Fantasy (unless magic counts as sci-fi?): At the moment in book 7 (of ~20) of Terry Goodkind.

 

Worlds_of_The_Golden_Queen got me reading again, a few years ago. Guess that is Sci-fi. Very good.

Well, it all depends on YOUR point of view.

 

A. C. Clark, R. Asimov, R.A.H, Orsen Scott Card, et. al.  

 


 

I have a love-hate relationship with Orson Scott Card.  I loved the first 4 books of the Ender series... but I thought all of the Bean books were complete garbage.

 

Also, if any of you have children, I absolutely loved these books growing up.  They are the books that got me into sci-fi / fantasy in the first place.

With all that time on your hands you could spend it reading the context help for graph properties

If Tetris has taught me anything, it's errors pile up and accomplishments disappear.

The best I've read in a long time.  Its got a few sequels as well that I haven't read yet, but I'm saving those for a time when I have a good long vacation.

I almost finished the book. I like it! But you need a strong stomach, it is a kind of "bio-scifi" Smiley Happy Like a book version of a H. R. Giger art...
