This Recording proposes a list of the one hundred greatest science fiction and fantasy novels. Here are the first ten:
100. The Word For World Is Forest by Ursula K. LeGuin
99. Sorcerer's Son by Phyllis Eisenstein
98. Beggars in Spain by Nancy Kress
97. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch
96. Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
95. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
94. The Company by K.J. Parker
93. An Evil Guest by Gene Wolfe
92. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
91. Danny, The Champion of the World by Roald Dahl
I've actually read very few of these, as I prefer to stare at flickering electronic screens most of the day. But some of these are intriguing picks. And I had no idea that Vladimir Nabokov had written science fiction.
What titles would you place on such a list?
