Friday Blog Hops - Feb. 18

Today's question from Parajunkee's Follow Friday:

If you are a fan of Science Fiction what is your favorite book?

Book?  Whine.... you mean I have to name ONE?  I'll name the whole series:  Isaac Asimov's robot books and short stories.  The robots had to follow three laws; how they got around these laws add to the plots.  Sadly, the movie I, Robot disappointed me. For those of you who don't know the three laws of robotics, a summary:

  1. No injury of humans, either through action or inaction.
  2. Obey humans, unless it conflicts with the First Law.
  3. Protect self unless it conflicts with the First or Second Law.
Asimov also wrote great mysteries, especially the Black Widowers Club short stories.   He also put himself in as an irritating narcisstic character in Murder at the ABA.  This book and the robot ones are downstairs.  I think I'll go choose one for bedtime reading tonight.
What's your favorite science fiction book/series/author?

Hi from a new follower!

I have read very few SciFi books. I think the last one I read was "A Wrinkle in Time." Does that even count?

Hi! I share your Asimov love, and your disdain for the I, Robot movie. I'm just hoping for a Caves of Steel movie someday. Thanks for coming over for Follow Friday, and now I'm following you back!

Yours is the most thorough answer I've seen so far! This was a hard question for me.

Hopping through. I've never been a sci fi fan, but I'd like to read Asimov some day. He's a classic writer.

I love Asimov. He has really quirky short stories as well. I didn't participate this week, but if I did, Asimov, Dick and Butler would be my favorite SciFi!
