    I don't know how to suggest where to start from... either "The Giants" trilogy (which ended up being 5 books...) or by his other titles "Paths to Otherwhere" or "The Proteus Operation"...

    Noted! I think I'd like to read the whole Giants series since I've heard it recommended as an excellent hard sf series a number of times. I'm guessing the others you've mentioned are your favourite Hogan stand-alone works?

    Yes. The following "Giant" books (The Gentle Giants of Ganimedes, Giants Star, Entoverse and Mission to Minerva) are very good and it would be a nice start... And yes, those three are my main favorites among the favorites.

    Thanks for the heads up Nestor. I didn't recall The Two Moons and yet I was just surprised to learn that bought it in 2014. Now I remember Inherit the Stars to some extent but not Gentle Giants of Ganymede so I've got a new book to start reading and potentially many new books of his vast bibliography.

    I have several of his books in .mobi and .epub format, if you are interested.

    Are you currently reading any SF, Nestor?

    Read the first three of the Giants series, pretty sure they were all together in an omnibus from SFBC. That was decades ago. I think Thrice Upon a Time is the only other I've read, but I can't even remember if I liked it. I had a few others on my shelves until a year or so ago when I found out Hogan was a Holocaust denier. That disqualified him as someone I would care about.
