Vote For Top-100 Science Fiction, Fantasy Titles on NPR.org

August 4, 2011 at 7:20 pm by xoanon  - 

Last month we asked you, our audience, to nominate titles for a top-100 list of the best science fiction and fantasy ever written. The response was overwhelming — almost 5,000 of you posted to the NPR site alone, and many thousands more offered suggestions on Facebook. We’ve tabulated those suggestions and, with the help of an expert panel, narrowed the list to a manageable field of a few hundred titles. Scrolling through the list of great science fiction and fantasy reads below will feel like a journey back in time for some of us, a voyage of discovery for others.

    Voted! I have not read nearly all of the books on the list and I feel that will make it more skewed. That said, there are some books I think I would put on even if I’d read all of them. The Silmarillion and Lord of the Rings are two of them obviously, but also The Man in the High Castle and World War Z. Wish they had more Vonnegut though ( did see some of his books on there) and lack of Harry Potter seems a major oversight considering its critical acclaim and popularity. I’m glad they put the classics up, though. Orwell, Shelley, Verne, Wells and the others…they’re all important and they’re classics for a reason. Come to think of it I put on Frankenstein and 1984 as well, and I wouldn’t remove them either. No Hobbit on the list though!

    They allowed, what, all of thirty seconds to vote in this poll? I just checked over there and it’s already closed.
