20 Best Science Fiction Books Of The Decade - Books - io9
"After much mulling and culling, we've come up with our list of the twenty best books of the decade. The list is weighted towards science fiction, but does have healthy doses of fantasy and horror. And a few surprises." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
I wouldn't call Harry Potter specifically science-fiction though. More fantasy. - Kol Tregaskes
Harry Potter is a fantasy book, without any doubt. - Stefania Cabitza
Yeah, I don't think it's based on science. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Well, it does say "healthy doses of fantasy and horror." - Jandy
I definitely wouldn't have added Perdido Street Station to that list. Ugh. That book. Natually, I love the inclusion of Vernor Vinge and Iain M. Banks. Still, I would think that almost anything by Alastair Reynolds or Kim Stanley Robinson would have made the list. Hell, even the Peter F. Hamilton. Then again, I detest fantasy and hate that it's lumped in with sci-fi. - Anika
Gibson's 'pattern recognition' books were good, but I have a hard time seeing them on the top-20 for the last decade. - Matt M (inactive)
I've read a lot of these books, but I defintely don't agree with many of the selections. I re-read Look to Windward recently, and it definitely doesn't hold up. In fact, of the lot, I think I'd only agree with the Ted Chiang selection. The others are either fantasies, or not representative of the author's best work. - Piaw Na
I haven't read many there to be honest but if they're leaning heavily towards sci-fi then I've got to agree with the admiral and say I'm disappointed that Alastair Reynolds hasn't featured. - Mark H
Books are just cool! :-) - Mathew A. Koeneker
Up for WWZ :) - diego morelli
