen, David Drake, Jerry Pournelle, etc. etc. etc. Just too numerous to list down.

For the Fantasy, I enjoy the Sword and Sorcery genre. Favorite author is a toss-up between Ed Greenwood and Piers Anthony. I especially love the Forgotten Realms series since I used to role-play in my younger days. I grew up on AD&D.
