Another "must read" for me is
The Book of the New Sun
by Gene Wolfe. It's a mix of fantasy and science-fiction set in the far far future, when our Sun is dying. The main charater, a torturer, and the world he is living in, are quite fascinating.
So many outstanding SF authors not yet mentioned (I think). Here's a few.
Canadian William Gibson - the originator of Cyberpunk, John Brunner - who wrote many of the best genre novels ever ( Squares of the City, Stand on Zanzibar, Shockwave Rider, The Sheep Look Up) and Harlan Ellison - maybe the most clever SF writer ever.
