Reading list: six stories for the SciFi newbie


…what if you never got into sci-fi in the first place? Where would you start?

If you or anyone you know would like to get into SciFi, you won’t go too far wrong with this list.

    I still have that very paperback edition of “I, Robot.”

    Another great source of classic sf: The Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Volume 1 of that series contains at least two stories that fans should recognize as the sources for excellent Star Trek and Twilight Zone episodes.
