Dunno if people are meant to this list but if so, here's a couple of mine.

Factual
Philosophy: The Basics by Nigel Warburton - Takes the most well known philosphical subjects and explains them very well. Ideal if you have never read anything on the subject before.

Classics
Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell - Most people have probably read this but it's worth mentioning anyway. One of my all time favourites and pretty chilling at times.

Iain M Banks and Iain Banks are the same person. He alternates pen names. This is worth remembering.

M Banks is for sci-fi
Banks is for contemporary fiction

I thought the Algebraist was shite. Player of Games is where it's at. Wasp Factory and Use of Weapons are great as well.

Piers Anthony "Incarnations of Immortality" series was one of my favourites from my younger days. His Xanth books were great too, though a little punny for some.

Additions-

Factual:
Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid - Douglas Hofstadter - Covering Creativity, the nature of play, and the theoretical prospects for AI, excellent book.
The Golden Bough - J.G. Frazer - For those who liked the page turner of "DaVinci's Code" and were intrigued by the concept of Iconography, this is the base txt for religious symbologya dn cultural anthropology, covering how and why themes remain similar across locations, myth, religion abd mysticism. Originally published 2 centuries ago.
The Machine That Changed the World- James P. Womack, Daniel T. Jones, Daniel Roos - Oh god I'm bring, wrok books, but, but, but....


Also please add me to the chorus for:
Fantasy - Sword of truth adn magician
Sci-fi - Peter Hamilton ftw.
Ian M Banks - again, I think the Culture books such as Excession are his best work

What i love about Bernard Cornwell's style is that he tries to base as much of it on historical fact as possible. Obviously the stories are absolutely fictional. But the he tries to involve as much reality as he can... such as the wya people lived back then!

Kaz, with modern day hindsight... do you think there was any actual magic in the Warlord Chronicles... ? I dont think so, think it was all just coincidence! but you never know :wink:

Someone recommended Harry Turtledove to me for pretty much the same reasons, it's like alternative History, he'll take a certain situation, say WW2, and throw in something extra, like an alien invasion, and just see how it'd all play out.

I haven't read any of his books yet though so I dunno if they're any good. Sound interesting though.

Yeah, he did do the space-set "Bio of a Space Tyrant" series which was good if that's the ones you mean?

Incarnations and Xanth are both fantasy. Of Man and Manta was a good series - fantasy.

The Mode series was good too which was sci-fi-ish fantasy.

Tarot - I never got round to readin, suppose I should check it out, maybe Pornucopia too :)

Think he might have had a hand in Total Recall also?
