         Sorry,  but this brings it to the letter P for my absolute favorite author:

              Edgar Allan Poe
                     
                     The Telltale Heart   :s07

Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle

The Mote in God's Eye

A novel about first contact with an alien race

Ladies first, KC. :)  :se

Besides, I have a real good choice for 'S', so I won't be put out, honestly.  ;D

If you can find it (probably the library), you'll really enjoy it.   :sk  :sk
