     Best Epic Novel
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson — Codebreaking, data havens, and high finance mix with love, war, and intrigue across three generations.

The Eight by Katherine Neville — Especially loved by those who like to think and those who enjoy chess.

     Most Illuminating
Genesis by William Harbinson — An ingenious and engrossing exposé of the forces at work behind many of the anomalies of the twentieth century. Of course, it's fiction, but … who knows?*
     Most Hilarious
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams — Insanely funny and memorably imaginative.
     Best Fantasy Series
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein — Many have emulated this trilogy but none have done it better. A truly wondrous tale, wonderfully written. Read The Hobbit first.
      Best Post-Catastrophe Novel
Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle — Mankind fights to survive a comet strike.
     Best Alien-Contact Tale
The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle — When Larry and Jerry get together, wonderful books happen and this is their masterpiece.

     Best Halloween Story
Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury — Two youths encounter high strangeness when Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show rolls into their Midwestern town.
     Best Psycho-Killer Novel
The Silence Of The Lambs by Thomas Harris — Even if you've seen the movie, the book is well worth your time.
     Best Apocalyptic Epic
The Stand by Stephen King — The world's most popular horror writer at his very best. His characters (several of whom did not make it to the TV mini-series) are especially well developed. A long, dark tale you will never forget.
     Best Culture Critique
Stranger In a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein — Morality, love, and religion are examined through the eyes of an outsider who was raised by Martians. A classic of the 1960s, this marvelous book remains relevant, thought-provoking, and entertaining today.
     Most Inventive Plot Device
To Your Scattered Bodies Go by Philip Jose Farmer — This is the first volume of the Riverworld sci-fi saga, in which all of the humans who ever lived on earth are brought back to life simultaneously on an artifical planet, thus allowing for the (otherwise impossible) interplay of historical characters such as Mark Twain, Tom Mix, and Sir Richard Burton as they search for the planet's architects.
     Most Intense Thriller
Vertical Run by Joseph R. Garber — Why is everybody (even his family and friends) trying to kill David Elliot?
     Best Animal Tale
Watership Down by Richard Adams — A tale of tragedy and triumph; so enthralling you will quickly forget that its protaganists are rabbits.
     Best Alternative History
The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson — What sort of world would the Chinese, Arabs, and Native Americans have forged if the Bubonic Plague had truly wiped out Europe? Fascinating food for thought.
