Piers Anthony HOwever, among the dead, my vote would be the original sci-fi author, Johannes Kepler

"Later I found out he had started with the third volume..." LOL I'm trying to remember this series -- the name sounds familiar, but nothing is springing to mind...

Peter Hamilton. I've been reading scifi for 52 years and have read all of the greats and agree with most of the comments so far. But I was surprised to see no one has mentioned the best grand saga ever, "The Reality Dysfunction". This 5 or 6 (?) Volume series SO deserves a movie series like Star Wars or The Lord of the Ring to do it justice. You MUST read - just be sure to read them in order. My brother and I have been exchanging favorite books for years, but he gave me the series back explaining that he "just couldn't get into it". Later I found out he had started with the third volume...

Chalker would also require a time machine. Card is the only living one in the bunch. Chalker was great. Well of Souls series and Four Lords of the Diamond would be great movie material...maybe somebody Hollywood-ish will "discover" his work someday. Card would be an excellent choice for presenting...but I still stand by Greg Bear.

Not always... He's written some boring crocks, IMHO. I must say that his /Glory Season/ is absolutely brilliant; utterly superb.

Greg Bear (and Greg Egan) are without any doubt superb. Top-notch, yet mostly under-appreciated.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
