  1. I’ve really got to read me some Cherie Priest one of these days. . .

    Martin for sure, and his older stuff too! and classic Asimov and Heinlein, and Banks and Pratchett, and China Mieville and Cat Valente and Gene Wolfe, man I could stock my dream bookstore all day!!

  2. I’d keep most of Philip K Dick’s work on the shelves, and also the Forever war [although not the sequels] and Starship Troopers. I would then force everyone to buy these each time they came in.

  3. Pingback: Outta town « the Little Red Reviewer

  4. Here goes: J.R.R. Tolkien, Fritz Leiber (especially the Fafhrd & Mouser books), Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Poul Anderson, All of the NESFA volumes, Hal Clement, David Eddings, the Swords books by Fred Saberhagen, and his Berserker books too. Phillip K. Dick, Ben Bova, Larry Niven, Greg Bear, Anne McCaffrey, James Blish, Roger Zelanzy, Christopher Anvil, Fredric Brown, Robert E. Howard. There are lots of newer authors too, but that’s who I’d get on the shelves first.

  5. Mid list! Def the midlist. The midlist always gets shanked. How many times have I gone I to a B&N, found Book 3 of Awesometude-That-I’ve-never-heard-of-before and then find that they don’t carry book 1? Boo!

    I can never find Julie Czerneda, Juliet E. McKenna, or C.S. Friedman
