I gave it a 4.5/5 so up there with the other two.

Let's say, Rendezvous with Rama, Ubik, a bunch of Le Guin, Hyperion. Etc.

Hyperion such a fantastic novel. If you like Simmons I wonder if you've read his horror novel, Carrion Comfort? Well worth looking into. Chilling as all ****.

Well, my memory is awful so I have no recollection of that one (although I do seem to have read it and rated it as 2/5). I've read Hyperion, which I really liked, Fall of Hyperion, which was a bit disappointing, then Ilium which I found so terrible and off-putting that I stopped looking into this guy altogether.

I think Hyperion borders on horror, but speaking of Dune, I am just now reading it for the first time and so far so great. Very cinematic, reads like a screenplay. I hear the guy goes on some weird homophobic tangent in a later novel but this one so far seems free of overt prejudice (apart from maybe an undercurrent of misogyny).

Silence of the Lambs. I'm going through the Hannibal series now.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

I think I read two, then stopped, no particular reason. But I think the first was so different that it was going to be hard to follow it up.

I'd agree; the Shrike, after all, is straight out of HR Giger's worst nightmares.
