Classic SciFi Books
There are some classic SciFi writers, like Robert A. Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin and Neal Stephenson, whose work has come to define the genre. There are other authors too though, like Thomas Pynchon or even Suzanne Collins, who have taken science fiction writing in strange new directions or written modern, popular series. I might not classify them all as "classic," but I do think that all theses aspects and recommendations of a wide-ranging and imaginative genre can be considered essential reading for the SciFi lover. Interested in finding out where you rank on the scale of SciFi literature expertise? This survey of science fiction literature from the beginnings of its popularity up to the modern writing age will give you an idea of where you stand. Me? I scored 26, and Cryptonomicon is another one that I'd like to read soon. How many SciFi classics do you have checked off your list?
