Philip K. D1ck-->had to do it this way because it kept changing it to richard
Possibly in my opinion best Sci-Fi writer of all time. The joy of his books is in the altered time and space. Two to try if you are interested are :martian time slip and eye in the sky. Check out HereHe is the guy who wrote the short stories that Minority report and Paycheck where based as well as Bladerunner.

Here is an author whose books I was sent because I like dragons and I like assasains. That is what the books are about. Mostly assassains but some dragons. When I first recieved these books I really wanted to not like them strictly because I didn't want to read another series. Bioy I am glad I did. I would read The Farseer Trilogy and then The Tawny Man Trilogy. I really liked The Tawny Man Trilogy.

Best Fantasy author ever. Everyone here must read the Vlad Taltos series. I would write more but it would be wasted

I think Man in the High Castle would be a good introduction to PKD. Yes, it is an earlier book of his, but it isn't too "spacey" or deeply philosophical as his later works.

Personally, I always considered him to be more of a philosophical writer than a sci-fi author.

Man in the High Castle is probably a good introduction, however I do consider it to be more philisophical. Whereas Martian Time Slip is very much Sci Fi, it just isn't typical.

Also I forgot Verner VingeHis books are also awesome. I believe they are Fire upon the Deep and Deepness in the Sky
