I could go with Nightwings by Silverberg or Nova by Delany , but If I'm gonna be honest about sheer impact on my life and taste in SF I have to go with the May 1979 issue of Heavy Metal . It really altered my canon-fueled view of the genre and contained the stunning "Entropics" by Marshall Rogers and Mark Arnold, which just slapped me across the head as to what SF could do. 2. One book you have read more than once? 3. One book you would want on a desert island? 4. One book that made you laugh? 5. One book that made you cry? 6. One book you wish had been written? A giant SF mega-crossover where Buck Rogers , Perry Rhodan , Dan Dare , Barbarella , Adam Strange , Santiago , and the Lensmen take on the Shrike , the Berserkers , the Xeelee , the Blight , and the Cthulhu pantheon . Is that too much to ask? 7. One book you wish had never had been written? 8. One book you are currently reading? 9. One book you have been meaning to read? 10. Now tag five people. As most of the blogs I frequent have already been tagged, I throw this over to the Gravity Lensmen at the Bar & Grill .
