Edgar Allan Poe - The Complete Works Collection

Edgar Allan Poe scared the life out of me when I was a kid. ‘The Black Cat’ still haunts me. I’d never read anything as dark and yet beautifully poetic before. Give him a whirl.

Fahrenheit 451

My most prized fan autograph is a copy of this book signed ‘To Rick, Ray Bradbury.’ Prescient story. Unfortunately.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Jules Verne was the god of the cool machines. This is his masterwork as far as I'm concerned. Submarines, sinking ships, giant squids, AND a tortured genius. What else do you need?

The Foundation Trilogy (Dramatized)

A massive, epoch-spanning work of art and science. Asimov will always be one of the greats.

We Are Legion (We Are Bob)

Humor and sci-fi are a natural combo as far as I'm concerned. (See World on Fire. 😊)
