Re: Favorite Sci-Fi or Fantasy novel or short story.

I have a lot of favorites but one book I've really enjoyed over the years is by Maria Doria Russel. It's called "The Sparrow". It's about a group of explorers led by a Jesuit priest to another planet to contact an alien species. Needless to say things don't quite turn out as expected. Russel wrote a sequel called "Children of God" which was good but I thought was not as good as the original.

I've never read The Sparrow but it sounds great. I'll be sure to check it out. Thanks, Kimberly.

I don't think I have an exact favorite but I like writers like Neal Stephensen and Greg Egan.

Yes, I also like Neal Stephensen and Greg Egan's 'Diaspora' is on my list as one of my favorite novels. Thanks Jules for participating in the forum.
