Must-Read Books About Space!

And whether each book takes place at the end of a long journey across space, on a fleet of warships patrolling the universe, or at the moment of first contact with an alien species, the thread combining all of these books is the thought of Space as a character onto itself. Space with a capital S. Space as a stand-in for all that we don’t know, but could discover.
