Yes I love Sirens of Titan which greatly influenced Watchmen. My wife accused that long running boring tv series 'Heroes' of ripping off 'Watchmen'. When I told her Watchmen itself is (I wont say ripped off but 'inspired' ;)) from 'Sirens' she immediately read it and loved it.

I also like Slaughterhouse 5 inspired from his WW2 experiences.

I prefer his short fiction, but Slaughterhouse Five is probably my favorite novel of his.

  • I have VGADD. I know that sounds painful, but once I get the SITP out I will no longer FUBAR my XB360. Although KISS has helped people like Dew in the past.

I know it has been awhile since anyone has posted here but i thought i would add that two of my favorites that were not mentioned above are Jailbird and Mother Night. If you haven't read them yet i would recommend it.

I also loved Slaughterhouse 5.  Did a high school book report on it, not really knowing what I was getting myself into.  Never heard of him until then.  I've read others, but none have captured my eye like S5
