Recommended Books

Mark Hunt posted in the OSR Community asked about the 25 recommended fantasy authors listed in the Dungeon Master Guide of AD&D 1E. I wanted a list for Sci-Fi games. So I made one.

Adams, Douglas -- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Glaxy
Anderson, Poul -- Technic History series.
Asimov, Isaac
Blish, James
Bradley, Marion Zimmer -- Darkover series
Brin, David
Brunner, John
Orson, Scott Card -- Ender series.
Cherryh, C. J.
Clarke, Arthur C.
Dick, Philip K.
Dickson, Gordon R.
Harrison, Harry
Heinlein, Robert A.
Herbert, Frank
Laumer, Keith
Niven, Larry
Pohl ,Frederick
Pournelle, Jerry
Simak, Clifford
Smith, E.E. “Doc”
Stephenson, Neal
Verne, Jules
Van Vogt, A. E.
Wells, H.G.


  1. Hmm, I guess I might remove Simak and add him. I love Piper but have only read Space Viking.
