Here are the answers to the SFF Game I posted a few days back. Vivek pointed out, the phrase "too tough" comes to mind, but these are some of the best books in the SFF genre. SFF for too long has come to mean just Asimov, Clarke and Tolkien.

Pick up these titles and you will realize there is more to SFF than just these three authors. Here is a small post I had written about this while I was at ISB. Anyway, the answers:

1. Low Key Lyesmith: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

2. Hiccup Forest: Hard to be a God by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky

3. Ansible: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

4. Planet IX: Dune by Frank Herbert

5. The Unthinking Depths: A Fire upon the Deep by Vernon Vinge

6. Progris Riport: Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keye

7. Kinakuta: Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson

8. H.O.L.M.E.S IV: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein

9. The Luggage: The Discworld Series by Terry Pratchett

10. Time Tombs: Hyperion by Dan Simmons

11. Grok: Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein

12. Sparrowhawk: A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula le Guin

13. Pilman Radiant: Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky

14. Saidin and Saidar: A Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan

15. Mazer Rackham: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

16. Melange: Dune by Frank Herbert

17. Number Ten Ox: Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart
