Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud

John DeNardo of SFSignal posted this meme, and I liked it so I'm repeating it here

The first science fiction, fantasy or horror book I ever read was:

The first one? Ever? Gah! Too many years and too many books have passed since then. No clue.

 

The last science fiction, fantasy or horror book I read that I'd put in my "Top 20″ list is:

The Martian, Andy Weir...just a rockin' good time all the way around, from the idea to the execution to the worldview it took to write it.


The last science fiction, fantasy or horror book I couldn't finish was:

The Player of Games, Iain M. Banks...not into it, not into the Culture I'm afraid, and I feel completely de-geeked by this admission.


A science fiction, fantasy or horror author whose work I cannot get enough of is:

Lois McMaster Bujold

 

A science fiction, fantasy or horror author I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't read yet is:

Tanya Huff...have some of her stuff coming!

 

A science fiction, fantasy or horror book I would recommend to someone who hasn't read sf/f/h is:

Rocket Science, Jay Lake...his first published novel, funny and fun and also quite exciting.

 

A science fiction, fantasy or horror book that's terribly underrated is:

Windeye, Brian Evenson...*shiver*

 

A science fiction, fantasy or horror book that's terribly overrated is:

Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card...even before he showed his behind, I didn't like this book.
