Comments: Science Fiction and Fantasy books


I like to read science fiction and fantasy a lot. Especially the "first contact" science fiction stories. In my opinion good fantasy is a hard to find since many writers base their stories on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien too much.

Read the rest of Science Fiction and Fantasy books.

Shannara series of Terry Brooks was the first fantasy book that I read, and it impressed me more than all the others I read later.

If you like first contact SF books i can recommend "the forge of god" by Greg Bear, although it's not a very positive first contact :P. It used to be my favourite book (and Bear my favourite writer, now replaced by John Meaney)
