Vote for the Best Science Fiction

NPR is trying to create a list of the best 100 science fiction books. Their audience suggested thousands of titles, which they narrowed to only several hundred, on which you are invited to vote.
Scrolling through the list of great science fiction and fantasy reads below will feel like a journey back in time for some of us, a voyage of discovery for others. But novice or veteran, everyone loves a contest. So, let the voting begin!

Here's how: Everyone gets 10 votes. Select your top 10 favorite titles, and then scroll down to the bottom of the poll and click "Submit." Feel free to lobby for your favorites in the comments. We'll be back in about 10 days with the results.

Even deciding on just ten will be difficult! -via Metafilter

So true, Minnesotastan. I've read maybe twenty of them, and I picked the ten I liked best from those twenty.

On the other hand, the benefit of a poll like this is that it's given me a "suggested reading list" that should last me a long time!

The problem with polls like this is that unless you have read them all, you are not really voting for the "best of the list" but rather the best of the ones you have read.

To do this properly, they should ask people first to tick off the ones they're read, then list the best ten of those. Then the data could be compiled by adjusting upvotes per frequency of being read. Otherwise it's more a familiarity/popularity test.
