Today on The Tattooed Book Geek I have something a little bit different for you all. I was recently contacted by Isabel Cabrera of Global English Editing about sharing their infographic for The 16 Best Science Fiction Books of All Time and I agreed.
Introduction by Isabel Cabrera.
If the grind of daily life is getting to you, there’s no better escape than reading a science fiction book.
Whether the story focuses on aliens, technology, time travel, space exploration, or other unknown creatures and worlds, all science fiction shares the theme of a leap into the unknown.
While science fiction is a great form of escapism, it can also teach us a lot about our own humanity and the fragile world we live in.
This is because these stories usually exist in settings some way connected to our current human experience.
Some of the best science fiction stories of the past 200 years explore how emotional and primal human beings fare in the face of powerful scientific advances they create.
From The Martian Chronicles exploring interplanetary immigration, to Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep asking what really makes us human, to The War of The Worlds introducing the concept of extraterrestrial invasion, science fiction takes the human experience and adds rocket boosters.
But, how do you know which science fiction books to read? If you’re new to the genre, where do you start?
