Livie Is it just me, or does it seem like Artemis Fowl doesn't belong here... ? Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems pretty popular. I've heard a lot of people talk about it. Also, Neil Gaiman and Phillip K. Dick are pretty popular, too


message 2: by Michele (new)

Michele The Enchanted is an awesome book but it is not science fiction.


message 3: by M (new)

M Scott Love me some Hunger Games, but by what measure is this gem hidden?


message 4: by Mitchell (last edited Jan 03, 2015 10:41PM) (new)

Mitchell There should be a ratings maximum for books on this list - say 5,000. But also there should be a year minimum - say at least 10 years. And to avoid author spam say a ratings minimum of at least 100 ratings unless the book is at least 30 years old. But at that point you might as well just vote on a different list like say

All science fiction with 1,000 to 9,999 ratings
All science fiction with 100 to 999 ratings
Best Science Fiction on Goodreads with less than 100 ratings
