Looking for a spooky space/alien series

My ultimate favorite books are Arthur C Clarke Odassay Series and Time Series! I am looking for something on that level of awe, wonder, amazement, and spookiness! Preferably by an established known author. Thanks.

A similar author that I enjoy very much is Stephen Baxter, who I guess you know about since he co-authored the Time Odyssey books with Clarke.

I enjoyed Titan, a novel about the discovery of life on Saturn's moon, Titan. Be warned though, the book can be depressing. Baxter doesn't shy away from just how dangerous space travel would be. (Hey, it's on sale for $1.99 right now!)

I also remember enjoying Manifold: Time. But it's been so long memories are sketchy. Baxter is the closest I've found in style to Clarke.

Besides Stephen Baxter, I also enjoyed Alistair Reynold's Pushing Ice. A crew of a spaceship that mines comets are ordered to follow Saturn's moon Janus when it inexplicably leaves orbit.

I have been nervous to read Stephen Baxter for I hated the Rama series I never got past book 1. I think he co-wrote it as well. You have no idea how i love oddassy and Time series. He was at the level beyond his time ( Arthur C. Clarke)

Are you confusing Stephen Baxter with Gentry Lee? IIRC, Gentry Lee co-wrote the Rama books (except the first) with Clarke.

I disagree. I found the first books to be a slug to get through. It was boring big time. Nothing really happened. It's akin to watching Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone's vault. It was a big build up yet the vault was empty.

My friend, the awful Rama series was co-written by Gentry Lee.

Stephen Baxter co-wrote the Time Odyssey series which you said you loved. So that's a plus for Baxter.
