Classic Sci-Fi Books That Still Resonate Today


View Linked Books

A collection of the best in classic science fiction that still exerts huge influences of modern works.

As a huge fan of Blade Runner, Do Androids Dream occupies a place in my heart for being such a weird yet timely image of the future. As a tech-head with drawers full of unidentifiable cables, the idea of 'kipple' (tech-junk with a seemingly supernatural ability to multiply) has always stuck in my head as being particularly apt.

Lem's Cyberiad is one of the funniest books I've ever read, and the endlessly inventive & hilarious wordplay is all the more impressive for it being a translation.
