Sci Fi redux

So yeah, I just wrote like 19 replies to that sci-fi post of a few weeks ago. The list of sci fi to read as it currently stands:
  • Halting State, Charles Stross, if only because I was already reading it when this started
  • The Skylark in Space, E. E. "Doc" Smith.
  • Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. LeGuin
  • The Space Merchants, Frederick Pohl
  • Neuromancer, William Gibson
  • Ubik, Philip K. Dick
  • Cat's Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
  • A Canticle for Leibowitz, Walter Miller
  • The Cyberiad, Stanislaw Lem
  • The Exiles Trilogy, Ben Bova
  • The Shockwave Rider, John Brunner
  • Rendezvous with Rama, Arthur Clarke
  • Cyteen, C. J. Cherryh
  • Doomsday Book, Connie Willis
  • The Diamond Age, Neal Stephenson
  • Deathbird Stories, Harlan Ellison
  • Dragon's Egg, Robert L. Forward
  • Tales of the Dying Earth, Jack Vance
Need to research Doris Lessing or Andre Norton.

Science Noir
I've become very fond of Richard K. Morgan's work in the past year or so, and it very much has the feel of mixing science fiction with other genres. In particular, the Takeshi Kovacs books seem like Science-Noir-Detective and Science-Pulp-Adventure to me. Neither are `classics', but I'd recommend all of his currently-out books (even Market Forces, which is basically a screenplay he novelized himself).
