Great idea for a thread Buck. Surprised to see you haven't read any Asimov if you are a sci-fi fan. He is part of the foundation of sci-fi, please forgive the pun. There are some great books and series in this thread. I'd like to nominate some story collections.

1. The Science Fiction Hall of Fame Volume 1, 2A & 2B books are a gold mine for sampling the evolution of sci-fi. (below)
2.The Nebula Awards and Hugo Awards (selected yearly, pick a year)
3. Years Best SF Annual publication, pick any volume from 1 to the current volume 17
