The best 100 science fiction books ever written. Via Smallest Minority.
I'm just posting the ones I've read, with a star (*) next to the ones I recommend.
7. Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley *
24. The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
31. The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester
34. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card *
38. Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey (started, couldn't finish)
49. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley *
51. 1984 by George Orwell *
52. The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyl And Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
53. Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson *
60. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess *
61. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury *

73. Puppet Masters by Robert Heinlein
84. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

98. The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton
I think Frank Herbert had one, exquisite novel in him, and Dune was it.
But I think the recommendations to read Dune have reached critical mass. Time to buy a copy.
