SF book recommendations wanted...

It looks like I'll be writing one or two papers for the ESA's ITSF project, most
likely in the areas of extraterrestrial mining and in terraforming Venus. The
papers will basically review a number of technological concepts found in science
fiction used in these subject areas, and evaluate their practicality and
potential for near term development (they have not gotten back to me with a
definition of what 'near term' means). Each paper is to be around ten pages
(bibliography not counted), so I'd like to cover as much material as possible.
While my own SF reading is pretty good, its likely that I've missed something,
so I'm putting out a request that people recommend titles for me to look up that
deal with at least one of these two subjects, just so I don't forget anything...
