    We're a few shy of 128 right now, so I'll make a few more tonight when I get the chance and see if we can get up to a nice round number like that.

    I see most of my favorites have already been nominated, so I'll drop a few noms off the top of my head.

    To me, Webster?s definition of science fiction works: ?dealing principally with the impact of actual or imagined science upon society or individuals.?

    Considering that, here goes:

    1. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: There's at least three scientific inventions in the film, and the whole book deals with their impacts.

    2. Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein

    3. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis

    4. Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov
