Top 50 Sci-Fi Fantasy Books (as told by TR)

I promised a return, but have thus far not delivered. So here, for your edification and debating pleasure, is This Recording‘s list of the “100 Greatest Sci-Fi or Fantasy Novels of All Time”.

Carnavale puts “Litany of the Long Sun” at number one.

Alex, I love you most of the time, but have you lost your mind? Any list of Sci-Fi Fantasy that doesn’t have Lord of the Rings in the top 10 is just wrong.

You’ll notice there’s a whole lot of Le Guin love going on here, which is big problem for me. I’ve never found her more than slightly above mediocre, which I realize is a high crime in the world of Sci-Fi geeks. Sorry, all, I have no defense.

Debating entirely subjective lists may be nothing more than a Hornby-inspired exercise in time-wasting, but have at it. Any other ideas about what should dominate in those Top-10 spots?
