But I have nothing to read no longer an excuse

Why read an average book when you could read a great book? With so little time to read, why waste time on a so-so book? But how do you find the best books to read? Most people read whatever they stumble across at the moment. Other folks read book reviews and get recommendations from friends. Even fewer join book clubs.For those despairing of finding enough decent science fiction to read, James W. Harris sets out how to find the best science fiction books to read, including his own classics of science fiction list.
But wait, there's more:
* From the good folks at the Nine Worlds con, the recommended reading list of all the books recommended at panels there.
* From Nick Wood, a list of specifically African science fiction books, also from Nine Worlds.
* Be sure to also read his Science Fiction in South Africa series
* Bowdoin College is doing a World Science Fiction course and has set up a supporting site with recommended books, both fiction and non-fiction
* Or take a look at the Great Science Fiction and Fantasy site run by Eric Walker
