Science Fiction Recommendations

The HereAndOk staff recommends these science fiction books. Hope you enjoy them.

Best Science Fiction Books Ever

These are the three best science fiction books ever, in no particular order:

The fourth best science fiction book is Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card.

Military Science Fiction

David Weber is the best active military science fiction author, and he is probably the best ever. He writes convincingly of space battles. His characters are interesting. He puts a lot of effort into his science fiction details. His Honor Harrington and Starfire series are terrific places to start.

Jerry Pournelle has a few good ones. Try Prince of Sparta and Go Tell the Spartans, from his Falkenberg's Legion series. Or read the Janissaries series, co-authored by Roland Green.

Science Fiction for Kids

Here are some science fiction books that kids will enjoy. These recommendations are not dull. They are not G-rated. But they are suitable for kids. As a bonus, adults will appreciate them, too. In no particular order, try any of these books:

Alternate History

Alternate history, where the story imagines what would be different if some aspect of history had turned out differently, is an old theme in science fiction. Try these books:

Read It and Weep

These science fiction books will make you cry:

The Classics

  • Set unimaginably far off in the future, Against the Fall of Night by Arthur C Clarke is one of the first science fiction books to credibly explore the far-off future.
  • The Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov made galactic empires work. It introduced generations of children to science fiction. Aim for the original three books (which is why the series was considered a trilogy). The later add-ons are not as good and certainly not classics.


The RE Author Science Fiction page has a good list of science-fiction related sites.
