I was so disappointed in Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, I quit reading his stuff.
Larry Niven with Ringworld knocked me out when I read it. I considered it THE masterpiece of sci fi. I wonder if we will ever see a version of that world as we set out to explore the stars.
At some point, I read Rendezvous with Rama...which I now consider the most important sci fi book of all time. It teaches a lesson we all should learn...and one I have been trying to get through to one of the regulars in the Philosophy area.
Kind of the opposite situation to Larry Niven who had a column in Byte magazine, which I found quite annoying

Memory playing tricks... strike out "Larry Niven", substitute "Jerry Pournelle".
