Along with Heinlein, Bradbury, and Verne, would note some quality, lesser-known authors:
"The Soulless One," Mark Prophet;
"Above Black," Dan Sherman, http://www.aboveblack.com
"Entering the Circle" and "The Master of Lucid Dreams," Dr. Olga Kharitidi;
"1984" and "Animal Farm," Orwell;
"Hyperspace," Dr. Michio Kaku;
"The Great Divorce," C. S. Lewis.
These are "science fictiony," but sometimes in a general sense.
Would also recommend: "Expecting Adam," Martha Beck;
"The Overachievers," Alexandra Robbins;
"The Beautiful Story of a Master," Louise-Marie Frenette;
"Extraordinary Knowing," Dr. Elizabeth Mayer;
"Men in White Apparel," Ann Ree Colton;
"A Wrinkle in Time" series, Madeline L'Engle;
"West with the Night," Beryl Markham;
"Psychonavigation," John Perkins;
"The Neverending Story," Michael Ende.

I'm not a big science fiction fan, but my husband, who is, likes Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Frank Herbert, Arthur C. Clarke and Robert Heinlen.
He also loves the humorous science fiction of Douglas Adams
he also really likes Terry Pratchett's 'Discoworld' series, which are really fantasty rather than science fiction, but you might like those too
He's also a big fan of Clive Cussler, but to be honest I'm not sure whether his books are science fiction or not!

Anything by HG Wells or Jules Verne. Also, it's not exactly Sci-fi (it's more of a social commentary) but anything by George Orwell (Animal Farm, 1985).
