I would think "Sranger in a Strange Land" would be Heinlein's most
influential book since also it introduced a word to the vocabulary. Grok.
Samuel R. Delaney's book "Babel 17" I'd agree with. And Of course LMB's
"Civil Campaign" I'm glad to see Leigh Brackett on the list. But I think
Zelazny's Amber series as well as J. R.R. Tolkien should have been on this
list not to mention Fritz Lieber.
