I love those 90s Douglas Adams covers! ^___^ Great list of favorites! I need to read quite a few of these 🙂

Your video is an important one on YouTube for a couple of reasons. 1) There just aren’t a lot of people discussing intellectual themes, styles and personal effects from science fiction on YouTube. It’s mostly plot discussions. The classic “This book is about…” 2) YouTube is deluged by people who don’t understand what science fiction is, as a genre and 3) YouTube is deluged by young readers who refuse to read the old literature and treat YA Sci Fi as if it is the only Science Fiction worth reading. People can like what they like. I just don’t think it is fair for someone who hasn’t read a wide variety of science fiction to claim that they know the best. Best FOR THEM. That’s fine. You’re clearly well read and I appreciate you sharing your insights.

I love Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam Trilogy, which is speculative fiction and is so much fun. It’s not quite as beautiful as The Handmaid’s Tale, but I highly recommend it!

Kalanadi says:

I missed out on so much sci fi as a kid, I should have had your list! 🙂 If you want to try Adams in English, maybe try the Dirk Gently books. Similar style, funny, more mysteries than whackadoodle sci fi, but very, very Adams!

Douglas Adams was one of my first SF as well, I don’t think I’ve ever read them in German, I have read my battered copies over and over, so don’t think I did. I also really liked the old movie. Other than that I think I read most of my SF recently, just always watched it more on TV or the cinema, reading just never occured to me. Sadly.

TheSkepticalReader says:

Douglas Adams❤️ I haven’t read so many books you mentioned but want to! The three classic dystopians I have definitely read and enjoyed even tho dystopians aren’t my thing. I agree about Jean le Flambeur and Imperial Radch series. I love them but they take a lot of time. 🙂

booksandpieces says:

I also read a lot fo Cyberpunk and earth-based science ficiton when I was a teenager. How funny. I guess cymberpunk makes sense growing up in the time when the web emerged and grew. Quantum Thief – you know I completely agree with you on this book. It’s so damn good.
