Popular Science Fiction on GoodReads with between 10000 and 24999 ratings

The difference between Science Fiction and Fantasy is arbitrary but it should be clear enough for this list. Looking for Science Fiction with between 10k and 25k ratings on goodreads. There is a separate list for science fiction with 25 to 50k and more than 50k ratings - unfortunately science fiction is still under rated (low number of ratings NOT low number of stars on ratings) on goodreads, hence this list.

Greg Sorry, newbie question, why does it say "graduated" after each one

Sure - the concept of this list and others like it is that when a book gets past the maximum ratings (for this list that means 25,000 ratings), it gets removed from this list and placed on the next. And this is done by a list maintainer who is also a librarian.

And this is done by hand. And any individual can only vote for at most 100 books - so that means some books graduate late.

The easiest way to help with these lists is to vote for as many of the books as you can - especially ones with only one vote. Some people are not comfortable doing that, since it may imply that you've read and liked all the books you voted for.
