Ask Slashdot: Good, Forgotten Fantasy & Science Fiction Novels?

Artaxs Re:Then you're gonna love this... (1244 comments)

I love Amber, but as far as "forgotten" Fantasy goes, I'd recommend Dilvish and the sequel, The Changing Land.
The Changeling and Madwand duo of novels is also good, but I haven't read them in a decade. As soon as I finish Stephenson's REAMDE and Richard K. Morgan's latest, I think it is time to visit the local used book store!

Books I bought to read, but haven't yet:

Artaxs Re:Bought or just acquired? (298 comments)

My Father once told me, "Son, if you do not have enough time to read, then you do not have enough time."

As a bit of an insomniac myself, I find I have plenty of time to read each night. My fiancee and I frequent the local used book stores and I find you can get a whole fistful of classic Sci-Fi paperbacks quite cheaply as many are sold at their 70's-era cover price. (And they inflation only helps the banks! ;)

Air Force Looks To Laser-Proof Its Weapons

Artaxs Re:Dragged along for the ride (347 comments)

The cynic in me can't help but agree with you, but this is the first "evidence" I've seen that such a thing can even work consistently. Given, these are all "staged" successes, but I have to admit that I am now a little more convinced that someday the USA could shoot down a few of those Chinese / Russian / Pakistani(?) nukes in an incoming ICBM attack.

Also, WarGames was being shown on the big screen for it's 25th anniversary here recently, which reminded me that "close" only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and global thermonuclear war.
