8 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books That Deserve a Screen Adaptation

The 8 books are:
  • The Warrior’s Apprentice, Lois McMaster Bujold
  • Kushiel’s Dart, Jacqueline Carey (Kushiel’s Legacy)
  • The Caves of Steel, Isaac Asimov (The Robot Series)
  • Daggerspell, Katharine Kerr (Deverry Cycle)
  • All Systems Red, Martha Wells (The Murderbot Diaries)
  • His Majesty’s Dragon, Naomi Novik (Temeraire)
  • Dragonflight, Anne McCaffrey (Dragonriders of Pern)
  • Magic’s Pawn, Mercedes Lackey (The Last Herald-Mage)
If I recall correctly, the Robot series is loosely connected to Asimov's Foundation universe. Many of his future science fiction novels and short stories were intended to be set in that universe.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Pern books brought to the big screen, but they are based on such a ridiculously bad bit of physics (the thread lifeforms passing through space from a planet that orbits near Pern every 200 years for about 50 years) that they should come up with a new explanation for the conflict.
