As a teen I loved 'the hiitch hikers guide to the Galaxy' series

Now I love Douglas Coupland, (also a stoner)

He sets his some stories in the near future ,
Some are dead on the 'zeitgeist' of the time.
I call it future fiction but not sure what retailers would say.

Most recent book of his that I have read is 'Generation Y'
A future in 10-15 years or so where we have killed off the bees and honey is the price of gold.

Most recent read..

If you like like science fiction short stories I highly recommend Ted Chiang "stories of your life and others".

My favorite book of all time is Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut. I have read it at least 3 times. It was his second novel, and from 1959!

space travel, and a mars invasion on earth make it such a fun read.

The OMNI anthologies of best SF short stories of the year, it was mind expanding to think of the possibilities of the future of life
