I ended up with a bunch of Ben Bova novels because I should enjoy reading books about stuff like the colonization of the solar system, but so far I regret every one. It's not just that he's sexist, I think - I can enjoy the old sexist SF where women are either invisible or girlfriends - it's that he seems to think he's good at writing strong feminist female characters and he really, really isn't, so I can't even just ignore it.
