Flavorwire’s 50 Sci-fi And Fantasy Novels That Everyone Should Read

wrinkleIf you’re looking to kick off September with some quality fiction, make sure to check out Flavorwire’s 50 Sci-fi and Fantasy novels everyone should read list. The list, which features well known classics like Ender’s Game, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, A Wrinkle In Time and Hitchiker’s Guide, also features a few more contemporary additions like Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Yu’s How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe and Miéville’s The City & The City. I applaud the inclusion of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series. I think some people forget how good those books really were after the film adaptation’s various shortcomings. Find the complete list of genre gems over at flavorwire.
