Blog Hopping on a Friday

I haven't been very good at taking part in the Friday hops. Friday is a really busy day for me. But today's question did make me want to participate.

If you are a fan of Science Fiction what is your favorite book? If you haven't read Science Fiction before...any inkling to? Anything catch your eye?
I grew up on science fiction. I loved Robert A. Heinlein and Isaac Asimov. I couldn't miss a book by Gordon Dickson. Now, though my reading range has expanded, I still enjoy a lot of character driven science fiction.

My current favorite authors are Lois McMaster Bujold (especially when she writes about Miles Vorkosigan) and Sharon Lee and Steve Miller (who write the Liaden books). 

My favorite book by Bujold is Shards of Honor (now most easily found in the omnibus version called Cordelia's Honor) and my favorite book by Lee and Miller is Mouse and Dragon. But I really don't think you can go wrong reading any of their books.

I'm feeling the need for a re-read. How about you?


  1. Hi,

    Stopping by for the follow Friday.
    I am a new follower.

    Have a nice weekend!


  2. "Inside of a Dog" - I LOVE it. :) I haven't read any books by your current scifi authors. I am off to look those up. Thanks! And Happy Friday!

  3. Thanks for the comment (:

    I haven't read any of the books / authors you mentioned, but since you said you liked character-driven Science Fiction, I might look into those - I usually prefer character-driven novels.

  4. Thank-you for visiting my blog! I'll have to check out these authors so I can expand my SciFi reading ^_^.

  5. I'm not really a SF reader. I mostly stick to UF.

    Although when I was younger I did read the Roswell tie-in series. If you want to count that! ;)

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  6. Hey, thanks for visiting. I can't wait till I'm older since it's apparent that there are so many great adult books to read. I'll be on the lookout for the authors you mentioned though! :)

  7. I've never really gotten into reading SF, not sure why but I will check out some of the above titles you mentioned who knows I might discover a new love.

  8. Hopping through. I definitely want to read the Bujold books some day.
