So yesterday some guy at Facebook asked a question that made me think of my sci-fi books and that lead me to make an Influence Map with some of the sci-fi books that in some way influenced me.

I also wanted to keep fox-orion original directives so I followed his rule to fill the map.

Keep in mind that the ones presented are NOT all and are not presented in any special order:

The Star Beast by Robert A. Heinlein (1954) - This one is here not only to represent the work of Heinlein but also because it remains to this day among my top 3 books from this author, that I am a huge fan of.

The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge (1981) - I love this author. Her work is among my favourite, this one specially with its sequel The Summer Queen. If you never read any sci-fi before, try this books.

Titan by John Varley (1980) - One of my favourite authors, almost at the level of Heinlein in my book, although diferent styles and writing. And Titan is easily one of his top 3 books.

Dreamsnake by Vonda McIntyre (1979) - I HATE SNAKES! That's a fact, but reading this book almost made me want to have a pet snake... and that says it all.

Brightness Reef by David Brin (1996) - David Brin wrote some of the best books I have in my library. And I could easily choose other book to represent his work here but the Uplift Universe is his top work for me.

The Man in the Maze by Robert Silverberg (1968) - Silverberg is my second favourite sci-fi author and this book is among my top 3 from him.

Azazel by Isaac Azimov (1988) - Azimov is not in my top 3 sci-fi authors but I love his work none the less and Azazel is a funny set of short stories that I can read over and over again and always make me smile. But that might also be because of my dark sense of humor.

The Gameplayers of Zan by M. A. Foster (1977) - This book was only the second sci-fi book I ever read. I was 12 years old at the time and never forgot the how it made me feel.

Dinosaur Planet by  Anne McCaffrey (1978) - I'm a big fan of dinosaur stories... and if you mix some sci-fi along, I'm hooked. Not to mention that I never read a book from Anne McCaffrey I didn't liked.

A Deepness in the Sky by Vernor Vinge (1999)  - When I first read this book I almost gave up... Until I found A Fire Upon the Deep by the same author and gave it a chance. Worth it.

Lensman Series by E.E. "Doc" Smith (1934 - 1948) - The first sci-fi book I ever read was Lord Tedric. It was a gift from my godmother and that ignited my love for sci-fi.
To this days, I still think the Green Lantern Corp was based on the Lensman series by E.E. "Doc" Smith. Change my mind.

Marune: Alastor 933 by Jack Vance (1975) - Jack Vance wrote some great sci-fi stories that I read often but this one is still the one I like best.

Solaris by Stanisław Lem (1961) - When I first found the books from Stanislaw Lem, I thought it was more of the same sci-fi stories I was used to read from british and american authors. Big Mistake!

Wow! Great idea! A really intriguing selection too! I've read and liked most of these authors although I haven't read a lot of these particular selections. I may have to check them out! Excellent!
