Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works

Science-fiction & fantasy literature: a critical list with discussions.

Welcome to the Great Science-Fiction & Fantasy Works web site!

You have apparently come to this page from a link on a search engine or another site. If this is your first visit here, I much recommend that you take a few minutes to look over the introductory material accessible via the red “Introductory” navigation block just below the pictures. An understanding of the purposes and principles of organization of this site will, I hope and believe, much augment your experience here, for this page and in general. You can simply click this link to get at the site front page, which, unsurprisingly, is the best place to start. Thank you for visiting.
Search, or just roll your cursor over the colored boxes farther below.
Click the “X” above to dismiss the Search results.

You are here:  Home  »  Books  »  Other Books ( = this page)


Site navigation: place your cursor over a block below to see the pages list for that block.

What Sorts of Books Are Listed Here

The chief function of this site is to list good science-fiction and fantasy authors, and the good science-fiction and fantasy books that those authors have written. All those authors and all those books are gathered up in numerous meticulous lists easily accessible from virtually any page of this site.

But here and there, between this and that, various other books have been mentioned (and links to detail pages on them provided). Such occasional mentions and links are scattered pretty widely about this site, and a return visitor seeking a dimly remembered particular mention might have a tough time finding it again. I have thus, for convenience, gathered all the odds and ends up and repeated them on this one page.
