[writing] Reading

About to jump into writing Green, so I spent the weekend filling my head with good stuff. I read an early draft of a very excellent book which you will see in 2009 or so, then I reread Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light Powell's | Amazon ] One of the true classics in our field, in a number of senses, and covering ground that still feels fresh forty years later. Plus his writing:
The day of the battle dawned pink as the fresh-bitten thigh of a maiden.

What are your favorite classics in our field, and why?
