I forced myself through all TEN of those goddamn books hoping for it to get better. It never did. I did like Battlefield Earth (the book) though. What SF forum are you referring to? I love SciFi. Currently reading, "A Fire Upon the Deep" by Vernor Vinge for the dozenth time or so.
If you are a sci-fi lover then how about trying some of David Weber's work? And I don't just mean the Honor Harrington series,

Picked these up today and struggling to decide which one to start with first :diablo:

THE THOUSAND PLAN RALPH BARKER
NIGHT FLYER LEWIS BRANDON DSO DFC
THE BIG SHOW PIERRE CLOSTERMANN DFC
PATHFINDER AIR VICE MARSHALL D C T BENNETT
ONLY OWLS AND BLOODY FOOLS FLY AT NIGHT GC TOM SAWYER DFC
NO MOON TONIGHT DON CHARLWOOD
THE EIGHTH PASSENGER MILES TRIPP
REAR GUNNER PATHFINDERS RON SMITH DFM

Can anyone recommend any of the above.....;)

Looking at your list of titles I'd say that it doesn't matter which you start with aas they are all good reading. Sorry, can't comment on The Eighth Passenger as I have not read it but the rest are all good so start where you will

Tell me about it. Have you read And Another Thing by JC? I'm convinced he's totally off his trolly.
