Alephi : Which sci.fi. book do you like?
Kevin J. Anderson : It should be no surprise that DUNE would be the seminal work of science fiction I’d pick. I have read it again and again, and each time I find something richer, deeper, more complex. Frank Herbert was far ahead of the rest of the genre when he wrote this book, and it certainly changed my life when I read it. It has excellent world building, characters, politics, and a complex plot. I loved it, and also admire the various unexpected directions he explored in the sequel novels.
