City of Heroes: The Freedom Phalanx, 2006, Robin D. Laws
I do get mistily nostalgic for this game, sometimes, even though Guild Wars 2 gives me pretty much exactly what I want out of an MMO, and COH was so tied into genre conventions the class names were actually just descriptions of combat roles.
But it was fun to play dress-up and run around a city killing Nazis on bad days.

I do, and do not, miss the “wacky comedy” era of sci-fi/fantasy novels.

The Frighteners, 1996, Michael Jahn
I like the subtle implication that Michael J. Fox is right up there with zombie/ghost cowboy as something to be feared.

To overreact to a scene involving a refrigerator, turn to page 86.
