Welcome to the Best of SF

Welcome to the NEW and improved BestScienceFictionBooks.com, a sister site to BestFantasyBooks.com

 

It's a jungle out there in the world of Science Fiction, and like the Fantasy book genre, there's a lot of crap to sift through. It's our goal to do our best to aid in your search for the best Science Fiction novels. Some of these choices on the lists are well known, genre defining classics and others are a bit more obscure, and still others are brand new releases. But every one of these science fiction books is a rip-roaring read. We've devoted a lot of time and resources here to make this site your one stop shop to finding the best of the best science fiction.

 

With this brand new website update, we've spent over a year developing a new layout, adding features, and bring you the same technology that powers our other sister site,. The result is THE most comprehensive science fiction book recommendations site on the web. We have dedicated detailed best lists (the most comprehensive you'll find anywhere on the web), active science fiction forums, a sci-fi blog, and much MORE.

 

We guarantee you won't leave our site without at least a couple good book recommendations.

July 2015

We've been working on a huge site update for over a year and we are finally proud reveal the result, the brand new Best Science Fiction Books. This site has been around in some form form for about two years, but it remained in an incomplete state. Well...no more. The site is now done. We've taken the exact SAME features found on our sister site, BestFantasyBooks.com, and imported them over into this site. The end result is there is a lot of information here to help you find the best books.

There's a TON of new features now -- a brand new custom layout, social features that show how your peers have rated a book, the ability to submit and similar book recommendations, the ability to see if books have won major awards, and more.

We've also been hard at working setting up our new forums and our blog.

And just for this brand new site, we've updated some of the major lists. Over the next couple days we will be releasing some BRAND new lists and a new, more detailed, highly updated Top 25 Best Science Fiction List.

A few months ago, we added over 7 brand new best lists as well.
