Top Time Travel Novels

Here is the exciting fourth installment in IGP’s Top 100 Science Fiction & Fantasy Novels. This time we decided to look at time travel. I admit that we did cheat a little this month. Two stories on our list are actually short stories, but we like them, and we think you will too! Also, editor Nicki is kicking herself for putting The Time Machine on the dystopic novels list, but we think we’ve come up with an appropriate alternative.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman 8.0

Editor Nicki takes a look at Neil Gaiman’s latest children’s story about a boy named Nobody that is raised in a graveyard with ghosts for parents and a vampire for a guardian.

Top Dystopic Novels

This third installment in our Top 100 Books of Science Fiction & Fantasy looks at Dystopic novels.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard 9.0

With the Tales of Beedle the Bard my only real complaint is how short it is. With only 5 stories it is a mere teaser for most fans. JK Rowling wasn’t quite ready to let go of Harry Potter and as it turns out… neither was I.

Top Military Science Fiction Novels

The second part in our countdown of the Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels focuses on the military science fiction sub-genre.

Best Reads of Michael Crichton

With the recent passing of acclaimed author Michael Crichton, we at IGP thought we’d put together our list of Best Michael Crichton reads.

Welcome to the first installment in our top 100 science fiction and fantasy books. Each installment will include a different category’s top ten. For this first installment, we are looking at the Top Children’s Books.

Book Review: V:The Second Generation written by Kenneth Johnson 7.0

I couldn’t possibly describe just how much of an impression V made on me and my television viewing habits. While I was aware of watching science fiction at a young age, Star Trek re-runs, etc, V was the first series I was actually really into. I loved both of the miniseries and the television series.

Book Review: Wizard’s First Rule written by Terry Goodkind, 6.0

With the imminent release of the new TV series, Legend of the Seeker, based on Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series, we at IGP thought it would be a good idea to review the first book of the series, Wizard’s First Rule.

Book Review: Tigerheart written by Peter David 9.0

Paul Dear was raised on swashbuckling tales of The Boy and Anyplace, where The Boy fights pirates alongside Fiddlefix the fairy and his band of Vagabonds.
