Strictly speaking SF, I started out with Asimov, Clarke, van Vogt, Heinlein, Lem, Vance, Niven, Dick, eventually drifted into Rucker, Cadigan, Gibson, Sterling, and then fell into into Noon, Vinge, Stross, Doctorow, and beyond.
I don't know about replaced. Branching trees, not straight lines. But of the "classics", only Phil K. Dick gets re-read sometimes. Because he rocked so hard.
