Unbound Worlds 100 Best SF Books

Type: Preset list created by lorax

Description: Refreshingly high ratio of recent books and books by women, rather than just the same old Asimov and Heinlein that have been on lists like this for fifty years. (Don't worry, traditionalists, they're here with one book each.) The original list, with descriptions, is at https://www.unboundworlds.com/2018/08/100-best-sci-fi-books/
