BestSFBooks recently got in touch to congratulate me on inclusion in their sacred halls. What an honor and a thrill! Going through their alphabetized author pages is like scanning a who’s who of the genre’s finest. I sincerely believe that I don’t belong there and that the universe will soon correct for this, but I took a screen shot so at least the memory will last. And check it, they already have I, ZOMBIE on my page. The other fine works of literature must be horrified.
One of the things BestSF likes to do is have authors submit their favorite sci-fi works with a few words on why they were chosen. I jumped at the chance. And yeah, there are quite a few classics on here, boring choices I’m sure, but there’s a reason some of these show up on list after list. They are the works that drew many of us into the genre and caused us to dream of contributing one day. If there are any on my list you haven’t read, I urge you to check them out when you get some time. They are each the sort of book that I’ve read often and look forward to reading again.
