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!
