Science Fiction- The Hard Stuff

Do you read Science Fiction?   I'm talking hard sci-fi?  Just curious. I have always been fascinated by science and technology and I will always love the art of story. Putting the two together, is for me, the highest form of art.  So I'm curious.  Where on the web do you go to check out the latest sci-fi reads?

Science Fiction sites like show a boat load of movies and comic book references.  Sci-fi lends itself to big blockbuster movies.     

But I'm more curious about the books, so I clicked their book tab and look what I found, more movie references.

But I wanted to share more than just movie mentions so I've compiled a short Science Fiction list for you.
Project Gutenberg's Science Fiction book shelf:

Site for the Hugo Awards: 
Great list of books to read. 2009 Zoe's Tale by John Scalzi was a nominee. I will read anything by Scalzi. I love his dry humor.

SFWA's page for the Nebula Awards:
Another great list of books to read. Winner in 2000, Darwin's Radio by Greg Bear is a fave of mine.

And look at this, Technology Review, MIT's science magazine, is launching a fiction magazine called TRSF

So please share, what are your favorite reader sites for Science Fiction? 
And by the way Happy Friday the 13th!


  1. I love Scalzi too and read his blog all the time. Thanks for the great lists!

    1. I stumbled upon his work when I found Zoe's Story. It was categorized as YA sci-fi... I'm not sure if it really qualifies, but it was such a great read that I went on to read Old Man's War, also an excellent hard SF about what it means to be human. Scalzi's dark humor gets me every time. ;)

    2. Oh, and his blog... he is the most prolific blogger I've ever subscribed to! ;)

  2. Thanks for the list!
