[LMB] So much classic SF...

I've always enjoyed Van Vogt's Null-A books, not so much for the characterisation or the plot, but for the concept.

Subject: [LMB] So much classic SF...

My grandfather, who was my gateway into Bujold, passed away last week after
98 years of voracious reading (I'm pretty sure he was reading SF minutes
after he was born). I feel like I barely knew him, although I probably knew
him better than many. He was a very quiet man. During the time when he was
living in England, I remember him flying over to visit us in Canada with
two empty briefcases which he would fill with SciFi books from our used
book stores because at the time the selection in England was not as
abundant.

I've just unpacked some boxes of books and I seem to have inherited the
complete works of Robert Heilein, Poul Anderson, Gordon Dixon, Larry Niven,
Arthur C. Clarke and A. E. van Vogt, along with a scattering of other
things.

I've read Stranger in a Strange Land and Starship Troopers, but that's
about it.

Does anyone have recommendations? Where do I begin?
