Interesting list, here...

Top 10 science fiction novelists of the '00s -- so far

Good to see recognition for some Brits at genre's forefront again, right?

You mean Scots, surely? :twisted:

Wow, that's interesting, that so many of them are Scots, as you say. And on the wider (Brits issue - Britain isn't a country, as we know, but a collection of nations), it's long been recognised that the USA tended to lead on the short story form in science fiction, and the Europe has been better at the novel. While I'm sure that's a sweeping, unverifiable claim, the top 10 list seems to back the notion up.

Not a top ten novelists site but a chance to vote for your favourite SF book or film for New Scientist's 'Science fiction special: The future of a genre'.

Quoting from the site
Science fiction is all about the future, but what does the future hold for science fiction?

With the death earlier this year of Arthur C Clarke, the last of science fiction's Golden Age giants, and with mainstream literature becoming increasingly speculative and futuristic, is science fiction as a genre dying out?

We plan to explore this question in a special edition of New Scientist out on 15 November – as well as reviewing the best new science fiction books and talking to some of the world's leading writers.

But to kick things off, we want you to tell us about your favourite science fiction.

I think we'd all argue with that first sentence but maybe the special edition will be less dogmatic.

Amusing to note NS staff not immune to familiar love-it or hate-it reactions to certain SF movies (especially Dune).
