My Favorite Science Fiction Novels

And I mean "Science Fiction" in the broad sense like it used to mean back in the 1950's, no sub-genres. This isn't really in any order of importance, this is just a list of books that have been important to me through out the years.

1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury


2. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien


3. Conan by Robert E. Howard


4. Dune by Frank Herbert


5. Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs


6. Bill The Galactic Hero by Harry Harrison


7. The Puppet Masters By Robert Heinlein


8. At The Mountains Of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft


9. The Witch World by Andre Norton


10. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley


11. American Gods by Neil Gaiman


12. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess


13. A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L'Engle


14. Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart


15. Dragon Flight by Anne McCaffrey


16. Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick


17. Swords and Deviltry by Fritz Leiber


18. Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein


19. Elric of Melnibone by Michael Moorcock


20. Hrolf Kraki's Saga by Poul Anderson


21. Tower of Glass by Robert Silverberg


Okay, so it turned out to be an odd number. Maybe I'll do another 21 later!
