Today Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) twittered:
If you like making lists or arguing about them, @nprbooks lets you vote here for The Top 100 SF and Fantasy Books http://t.co/SXsHMZs #fun
NPR Books let their “audience” nominate books a month ago and constructed a top-100 list. And now it’s time to narrow it down to a top-10 list. For the next week you can join in and vote for your favourite SF and fantasy novels.
I do have to add that I’m missing some of my own favourite fantasy novels, like Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, Garth Nix’s The Abhorsen Chronicles and Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle.
I guess it’s just like Neil Gaiman says – there’s always something to argue about. Plenty of people have commented at the bottom of the NPR Books page about books missing from the list or books they feel shouldn’t even be on the list.
One thing’s for sure, it’s a great list if you’re wondering what you should read next. I’m sure there aren’t many people who’ve read them all.
Oh, and don’t forget to vote: http://t.co/SXsHMZs.
