You Vote: NPR’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy

June 22, 2011

So, you may have already heard, but NPR is taking nominations for an upcoming Top-100 list of the Best Science Fiction & Fantasy books.

They have a few rules: no YA fantasy or science fiction (which cuts out Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, and my personal childhood favorite, the Prydain Chronicles), no horror and no Paranormal Romance (which means no Stephen King or Stephanie Meyer) – although that last rule seems, to me, to be a bit unclear, because the line between Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy is pretty thin and fuzzy, and the latter is definitely SF&F…

Anyway, the excluded genres and subgenres they intend to cover in later Best-1oo lists, so they say that’s why.

If you haven’t already, you can go and nominate your five favorites in the comments here.

      Hmm… really? I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my favorite SF book ever. Then again… I much, much prefer Fantasy anyway, so it’s hard to judge SF. The only SF I put in my nominations was Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game”. Have you read that?
