Sci-Fi Literature

Before we take a closer look at this theme, I would like to recommend a Sci-Fi book that shaped my view on the genre, it’s a classic from the 60′s, but despite its age it’s incredibly modern and is probably one of the most-read Sci-Fi classics ever. Halo fans will feel right at home just by reading the introduction. Alternatively, if you think you’re not quite ready to read this, there are some great Halo Books

Starship Troopers – book from the 60′s, possibly an inspiration for the entire Halo game franchise:
