John Anealio over at Sci Fi Songs has been doing a series “What is your favorite ‘space’ song?”
"Space Odyssey" has turned up more than once.
But it got me to thinking - how many sci-fi books are out there with 'space' in the title?
The answer? A LOT! See some of the books below:
Space Viking by H. Beam Piper
Pegasus in Space by Anne McCaffrey and Sharon Williams
Space Trilogy by C. S. Lewis (Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength)
Legends of the Space Marines by Christian Dunn
2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke
Hellsreach (Space Marines) by Aaron Dembski-Bowden
The Hunt for Voldorius (Space Marines) by Andy Hoare

and many, many others!
The Space Merchants was the oldest, written in the 50's, and a few aren't even out yet. But that was just the beginning of the 'space' books.
Wow! If I was on a quest to read 'space' books, I'd be woefully behind. I've read six. How many have you read?
Do I dare search for how many contain the word 'star?' Do I really want to know?
