    Umm...no.

    If you want to read good sci-fi, look up William Gibson and Neal Stephenson. Throw in some Phillip K Dick and you're set.

    I would nominate George R R Martin, but he's more in the fantasy camp than sci-fi.

    If you are actually looking for good hard boiled magical realism, and not someones WOD homebrew masquerading as literature, read Tim Powers.

    The best sci fi was written by Arthur C. Clarke, Philip K. Dick, and Kurt Vonnegut. Yes, I put Vonnegut in that category; if you disagree, you need to read more of his short stories.

    I find this thread topic kind of funny, because even when I was a young lad reading Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" books many years past, I thought all "t3h d34dly" wristlocking performed by some of the characters was BS.

    Royce Gracie is five feet tall and 100 pounds? Damn, the camera does add some pounds. And, apparently, some inches.

    I guess I should have added "effortlessly" to my original sentence. Karrin Murphy beats huge, tough guys with ridiculous ease. Royce Gracie worked for his victories.
