Anything by Isaac Asimov
The Dragons of Pern and the worlds of Anne McCaffrey
Anything by Michael Crichton
Sci-fi is best when it's believable. I love glimpses into the future!
Some of Heinlein's early works and Time Enough for Love - although I hated "Stranger in a Strange Land." A lot of Asimov.
Simon Hawke's "The Wizard of 4th Street" series, including "The Nine Lives of Catseye Gomez."
John Morrissey's Kedrigern series.
McCaffrey of course.
I can't pin down a favorite.
However the reason I love them is that they got me through puberty, when it was hard to relate to the people around me. I'm still trying to stamp out some of Heinlein's political stance that got absorbed in High School.
For pure Science Fiction, Robert Heinlien's Stranger in a Strange land. For fantastic Science Fiction, Voyage to Arcturus. (can't recall the author. Will have to look him up.)
I think Harlan Ellison's books were always favorites of mine as well. Dangerous Visions and Again Dangerous Visions come to mind.
Sometimes I'm shocked by what I read...
Sure some other guys have a great bulk of books that are pretty good but one book... It's Dune. Read it again for the first time because it's new and better every time.

I like Ubik by Phillip K. Dick. It's full of ideas, strange characters, and good old plain confusion. I used to like Asimov when I was younger, but now he just plods along.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I was intrigued by every moment of the book. I was up all night, and all morning into the next day. I finished reading that entire book within 24 hours. I don't know why I liked it so much. It was exciting; especially since it was the last of the Harry Potter series.
A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
Burgess wrote of a future where consumerism and violence ruled. Sadly his predictions have come true. He was also bold enough to invent a new youth language, something that has also evolved.
I loved reading Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code
I think it is one of the best Sci-fiction novels ever written.....worth reading again and again
