Well...when you have even the greats going to him for their ideas like Gene Rodenberry and Arthur C. Clark, you know you're the pinnacle.

I don't get passionate about many authors at all, but his stories are amazing. Ever heard of NightFall?

NIGHTFALL is a great short story, and you can get a free audio version of the book on a podcast called "Escape Pod"

After finishing HYPERION, I plan on reading the FOUNDATION trilogy.

If you're talking novels, I'm guessing FOUNDATION is the best place to start. Or maybe CAVES OF STEEL.

In a survey, NIGHTFALL was voted the greatest sci-fi short story of all time.
