As a newbie I only have 12 books, but here are some of them:

- "Octagon": set in the 1970s when Play By Mail (PBM) games were popular. As the characters are killed off in a PBM sci-fi game, so are the actual players! Who is doing the killing?

- "The Edge of Tomorrow" by Isaac Asimov. A collection of short stories and essays by the master.

- "Fever" by Robin Cook. I always like his medical thriller books.

- "Legacy" (Star Trek book 56): on the cover with Captain Kirk and the old Captain Pike! An old enemy of Captain Pike returns to face Spock.

- "From a Buick 8" by Stephen King. King collectors will want to try this one out.

- "The Creatures of Man". A relatively new one I got in early 2006. Warfare has evolved to hinge upon who can make the best weapons, a sort of "economic warfare". Humans are divided into 2 sides, current technology creates a stalemate in almost every battle, until one side finds a creature that can communicate telepathically. This means instant communication across millions of miles across space. Is this enough of an edge to win the war and bring peace?
