This month fellow Kansans James Gunn and Chris McKitterick (renowned and gifted Science Fiction writers/scholars/professors) contributed to Popular Mechanic’s recent list of the top 30 must read stories in the genre.
While not all of them are all-time classic SF must-reads (although Jim and Chris’ picks are totally spot on perfect), they are all super reads and worth checking out. You can’t go wrong with any of them. And, if for no other reason, the cover art is worth a gander since they are the original artwork from the first editions – many of which are over 50 years old. Great art and literature is timeless!
