The only fiction I've read:
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    At times THGTTG has seemed less like fiction than non-fiction. Anyone not seen a Vogon throw a coworker out the nearest airlock just because they couldn't appreciate the captain's 'poetry'? And who hasn't found themselves in a project with an SEP thrown around it? Though Marvin did seem a bit more cheerful than some I've worked with...

    [SEP - Somebody Else's Problem field - useful for encouraging people to not see things that are in plain sight, not acknowledging existence, etc.]

    I am very disappointed that The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy wasn't one of the choices. After all it is required reading here at the Monastary. :-)
