I asked this question on LoP. Some of the responses were good. Some not.

So, I'm asking it here too.

Let me have it!

"The User Illusion" by Tor Nørretranders was a bloody good one, imho.





Among many, many, many, many, many others.

You should start with all the authors considered classics Milton, Doshtoyevski, Hemingway, Twain, Cicero, etc.

From there it is personal choice.

I like SF. You first have to get all of Heinlein.

Roger Zelazny's "The Lord of Light" is a must.

All the classics is a heckuva good suggestion.
If I had only one book, it would be 'A Soldier of the Great War' by Mark Helprin.

Book choices, of course, rest on personal interests and whims.

I agree with adding the classic literature, I particularly enjoyed 'A Town Called Alice' by Nevil Shute and most of Jane Auten's works. I would add murder mysteries to that, in particular, Arthur Conon Doyle's Sherlock Holmes collection and Agatha Christie's works.

Alas Babylon.

Then go to Hesperian.org and download all the classics for free.
Amazon has a load of free e-books too.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Anything by A.A.Attanasio espacially Radix.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
