The Best Science Fiction, Fantasy Books? You Tell Us : NPR
To help you chart any fantastic voyages you might take this vacation season, NPR Books is focusing our annual summer readers' poll on science fiction and fantasy. Share your favorite titles: Your votes will decide the titles that make our top-100 list of the best "SF/F" titles ever written.

if the poll proved to have no other worth, it did spawn some curiousity when seeing the same titles and authors repeatedly nominated by others- i was absolutely cluelesss about many of the authors- never heard of them let alone read them

was 50 miles from home but knew i'd have a free hour or so while in minneapolis- coincidentally i was within a mile or so of uncle hugo's sci-fi bookstore and had stuffed a book list in my pocket- the 5 purchases i made i found were primarily book one of series- wow this could get scary :) if you don't hear from me in a while send out the native scouts ............

as ron white would say "it's a good day tater" ;)

oh yeah the titles ?

"enders game" by orson scott card- just starting this one !
"the name of the wind" by patrick rothfuss
"neuromancer" by william gibson
"storm front" by jim butcher
"the man in the high castle" by philip k. dick somehow over the years this one escaped me- time to correct that

Neuromancer is one of my all-time favorites.
Sadly, Gibson's latest stuff is just not of that caliber.
I have for years thought the guy ought to do something with spaceships and ray guns.
