Science Fiction, The Best Stories Page

We all have our favorite stories, and have read them several times. In my case the following book is a classic: Foundation Trilogy by Asimov. I have several other books that would also make my list of all-time greats. I want to start a listing of great stories, and would like your help in doing so. Thusly, (is that a word?) I have decided to put this page together. It will be a top ten list, that may well grow.

I will place a few of my favorites in my Top Ten listing, and as others who visit my site send in their selections, the Visitors Top Ten list will grow. Hopefully, at least some of my favorites will make that list.

Hey, send me your list of favorites!

I have set up a science fiction circle that will discuss new and established authors. We will also discuss our favorite books and exchange reviews. If you would like to be a part of this circle please email ME.
