Arriving at the realm of the Sea-Kings, Carse discovers that his mind has been possessed by Rhiannon himself, who seeks atonement for his ancient crimes. For those who enjoy science fantasy, this is entertaining stuff complete with a reluctant villainess: Ywain, the fierce warrior princess-heir of Sark, who sorry longs to be dominated by the manly Carse. Navigating a London gone haywire, Masen rescues Josella Playton, a wealthy novelist, from a blind man who has forced her to serve as his guide… and the two of them plan to join a colony of the sighted outside London.
Instead, they are kidnapped by a group that chains sighted men and women to groups of the blind, and forces them to scavenge for food and supplies. Masen eventually escapes and helps establish a self-sufficient colony in Sussex… which, unfortunately, is menaced not only by hordes of triffids but by a militarized rival colony! Even as the Old Man directs government efforts to combat the invasion of these body-snatchers, Sam is puppetized by a slug!
Limbo is: a sometimes tedious, aggravating work of genius; a post-apocalyptic antiwar treatise that is skeptical of pacifism; and a serious novel of ideas written by an inveterate punster. The disarmament movement has split into two factions: one remains helpless; the other replaces the missing limbs with powerful artificial ones. During WWIII, while the American male workforce was fighting overseas, out of necessity American engineers made tremendous strides in automating most manual labor.
Today in the near future , most Americans are either busy and fulfilled engineers and managers, on the one hand, or discontented idlers, on the other. An anthropologist and Episcopalian minister, Reverend Lasher, persuades Paul that life without meaningful work is boring and inhuman; Paul begins to fantasize about quitting his job and living off the grid.
What will transpire when the revolution begins? Spoiler alert: So are the detectives Thomson and Thompson, and a spy working for a foreign power! The rocket-landing artwork is superb. Someone will have to die, if the others are to survive. A thrilling, semi-serious, semi-humorous sci-fi adventure. Jacobs, who had recently enjoyed success with a sci-fi comic, The Secret of the Swordfish.
PS: Elon Musk is a fan. In the final section of the book, Lt. Barrows, a gifted engineer who worked for the US Air Force until he apparently went insane, discovers that he was a victim of the gestalt — who wanted to prevent him from discovering the secret of their antigrav device, not to mention their very existence. Will Hip fight back against the mutants… or join them? A cartoonish but gripping police procedural. Fun fact: Winner of the first Hugo Award.
His application was denied. Frederik Pohl and C. Not so. Venus, meanwhile, is a hellhole — it will take generations before colonists can live there in anything but harsh conditions. What will Courtenay do? A gentle teenager, who loves to walk everywhere, in a car-dominated culture, and who asks probing questions, is killed senselessly, by a speeding driver. Once his own wife betrays him, Montag goes on the run. Fun fact: Fahrenheit is often described as the first sci-fi novel to cross over from genre writing to the mainstream of American literature.
Arthur C. A Stapledonian epic in which an alien invasion is merely the prelude! The aliens, who call themselves the Overlords, and who decline to reveal their physical forms, announce that they have arrived to usher in an era of peace and prosperity for all humankind. Fast-forward five decades, and Earth truly is a peaceful and prosperous place. But some curious souls demand to know what the Overlords look like, where they come from, and what their ultimate purpose really is.
Visiting Earthmen lose a valuable scientific probe, somewhere on Mesklin, so Barlennan, an adventurous Mesklinite sea trader, is recruited to go on a dangerous voyage in order to retrieve it; they are guided in their quest by the god-like voice of the Earthmen, orbiting above them.
As the action proceeds, Clement, a high-school science teacher, rather unsubtly reminds readers of the importance of the scientific method. Father Ruiz-Sanchez, a biologist, doctor, and Jesuit priest, is one of four astronauts sent on a reconnaissance mission to the planet Lithia; the team is tasked with studying the native population and determining whether the planet is suitable for human colonization. It turns out that the Lithians, a race of high intelligent kangaroo-like reptiles, have developed a peaceful, rational society.
In fact, Ruiz-Sanchez decides that the planet is a snare, set by the Devil, in order to tempt humankind to abandon any religious framework. However, he does take a Lithian egg with him back to Earth, where humankind lives in fallout shelters and longs for a political savior…. What a mistake! Since the Cretaceous period, it seems, the Earth has existed in a neural-dampening field; when it emerges from this field, every person and animal on the planet becomes five times more intelligent.
Unintelligent people become geniuses; smart people become super-geniuses and go bonkers ; animals develop the ability to speak. Which sounds great, but it turns out that the hierarchical structures through which society functions is no longer sustainable! In the USA, unskilled workers quit their monotonous jobs; white-collar professionals reject the rat race; and animals refuse to be mastered and used as resources by humankind.
Africans rebel against colonial rule; the Chinese populace rises up against the authoritarian Communist government. The book begins with a description of a rabbit, caught in a trap, suddenly developing the ability to reason its way out — a metaphor for the invisible prison within which humankind has been trapped for millennia.
But can humankind survive this upheaval? Fun fact: First serialized in Space Science Fiction in He is hampered, in his efforts, by the contempt that Earthmen who live in the titular caves of steel — i.

Baley is also prejudiced against robots, whom Earthmen resent because they have taken away jobs from humans. So it comes as an unpleasant surprise when he is partnered with R. Fun fact: First serialized in Galaxy , October to December Soon, he becomes embroiled in an epic showdown: the forces of Faery are poised to overthrow humankind and their allies who support Law over Chaos. He and his ex-girlfriend, along with others convinced that something uncanny is going on, begin to wonder whether there is an alien invasion going on.
And if so, who can they trust? How much evidence of the impossible is required until we see the truth? Fun fact: Serialized in Colliers in Philip K. Though it has inspired more thrilling novels Stephen King is a Matheson fan and movies, I Am Legend is less an adventure than it is a novel of ideas about the psychology of social isolation , a bleak Robinsonade set in a vampire-infested Los Angeles of , with no hope of rescue , and a scientific mystery valorizing painstaking inductive reasoning.
Still, there is much to enjoy here. Neville stakes vampires by day, and by night — as the vampires howl outside his door — he attempts to unravel the cause of the plague are the vampires physically, or just psychologically transformed? Or is she something else? Are there non-feral vampires? Is he, himself, a legend? Other movie adaptations have been less entertaining. Anyone who attempts to unearth such dangerous knowledge faces punishment — up to and including being stoned to death.
Len and Esau discover that legends of Bartorstown — a thriving technological utopia — may in fact be true. So they head out, on a long journey, to find it. Traveling down the Ohio River to the Mississippi, our heroes encounter dangers and marvels… but will Bartorstown be everything they hope? Fun fact: Charlie Jane Anders, of io9. Picking up where A. During a war between the inner planets and the outer satellites, the Nomad , a merchant spaceship, is destroyed; the only survivor, a directionless loser named Gully Foyle, is cast adrift. He discovers that Earthlings once traveled the stars, only to be forced back to their planet by aliens; and once offworld, Alvin discovers civilizations and entities that beggar belief.
Will he keep going? Or return to Diaspar, as a prophet? Yes, this is The Prisoner of Zenda in space; hokey material, but Heinlein handles it very well. Fun fact: Serialized in Astounding Science Fiction and published in hardcover the same year. Premarital sex is now taboo, not to mention cursing, drunkenness, even pulp fiction. In this updating of J. Which kills off the cattle, as well. With their families in tow, John Custance and his friend, Roger Buckley, make their way across a brutal, chaotic England. It was adapted, under that title, as a British-American science fiction movie directed by Cornel Wilde.
Also, a child with your name died in that town, years ago. Why does the town drunk remember the town the way Ted does? Who are the incorporeal Wanderers haunting the town? Although he struggles to make sense of these eerie incongruities, before long Ted finds himself in the midst of a cosmic struggle stretching far beyond Virginia or even Earth.
Stranger things, indeed. The title refers to a Bible passage First Corinthians which the author would deploy again, for perhaps his best novel: A Scanner Darkly. In the near future of , nuclear fallout from World War III has eradicated all human and animal life in the Northern Hemisphere, and air currents are steadily carrying the same fate to the Southern Hemisphere.
Perhaps someone is still alive? Moira, meanwhile, copes by drinking heavily. Peter Holmes, an Australian scientist, cannot persuade his wife to believe in the impending disaster. Another member of the submarine crew, Osborne, spends all of his time driving a racecar. We will overlook, for the moment, his interest in psi and his devotion to the ideas of Dianetics. Campbell knew exactly what he wanted, and would make his authors rewrite and rewrite until he got it, and the result was a major change in the character of science fiction. Campbell ushered in what has become known as the Golden Age of science fiction, a period that saw the rise of what we recognise as hard sf.
They maintained the emphasis on hard sf that Campbell had initiated, but also encouraged a more humane and occasionally a more experimental approach. The style of science fiction that Campbell championed remained the dominant mode of science fiction until the emergence of the New Wave in the s, but let's face it, when you think about science fiction you automatically call to mind the classic stories from Campbell's Golden Age.
Gully Foyle was a hundred and seventy days dying and not yet dead when the spaceship Vorga passed him by without rescuing him. Thus starts a madcap adventure in which Foyle sets out to exact revenge on the people who left him to die. Filled with jaunting and cargo cults and super-powerful corporations and incredible new weapons and insidious rhymes and a host of strong women, this is a novel that just doesn't let go.
There's always a new invention, a new twist in the drama, a vivid scene that keeps you racing through the book. Why it tops the list: There's hardly an sf author or fan who wouldn't include this in their all-time top ten, most would probably count it, as Samuel R. Delany does, as the greatest single sf novel. It was recognised as one of the origins of the New Wave, and just as much as one of the origins of cyberpunk.
Which must make it one of the most influential sf novels ever. It's also great fun, you couldn't ask for better. For thirty years or more he dominated the genre, so that the only problem is knowing which of his works to pick. Should it be one of his brilliant short stories, such as the exploration of time paradoxes in "By his Bootstraps" or future technology in "The Roads Must Roll", or novels such as the ultimate space war novel, Starship Troopers, or the cult classic, Stranger in a Strange Land? In the end, this superb account of the revolt of the Lunar Colony probably best encapsulates the many strengths of Heinlein's writing.
The revolt of the Lunar Colony is, of course, a replay of the American War of Independence, but the quest for liberty that echoes through all of Heinlein's work never leads to an unalloyed utopia, he is a far more subtle writer than his critics might suggest. Why it's on the list: This was Heinlein's fourth Hugo Award-winning novel, and is probably the best of them. It is a carefully thought-out and utterly convincing portrait of what life on a Lunar Colony might be like and how it might revolt. And it is full of original ideas, all deftly handled.
And a lot of paper burns within this book. The job of a fireman has been reversed: instead of putting out fires, they are there to start them, to burn books that have all been outlawed in this future. But then one fireman, Montag, starts to read one of the books he is supposed to destroy. Before long, he's building up a secret horde of books, and when they are discovered he goes on the run, an enemy of the state.
Bradbury wrote this novel at a time when Senator McCarthy was in full flow, and it is a powerful statement in support of freedom and knowledge. But in fact it speaks to every single one of us who reads books. I defy you to read this novel and not shiver in dread at the thought that all our books, all the things they say to us, might be taken away. Why it's on the list: Fahrenheit won a fistful of awards, including a Retro Hugo. It has been filmed, dramatized for radio, taught as a set book in schools. In fact it's one of those books we all know whether or not we've ever read it.
It is in short one of the best and most important American novels of the s. A successful venture capitalist with billions in the bank, Mike Cohen has it all figured out. Brainocytes transform the human experience, making you smarter, faster, and more powerful. With enemies at every turn, Mike must use his newly enhanced capabilities to save his family, his friends, and ultimately, the world.
The post-war period was a great time for dystopias, and none is more powerful than Supposedly based on Orwell's wartime experiences working for the BBC, and clearly modelled on Yevgeny Zamiatin's We, this is a story of bureaucracy creeping into every aspect of our daily lives. Even at home, the television is watching you. And if you don't think the way the state wants you to think, they have ways of making you change. This is the story of Winston Smith, a small cog in the Ministry of Truth, whose job it is to go back and change old newspaper articles so that however much the state may change its position, it would appear that everything has always been the same.
Right from the start, we know that the more the state controls the further away we are from anything resembling truth. Then Winston meets Julia, and as they begin a love affair they dream of rebelling against Big Brother, but they are captured by the Thought Police and tortured so that they betray each other, and eventually recognise their love for Big Brother. It's a measure of how thoroughly the book has seeped into the popular imagination.
Indeed, it appears in the top ten of practically every list of the best books of the century. It is one of the most essential works of the imagination. While Campbell was inventing hard sf in America, science fiction in Britain was taking a very different course. Building on a tradition of scientific romance that stretched back to Mary Shelley and Richard Jeffries, a form of fiction was emerging that Brian Aldiss would call the cosy catastrophe, though the best examples were far from cosy.

Actually there are two catastrophes in the novel: a strange meteor shower, that may have been triggered by atomic weapons, renders a large portion of the population blind; at the same time, carnivorous, bio-engineered plants, triffids, menace the survivors. Bill Masen is one of the people who still has his sight, and the story follows his attempts to form a community of survivors. Why it's on the list: The story has been filmed, adapted for television and radio, even turned into a Marvel comic, and it has been a set book in schools, which makes it one of the few science fiction novels widely known even to people who never read science fiction.
That is perhaps why it remains an incredibly influential novel, not least because the word "triffid" has entered the language. Not all British science fiction followed the pattern of the cosy catastrophe, of course. Arthur C. Clarke established himself as one of the most important writers in the history of science fiction through a series of technically and scientifically accurate stories that opened up a stunning and enduring future.
GOLDEN AGE SCI-FI: – – HILOBROW
From the account of the last city on Earth a billion years in the future in The City and the Stars to the spectacular journey through the star gate in , A Space Odyssey, Clarke's gift for creating vivid yet believable futures made him one of the towering figures in science fiction. Of all his early novels, Childhood's End is the one that probably most sticks in the mind.
It tells of mysterious aliens who arrive above Earth to usher in a period of peace. At first, no humans ever see the aliens, and we eventually discover that this is because they resemble the traditional image of demons. But the Overlords are no demons, rather they provide a way for humans to join what is known as the Overmind, but this transcendence can only be achieved at a dreadful cost. Why it's on the list: Universally praised, Childhood's End became a best seller almost from the moment it was published, ad it has remained in print ever since as one of the undoubted classics of science fiction.
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. The Three Laws of Robotics are one of the most famous inventions in all of science fiction. Robots were traditionally presented as a threat to humanity, an underclass that would inevitably revolt. Asimov thought that idea was nonsense, and devised the Three Laws as a way of showing robots as sympathetic.
Naturally, he then spent most of his robot stories trying to subvert or undermine the Three Laws, but they still provided the guiding principle not just of the stories collected in I, Robot and The Rest of the Robots, but in novels like Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. One of the later robot stories, "The Bicentennial Man" which won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novelette, features a robot who becomes human, but that was the trajectory of all of his robot stories.
They are a fascinating study in characters who start out as machines but always prove themselves to be something more. Why it's on the list: Asimov's robot stories changed the game. Everyone who wrote about robots afterwards recognized the Three Laws, either explicitly or implicitly.
Even work written in opposition to Asimov, such as John Sladek's Roderick, still pays homage to the influence of Asimov's work. Still today you'll find references to asimov circuits or positronic games; even in the real world there's now a company called iRobot and a Japanese robot named Asimo. The whole enterprise of robotics, real and fictional, owes a debt of gratitude to Isaac Asimov. We often tend to slip into the notion that before the advent of writers like Ursula Le Guin and Joanna Russ, science fiction was an exclusively masculine domain; certainly in the s and 50s there are fewer prominent women in the genre than either before or since.
But there have always been women who played a prominent part in the literature. Moore is a case in point. With her very first sale, "Shambleau", in , she created one of the creepiest and most effective of all weird tales, with a story of a planetary adventurer and his encounter with a beautiful but deadly alien vampire.
She was just as adept with straight science fiction stories, such as the wonderful "No Woman Born", which tells the story of a glamorous and celebrated performer who is killed in a fire; but her brain is preserved and put into a specially-designed robot body. For the men in her life she thus becomes an object of fear, a powerful woman that they cannot control, but for the performer herself she suddenly realises that she can achieve so much more than she ever did before. Practically everything she wrote was at short story length, and as the title suggests the best of them have been brought together in this collection.
From the s through to the s, C. Moore was one of the leading genre writers who had a profound influence on the shape of weird fiction as well as "golden age" science fiction.
17 Science-Fiction Novels By Women That Are Out Of This World
Dune Chronicles. Very few straight-down-the-line science fiction novels have a life outside the genre, but Dune certainly does. It is one of a handful of works that could be named by people who never read science fiction. On the surface it's a straightforward adventure story: a young man is cheated out of his inheritance, hides out in the desert and secretly builds an army that will allow him to reclaim his rightful position.
Michael Poole finds himself in a very strange landscape—the center of the Galaxy. The Xeelee have had time to build an immense structure here, without war or interference from humans.
