First person Scifi/Fantasy books/authors?
Advertisements [?]
Ive read an aweful lot, but I never really paid attention to what writing perspective an author chose.

Now I am. and I am wondering what books/authors are written/write in first person, because I cannot think of any, but i know they must be out there. If they are good books, so much the better.

Any suggestions to put on my list?
