Recent convert...where to start?
I recently decided to start reading sci-fi. My past reading list is made up of non-fiction (war/death/destruction...usual light reading) but I want to delve into a different world. I tried fantasy for a while there (brooks/erikson/jordan) but they are either dull as hell or a rip off of LOTR.
I've always been a fan of sci-fi movies but haven't taken on reading it yet. I think what I am interested in is military sci-fi. I am about to start The Forever War. Don't know if i'll like it, but that seems to be a good start. I went to my local book store today and was blinded by all the titles. I have no clue about what's good basically and I need some pointers
