    So since this is the one book I really wanted to read and haven’t been able to get my hands on yet, I’ll throw my hat in for the giveaway! The first book that came to mind when I asked myself what is your favourite SF book, was vN by Madeline Ashby, so I’m going to go with that as my gut answer ;)

      Sweet :). I believe Paul is quite fond of Ashby. I’ve not read her work yet.

    My favorite is the scifi I ever read – The Foundation.
