I do these core lists every two weeks and while most of them are not
relevent to this group, this particular one is. Although maybe for here
I should call it 20 core SF mystery fans might enjoy.

I was a science fiction fan long before I was a mystery and/or
thriller fan, and I'm sad to say I've read none of the books
on your list.

I guess I'm more of a hard science fiction reader type in the
mold of Heinlein and Kim Stanley Robinson rather than the authors
on your list.

Thanks for posting it. Food for thought for others.

Nyssa, who has stacks of books to try to get through yet keeps
adding more

That's not sad! It means you have more potential reads to keep an
eye out for!

- sigh -

More for the pile. :-)

Good list, and I really like that Hal Clements Needle is on it.

But I miss Asimovs "Caves of Steele".

And I really recommend Ben Winters "The Last Policeman".

So many books, so little time ...
