Recommendation List - Top Science Fiction and Fantasy

Recommendation List

In 2011, NPR used their annual summer readers' survey to generate a comprehensive list of the best science fiction and fantasy books ever written. In 2021, they updated the list to reflect readers' evolving tastes and a number of newer writers. We can't squeeze all 150 titles into this page, so we added  them to our blog: 100 Classic SF & Fantasy Novels and 50 New SF & Fantsay Novels
