Other people posting lists

Power Liberal has a list of the top 20 geek novels. Check it out if you're, you know, a geek. (Hey, why link to the original when you can link to someone you know?)


I got 13 out of 20. Some of these are pretty dated though. And where is the geek bible, the sacred canon of geek: LOTR?

LOTR isn't SciFi, it's fantasy. Does that matter.

I think they're using a pretty tight definition of geek. LOTR would make the nerd top 20 tho.

I like the post Hammer left on the other site better... Vonnegut fits this list way better than LOTR. And I got 5- that's pretty good for a girl, right?

It's a very tight definition of geek. And not much "hard" SF either. I spend way too much time on various geek lit boards, and one thing is very clear - they read both SF and fantasy. And they will argue to the death over their opinions on it. I must go now, someone's probably flaming Robert Jordon on one of my boards and I gotta add some gasoline.

It reminds me of the quote about debates within university departments--The battles we so vicious because the stakes were so low.

I'll remember that the next time you launch into your next Kirk vs. Picard tirade, or Alien vs. Aliens, or Beatles vs. Stones...

I'm with Mrs. Bahaha. "Cat's Cradle" should take the place of one of Stephenson's.
