Just ignore dem foos. Yes, Spider Robinson = good guy. Christopher
Moore in the same funny, sci-fi vein. Robert Asprin attempts their
class but falls short. Oops, fell short until 2008. RIP, Robert.
The most decisive actions of our life - I mean those that are most
likely to decide the whole course of our future - are, more often
than not, unconsidered.

I've read all you mentioned and more. I'll read anything Sci-Fi and,
if I don't like the story, I might not read more of the author but it
will depend on each individual story/plot.
I've read Douglas Adams (decades ago), Poul Anderson, Kevin Anderson,
Piers Anthony, Ray Bradbury, Ben Bova, CJ Cherryh, Arhtur C Clarke,
Gordon R Dickson, David Drake, Philip Jose Farmer, Eric Flint, Alan
Dean Foster, Peter F Hamilton, Frank Herbert, Tobias Buckell, Keith
Laumer, Elizabeth Moon ... ack, too many to name!
Tons of good sci-fi out there if you are willing to dig around. One of
my favorite newer writers is Tobias S Buckell who puts an interesting
twist into space fiction. Met him and he's a nice guy too.
I've got hundreds of SciFi books around here and read and occasionally
reread them all, but I haven't yet read one mobi book on my cell phone
or on the tablet that I sold a few months back. It's just not the
same. Not the same life to the stories or even the same feel reading
text on a moible device.
I've gathered a number of those online books for a friend that reads
them including some audio books of E.E.Doc Smith's Children of the
Lens series. Listened to one for about half an hour and fell asleep.
Just a big yawn to me.
"But there's one thing Sir Patrick Stewart [AKA Captain Jean-Luc Picard]
could not do - deal with the local cable company. The British actor spent a
harrowing 36 hours waiting for cable empire Time Warner to come to his
$2million home in Brooklyn, only to tweet that the experience made him lose
'the will to live.' "
