As you see I am pretty weak in the Sci Fi realm...

Flowers for Algernon was SF? I'm not sure I agree with that classification....

I'm so cloning this list too!

Yeah, bizarre! I didnt make the list; it seems pretty good though. It is hard to seperate the good from the bad in genre fiction...

I thought I was a sci-fi geek, I've just read "Dune" on that list ...
Do Douglas Adams (H2G2) count in sci-fi genre?

"Fahrenheit 451", "1984", "A Clockwork Orange" and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" are in my to-read list.

I will clone the list, maybe it will give me some ideas.
By the way, is the list in order 1 to 100?

A little error: "Alas, Babylon" is by Pat Frank.

I can't believe that Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, John Wyndham's The Chrysalids, Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game et al., Philip Pullmans's His Dark Materials trilogy and Monica Hughes's The Guardian of Isis, if you haven't read them I'd highly recommend giving them a try. I had a few more on the tip of my tongue, alas my mind is a little foggy right now oh well.

wheres ubik?!?!?!
