Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

Must-Read British SF

Given Shadow’s reading list over the past couple of years, I would have thought that science fiction was moving in a strongly Brit-ward direction. However, It Doesn’t Have to be Right… feels that literary SF is still very Americocentric and is combating that by listing 20 British SF novels that everyone should read.

In addition to being written by British authors, the stories he’s chosen take place either in the UK or in futures where nations don’t exist any more. Not all are current–H.G. Wells and George Orwell make the list–but the more recent authors are solid choices.
