If I were picking any from Author C Clarke, Rendezvous with Rama would have to be at the top of my list. 2001 was good but I wouldn't class it as "must read"

Near the top of my list would be "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card. Other favorites: "Ringworld" by Larry Niven; "Startide Rising" by David Brin; "Hyperion", "Endymion", and "Ilium" by Dan Simmons.

I do like a lot of Arthur C Clarke -- it's just that none screamed out at me as being on the "must read" list...

You mentioned Arthur C Clarke, Max, but none of his books....the 2001 series (2001, then 2010: Odyssey Two, 2061: Odyssey Three and 3001: The Final Odyssey) would have to be included in any list of mine. I appreciate that 2001 is also a film - actually the book and the film were made concurrently - but it stands on its own as a good read.

I would like to reiterate that my suggestions in this column were absolutely off the “top of my head” – and I reserve the right to add more as they pop into my mind…
