Sci-fi book recommendation AskMe threads

What are some of your favorite AskMe threads which are focused on recommending sci-fi books? It seems like this is a topic which comes up some with some regularity, and I even posted one myself a few years ago (and got great results). So I'm sure there are many more similar threads out there, and I'd love to see the ones you think are best. Thanks!

You might take a look at the curated SF selection from a page on the MeFi wiki (mostly from ~2009).

There was this great post on here once about a story called Martian Chronicles or something, by this guy Cory Bradbury or something I can't remember.

Four years ago I posted this question asking for YA sci-fi suggestions for an independent study. Stumbled across it recently and laughed out loud. I'd totally forgotten that I asked it, but it was basically me fumbling around at the very beginning of a long journey that led to me having my own YA sci-fi review site and a YA sci-fi book deal, so, hey, that's cool.

The suggestions are pretty good, too.
