About half of these books aren’t science fiction, they’re fantasy. What you’ve done is the equivalent of claiming you’re doing the top 10 mystery books, and putting Pride and Prejudice on it because, like Sherlock Holmes, it happens in England.
What great science fiction books could have been on this list if their spots hadn’t been taken by fantasy ones? Why not do two lists? If you like fantasy, which I do, I’d like to see your top 10 fantasy books.
This list serves neither genre well.
If you can’t tell the difference between scifi and fantasy, you should not write about either. This “article” was not beneficial in any way.
