Science fiction – find a winner

So many Science Fiction books – and I am counting Hunger Games and all that genre in the Sci Fi mix, someone will probably see fit to argue with me, but I am resilient and capable of defending my stance – so little time!

If you thought Science Fiction and Fantasy weren’t really your thing then this helpful chart might be just what you need to get started on the genre which is so hot right now.

“Last month, NPR published a great introduction, polling readers to determine the top 100 sci-fi and fantasy books of all time. Now, the design-minded geeks at SF Signal have transformed the NPR list into a handy flowchart that will help you choose the right novel for you. You can see a much larger version of the graphic here.” via Flavorwire

Sadly despite studying this chart for rather more time than I am going to admit to, I cannot find Mary Doria Russell’s The Sparrow.  It would fit, maybe over by the politics, religion, philosophy etc. section with Ursula le Guin and co.

    I’ve looked through NPR’s list a couple of times, and this is probably the most unique way of looking at it. It’s a neat way of looking at a whole bunch of books and may be useful to help you pick a book to start with to go through the list.
