The World Inside - Robert Silverberg. Always thought this would make a good movie.

Philip K Dick - Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

It's many years since I saw Bladerunner, which is supposed to be based on it, but there's a lot in the book which I don't think was n the film.

The Many-Coloured Land -Bk. 4 (The Adversary) by Julian May

Strange combination of sci-fi w/ elements of fantasy that my husband got me into...I'd never heard of the series before until he'd introduced me to them.  I'm enjoying them, but they occasionally take a little more concentration than I'm used to, seeing as how I don't usually read the hard core sci-fi into which this series delves.

Definitely try "Out of the Silent Planet" by C.S. Lewis. It's a terrific novel, almost a classic! It's a good read and, I mean, did you read who the author was?

I really like "Out of the Silent Planet" and think it can be considered a sci-fi classic.

Brian Aldiss's history of science fiction, "Trillion Year Spree" rates it as a classic, though he didn't think so much of the sequels. They are OK actually, but very different. Perelandra (Voyage to Venus) was written at the same time as Lewis was writing an academic work on Milton's Paradise Lost, and it shows. That Hideous Strength is the weakest of the three, but better if you read the whole version; the abridged version doesn't hang together and misses the humour, which it needs.
