Hello,

I’m looking for some recommendations. When I was younger I liked Heinlein and A.E. Van Vogt. I wasn’t much of a Bradbury fan and found reading Arthur C. Clarke to be tedious. I liked Asimov ok and liked the first few Dune books. I haven’t read a lot of modern science fiction, but my daughter gave me some Orson Scott Card books for my birthday a couple of years ago, and I found them interesting in spots, but by the end I was pushing myself to finish. With that as background, can you suggest some authors and titles? I went by Barnes & Noble today and looked at a few, but everything I picked up seemed formulaic, so I left without making a purchase.

Please help

I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.

I have only read the first book, but I recommend “The Damned” trilogy by Alan Dean Foster.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Damned_Trilogy.  I would love to see a short series based on this book.  I really should see about downloading the other 2 books.

Any book By Robert Heinlen is great. My personal favorite is “Time Enough for Love”. Its the story about a guy who is immortal named Lazarus Long. Great book and I highly recommend it.
