I devoured all the Dr Dolittle books I could find at the local library, hmm, might add a link to Google Street! Science Fiction for kids - never occurred to me then or since that there was anything politically incorrect about them. But censorship comes in many ugly forms.

Those About to Die - Daniel P Mannix
Actually my brother's book. An interesting counterpoint to Latin class! Not exactly a primer to guide you through post puberty!

The Mind Parasites - Colin Wilson
I could never read his seminal Outsider - but that's the recurring theme. Does anyone predate his Great Old Ones concept?

Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein
Ah Heinlein, the Woody Allen of SF. Can read his stream of consciousness self-indulgent tracts but there are some good stories in there.

Sirius (S.F. Masterworks) - Olaf Stapledon
Wanted to be a vet once, then I realised I loved animals too much. Go figure. My dog talks to me and is pretty smart but not like Sirius.

Dorsai (Childe Cycle) - Gordon R. Dickson
A great Canadian author! Unknown it would seem in his birth town of Edmonton. A great story teller though.

Stand On Zanzibar - John Brunner
Do you know where the title comes from - interesting. But the best line is from the sheep look up - "Think of it as evolution in action"...

British post apocolypse classic. Wonder if Brin's the Postman is related.

Triplanetary (Lensman Sagas) - E. E. "Doc" Smith
Pre WWII Science Fiction - the sexism is cloying but probably reflective of the times. What's amazing is Smith's prescience of the war on drugs - an American obsession. But what's really incredible is that just when you think the superlatives can't get any super, he ups the ante! And he has a scientifically plausible FTL drive.
