I’ve recently started reading speculative fiction again after a long drought – the last time I was reading SF regularly was in the late 90s when I was in high school.
I liked then: David Brin, Ben Bova, the Foundation series and Heinlein’s “Moon is a Harsh Mistress”, and some of John Barnes. I think I liked something by Dan Simmons but I can’t remember what and anyway, I hear he’s gone a bit nuts. I liked Ursula Le Guin but what I read of hers wasn’t really SF.
I didn’t like: Kim Stanley Robinson, Stranger in a Strange Land, Poul Anderson.
I have mixed feelings on PK Dick, who I’ve only read since I got out of my SF phase.
Based on this profile, any suggestions for new SF that I might enjoy, especially any written by women? Should I try Stranger again?
