The Mars Trilogy is pretty good. need to finish it off sometime.
but UlG keeps putting out new books. Her "Changing Planes" is 
quite funny. "Birthday of the World" was good as well.

and I'm surprised no one's mentioned Marge Piercy yet. She totally
rocks. As well as SF ("Women on the Edge of Time" and "Body of Glass")
she has done an excellent book on the French Revolution ("City of
Darkness, City of Light"). All three are libertarian (left!) in 
spirit and really great reads.

I've read a few of his books. Got the "Colour of Magic" when it first
came out. I use him to break "readers block" -- i.e. I just cannot read
a book. Pratchett is fun and easy to read. and funny as well.
