NPR recently provided the results of a top-100 list of the best science fiction and fantasy ever written. Naturally, and sadly, it was a very uneducated/American-centric list which poorly captured the entire sphere of science fiction and fantasy, choosing instead to just list popular American names with few contenders from outside the country. It’s not a great list, but it’ll have to do for the moment.
Even more frustrating was the entire lack of usability it provided for those wanting to enter into the dangerous and large world of science fiction and fantasy fiction: there were no blurbs, categories or context.
Thankfully, the fine folks over at SF Signal have compiled the below flow chart to help you get the most out of a relatively mediocre list, with some fun questions and actual flow to the chart.
You can also check out a similar flowchart that they did for sci-fi series on NetFlix.
