I had to print that out.

You didn't mark The City and The City by Mieville? That one was fantastic!

I don't know about American Gods --it was too bizarre for me. I liked the basic concept, but it lost me--somewhere around the House on the Rock.

Connie Willis Blackout and All Clear aren't included? So, she get's my vote for To Say Nothing of the Dog.

So many books, so little time . . .

heh, hard to choose isn't it?

I was pleasantly surprised that my all time favorite novel in this area was on it - Zelazny's "Lord of Light". Not too well know but an amazing piece of fantasy and SF and even philosophy mixed in one book I reread regularly.

Please take back the part where you say "read everything on this list."

Goodkind? Bleh.

I don't believe that I didn't see Neuromancer until after I voted!

I haven't read a whole lot of these but I kind of wish John Bellairs's "Face in the Frost" was on the list. But I suppose that one's a little short and obscure. It's a cool little book that mixes a bit of horror and light fantasy.

I'm not so sure about the Gaiman stuff. The Sandman has some great moments but it's kinda uneven. I really liked the early issues drawn by Mike Dringenberg.

The Hyperion Cantos, by Dan Simmons

Should be No. #1, it is the most engaging, most original, and most complete world(s) made up in a SciFi series since "Dune." Seriously read the books, it will be well worth your time.

Playing With AI-Generated “Art”I haven't really explored NightCafe's free online AI Art Generator (creator.nightcafe.studio) tool yet. I have only done some preliminary tinkering around with it but, I have to say, I'm more impressed with the results than I anticipated considering how little ...

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
