    Oh, oh! Have you read The Gods themselves? I'd place it second to Bicentennial Man for all the Asimov I've read.

    And the V.AL.I.S. Trilogy by Phil Dick is quite the trip, as well. Though I am unsure if that can still be qualified as Sci-Fi. Anyway, that's where most of my understanding of gnosticism comes from.

    General warning to whomever it may concern: it may be ill-advised to read Dick's works if you suffer from a mental condition.

    I'll take that bet.

    I rather liked Evidence, from Aasimov's robot series.

    For other sci-fi: if you have not read Ender's Game, do so. The rest of the Ender's novels I would consider optional, but that one is excellent. I also rather liked Ender's Shadow and the other ones set on earth. Also the series of the first formic war Earth Unaware, Earth Afire, Earth Awakens.)
