Well I would recommend Rudy Rucker's 'Frek and the Elixir'. Its a fun sci-fi novel that has aliens, UFOs, reality TV, biotechnology gone awry, stem cells, and a magic pig. Really it's a great novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Its a fairly fast read, think of it kind of in the vein of Lord of the Rings meets Month Python. Its very funny in parts but also has some action with just a smidge of romance. If you liked any Douglas Adams' novels I think you would enjoy this one.

Hmm well I read a book called Osiris Revelations which was pretty good. Doesn't have any direct contact with E.T but the plot is based on E.T tech/ finding lost knowledge on Mars and I found it great. Try it

I would recommend you read factual books about ufos as they are much more interesting...

But if your looking for fiction then you cant go wrong with Operation Thunder Child.

Its written by Nick Pope who used to work for the Ministry of Defense investigating UFOs. So it might just have a bit of truth to it...

Theres also a sequel called Operation Lightning Strike.

Peace

Agent to the Stars.

There are a couple of threads on this, but I don't think specifically dealing with UFO/Alien topics (but certainly Scifi). Check here. And here.
I just wrapped up three Ringworld books by Larry Niven. Decent reads. Along a similar vein is 'Helix' by Eric Brown (just wrapped that one up to).

I think I need to be a little more precise...
Anything along the lines of first contact, crash/retrieval, ancient astronauts...
Stephen Coonts put out a good book called Saucer, and the Area 51 series are 2 that are along the lines I like....

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

An early, and all-time favorite of mine is Stranger in a Strange Land.

Another one which still blows me away, is Star Maker. Considering it was written in the 1930's, its content is truly amazing. If you're a sci-fi fan with much experience with the genre, you'll see the seeds of countless other stories and novels contained in its pages. It deserves to be more widely known.

Ahhh, yeah I can't help so much in those topics. I did see a couple threads that were along the lines of Ancient Aliens and such. Perhaps another search here using "books" or "scifi" or something? Sorry I can't remember exactly what search term I used.

Harry Turtledove's WorldWar/Colonization series. It starts out at the beginning of WWII with a alien invasion of earth.

He has been refered to as the Master of alternate history.

I've enjoyed most of his stuff. Entertaining

I take it you've read the Honor Harrington series as well.

Cut me some slack, I'm trying.


Another series I read which I can't remember the name of the author or the series, just that it was a entertaining read.

It was a three part series about a human (Laid back music artist) who gets abducted by a alien federation off the coast of Belize to help them conduct war against a opposing confederation. He resists initially and then realizes that humans are uniquely suited for combat. It ends with the aliens belately realizing it as well.

Eifelheim...interesting premise about aliens who end up in Germany during the black death. Very thought provoking but it does start off a little slow.

It might be worth you taking a look at 'A Strange Encounter' by Steve Fellick. That's a novel about UFO's tracked on radar over the UK and the military interaction that follows.
