2wolves: "Under our system every voter and officeholder is a man who has demonstrated through voluntary and difficult service that he places the welfare of the group ahead of personal advantage."― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers
Makh: List fails without the Republicans telling of the Iraq Wars. That's right, I politicized this thread!!11! Hoooyeah!/I feel only slightly bad
King Something: The article is about SCIENCE fiction, and I think we all know where they stand on science.
gameshowhost: What about science fiction just-returned-from-war stories?
RexTalionis: gameshowhost: What about science fiction just-returned-from-war stories?Represented by The Forever War.
gameshowhost: RexTalionis: gameshowhost: What about science fiction just-returned-from-war stories?Represented by The Forever War.Oh, okay.What about science fiction going-off-to-war stories?
RexTalionis: gameshowhost: RexTalionis: gameshowhost: What about science fiction just-returned-from-war stories?Represented by The Forever War.Oh, okay.What about science fiction going-off-to-war stories?Uh, probably also The Forever War.
costermonger: I really should read The Forever War.
Befuddled: Starship Troopers (the book) is highly overrated. There, I said it.
Harry_Seldon: I predict a 1000 year of war and destruction after the collapse of the great Galactic capital planet, Trantor.
Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: .....Firefly?I guess its cancellation was important for generating lots of fan butthurt./And 40k? Seriously? WTF is that doing on this list?//I'm sure I'll be persuaded otherwise by the horde of image macros with overzealous quotes and baroque-style power armor that's soon to follow...
doglover: Warhmer 40k is a bit weird all inclusive, but the idea of the Empire and Space Marines is indeed one of the best sci fi war stories ever. 100 times better than Ender and his video game.
wildcardjack: List fails so hard without The Chronicles of the Lensmen.
Because People in power are Stupid: [g-ecx.images-amazon.com image 301x500]
J. Frank Parnell: Also heard something once about the author using the enemy insects as an allegory for communist forces, so i can see it might get some mileage as a propaganda tool.
sirgrim: No Babylon 5?
fergalicious: wildcardjack:List fails so hard without The Chronicles of the Lensmen.So much this. Lensman pretty much invented space warfare. And they're a great read to boot.Probably because it predates everything they've read.Also this.
SickAsAParrot: Galactic Patrol was the first sci-fi book I ever read
theflatline: I am going with this one.[upload.wikimedia.org image 177x289]
