My personal library of books makes my games collection look paltry by comparison. As much as I love playing games, to me reading a book is even better. What I read is fairly diversified. Within the realm of fiction, my favorite genre is science fiction-- particularly Golden Age science fiction. Here I am listing (with nominal games as headings) authors of classic works of the genre with my comments.

My collection concentrates on Golden Age SF and so I don't know later stuff as well as I would like, something referred to with those authors below who are later than the Golden Age. Some exceptions like Frank Herbert exist.

I am allowing public additions, but I reserve the right to edit the items. Please list all non-English items in the original with the language identified as well as an English title if one exists.

Unfortunately I do not know non-English SF as well as I would like, especially Russian SF. For German SF, I'm aware of the Perry Rhodan series but little else although I know it does exist. French SF I also only know a few authors from. Please add the classic non-English authors to this list but please only the classic ones.

NB: No, L. Ron Hubbard is not classic SF. His work could make him the poster-child for bad pulp writing and lack of either research or common sense
