I think the entire field of science fiction has gone down the tubes. Only the old stuff is any good. Discuss.

I Think that possibly that you aren't reading the good stuff. Recent writers I like include Ian Banks and Vernor Vinge.

Besides the obvious Cherryh.

Some of the older writers, like Asmov and Clark, I Think aer overrated.

I am not a big fan of any of them, btw. I guess I like some of their attitude... (to offer some books for free)

Cherryh wrote Downbelow Stationa and Cyteen, which both won Hugos.

*I guess the first book or two by Weber might be OK, if you just want something fun.
