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.

D3CKARD...........Hindi mo na talaga mababasa bago kay Ludlum kasi patay na sya! Last year lang! No more new books! Kaya collecor's items na books nya!

 

one thing i hate w/ the books of Tom Clacy....the first few chapters are so dragging! Look for the Ton Clancy "SNN" its about war in Spratly Islands! about Sidney: i only like "Dooms day Conspiracy" and "If Tomorrow Comes"... Robin Cook is nice if you are into medicine.......Patricia Cromwell......for suppense and forensic science....

enigma... i know he's dead :D i think the last book i read of his was bourne supremacy pa. kasi once i discovered tom clancy i never went back to ludlum - kasi i find clancy's scenarios more realistic and more technical. plus, the depth of clancy's research for his books makes you wonder if he's a former intelligence spook himself. :)

Kasama pala ako dito sa mga SF and F genre fan club. If you guys want to try another good fantasy author, try reading The Recluce Saga by L.E. Modesitt Jr., If anybody already read it, i'm just curious about your comments about it. :)

 

btw i just finished reading Robert Jordan's 10th book in the wheel of time series, Crossroads of Twilight and I felt kinda disappointed.
