SF Books physical scientists ought to read
However, that got me thinking laterally: what are the science fiction works that physicists ought to read?
- Timescape - Benford
- Practise Effect - Brin (well, maybe only if you're a Techer)
- Baroque Trilogy + Cryptonomicon - Stephenson
- Stories of Your Life - Chiang
- Fire Upon the Deep - Vinge (actually also several others)
- Screwfly Solution - Tiptree
- Road not Taken - Turtledove
- Antibodies - Stross
and then there's the classics of course, Wells, Verne, Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein, Smith, Huxley, Orwell.
But there's plenty more "must reads" out there. Will update as I get comments.
And not the "literary SF" - a lot of that is good stuff, but I'm after SF that makes you think about physical sciences.
