I began a thread to try and list all of the truly Epic SF and great space opera that is out there. At the risk of a scolding and/or merging, I started a new thread to house the list. Mainly so we can have a fresh discussion on what's missing from this list and what might not really be epic enough to be on here. There are some people like Sawyer, Baxter, Banks and other I just don't know enough about to judge their epic-ness. I know there are even more out there so I figure 11 less pages might be a good start for revised discussion. List in the post below.
