Rebuilder's been reading a bunch lately, James P. Hogan specifically.
Rockets, Redheads and Revolution
Minds, Machines, and Evolution
Chaos, Catastrophe, and Confusion
Kicking the Sacred Cow
These are collections of short sci-fi tales, and include essays on various engineering, political, and scientific topics.
Hogan asks fair questions, and gets unpopular answers. He questions junk science in many realms. Among the topics he reams over are HIV/AIDS, Evolution, Global Warming, Environmentalism, and Astronophysics. When he finds questionable conclusions, he calls them out. When he finds tautologies, assumptions, and shortcuts, he flags them. Its easy to find him in the right because liberals seem to hate him so much.
