Twenty Core Speculative Fiction Mysteries Every True SF Fan Should Have On Their Shelves

As with the previous core lists, here are twenty Speculative Fiction Mysteries chosen entirely on the basis of merit and significance to the field [1]. No implication is intended that these are the only twenty books you should consider [2].

Persons unfamiliar with one or two of the works, congratulations! You’re one of today’s Ten Thousand!

1: There are two filtering rules:

  • Only one work per author per list
  • Any given work can appear on only one list

2: NO IMPLICATION IS INTENDED THAT THESE ARE THE ONLY TWENTY BOOKS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER [3].

3: See footnote two.



Please note: comments will be read-only for the next week or two; Livefyre has ceased service, and we are doing some site maintenance.
