I agree with John Varley -- although "Golden Globe" was not his best in my humble opinion. I thought his "Steel Beach" was one of the best Sci-Fi reads ever...

Nobody cited John Varley. He is one of my all time favorite. Read 'Golden Globe', you will understand why :-) (I like many of the other ones named here anyway). Best regards,

Does screen writer count? My favorite story author is Joe Straczinsky (Babylon 5). Also would like to see Vernor Vinge +/- Orson Scott Card. As well as Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, David Brin, Timothy Zahn, or James Hogan. Also Harry Turtledove whose famous for alternate histories.

I find it sad that a list of most popular Sci-Fi writers does not include someone from India. My favorite writer is "Desi Babu" from India, who has written some amazing Sci-Fi stories. Check out this one, called "The Useless Dust" to read an India flavored Sci Fi story: http://peanutexpress.blogspot.in/2012/01/useless-dust-part-i.html

No Worries -- out of all his work, this is the one that really sticks out in my mind -- I'd love to hear what you think about it after you've read it

I think his best ever was "Carrion Comfort" -- you'll be thinking about this one for a long time after you've read it...

I forgot to mention his latest novels, "Ilium" and "Olympos", which have mind-boggling scope. And he writes with such a poetic flair.

My current favorite hard sci-fi author is Dan Simmons. His Hyperion and Endymion novels are fantastic, best I have ever read. He also wrote a "horror" book, "Children of the Night", which adds a modern spin on the Vlad the Impaler/vampire legend.
