Hi all, just thought a discussion about sci fi authors was in order (why not). I shall start the ball rolling....
My favourite sci-fi author is Philip K Dick. His short stories are fantastic. Gripping, exciting, dark and they always have a good twist, which more often than not, you do not see coming. I would recommend his books/stories to any Sci-Fi fan. Not to mention the numerous movies based on his work:

Now the quality of those movies (in my opinion) does vary rather a lot but the stories are great!
Who is (or Are) your favourite Sci-Fi authors?
<EDIT>Here is an interesting link for any Sci Fi fans out there!
