Thanks to Jim Henley's timely advance notice, we managed to tape the whole SciFi channel Battlestar Galactica marathon. Finished watching it. Is very very good. Thanks, Jim.
In one of his BSG-blogging posts (sorry, can't be bothered to try and actually find a link), Jim said something like this: critics should stop saying that BSG is breaking new ground by doing X, Y, and Z, because the good science fiction has been covering these themes for years.
So, I stopped reading science fiction after high school, except for the occasional William Gibson or Neal Stephenson. I'd love to read some of this good, BSG-quality science fiction - especially since I've got some long flights coming up - but don't want to waste any time or money on dreck. So what ARE the great, essential sci-fi books of the last decade or two? What should I read?
