A snapshot and list of books I have collected and used as a writer of literary fiction over the years. Some I have found invaluable, others I consider a "read once." Those of you who attended my panels, know why many titles were included. A few other books are for technical reference, others for inspiration. I also suggest a number of other books on star ships, astronomy, biotechnology, weapons, and general sciences for reference.
