My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Best Classic Sci Fi

The results are in!

Like most things these days, my chores and errand to roughly thirty times longer than I expected (and I wasn't even on existential-dread-fighting drugs today!), so I'm just going to drop these results and run. I'm hoping to get an early access post done tomorrow for my infinitely patient Patrons. And if I'm just on fire (I won't be), I'll get a little something done for here as well.

Thank you to SO MANY who voted. I will get the permanent results plastered up this weekend.

  1. Wow. Interesting. I, too, would put Dune at the top of the list. Foundation trilogy, The Dispossessed would make my list. I'd include Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and the Known-Earth series by Larry Niven (especially Ringworld and The Long-Arm of Gil Hamilton). I was never fond of Philip K. Dick. I might include something from Ray Bradbury--probably the Illustrated Man (especially the film version!) or Fahrenheit 451.. And on movies--A Boy and His Dog (Harlan Ellison)--fabulous.
