Best Science Fiction Novels

My All-Time Favorite Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Xenofiction, and Post-Apocalyptic Novels and Series

It was really hard to figure out what, exactly, this category of books was. In fact, I didn’t figure it out, preferring instead to name them all in one ridiculous and exhaustive title. On your blog, you can be much tidier…

The Hyperion Cantos: Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion, Endymion, The Rise of Endymion / Dan Simmons
