    Well it depends what he's into. My favourite series of books is the Troy series by David Gemmel. I have read those books many times. My favourite Sci-Fi book is Hitchhickers Guide to the galaxy. I'm also a big gamer so i like to read the Halo series and The assassins creed series. Hope it helps

    I definitely recommend The Troy series

    the only faith I somewhat have ever encountered with greater effective SciFi in it than Mormonism is Dianetics. Mormons have self concept: God became into as quickly as a guy from yet yet another planet. adult males can become gods of their very own planets quicker or later.
