So as you may be aware, NPR crowd-sourced a list of the 100 greatest sci-fi and fantasy novels. As you might also be aware, 100 novels is a lot of novels. Chances are you’ve read or at least heard of some of them before, but let’s say you want to pick a new one, something you aren’t familiar with, something that will be an exciting surprise, but more importantly, something you’ll actually enjoy.
Well you don’t have to choose arbitrarily based on title or cover art any more; SF Signal has created an exhaustive, infinitely useful flowchart that’ll help you find the pick that’s right for you. Also, it’s funny, which is always a plus.
