Three series fro Piers Anthony:
1. The Blue Adept
2. Incarnations Of Immortality
3. Bio Of A Space Tyrant
Loved the game in Blue Adept and would love to see that in today's cgi world. Movies, miniseries, whatever. Incarnations starts off with a guy
killing Death and having to take over his job. Death, Time, War, Nature, Fate, God and Satan are the seven jobs that people hold, it's a wild
Mysteries Of The Unexplained - A TImeLife book from years ago that opened my eyes to a lot of weird stuff in this world.
Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. Just rips everything in our lives, basically, and is so darn funny that it will make you look foolish in public
when reading. He and Vonnegut are great at showing how ridiculous our world is.
Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game. So true nowadays. Read a couple others in the series but nothing came close to that first one IMO.
Not just the Dark Tower series, but all the other books and shorts that go along with it. It's really quite extensive.
Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress. My favorite of his. Also ties in with some other novels of his which I forget the names. The Cat Who Walk's
Through Walls I believe is one.
Some mentioned earlier: The Little Prince. Hated it immensely. Maybe I was too young but maybe the worst thing I've ever read except for The Lord Of
The Rings. As boring a fantasy series as there ever could be. They walk for three books then throw a ring into a fire. Could have been done much
better as one book. I never even finished it and I've read lots of fantasy but that was so boring I just put it down one day thirty years ago and
never picked it back up.
Surprised no one has mentioned Brave New World from Aldous Huxley.
