When you hear Sci-Fi, do your normally think of Arthur Conan Doyle, J.R.R. Tolkien, H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, Jules Verne, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, or George Orwell? Or do some more recent authors come to mind?
Looking for your next sci-fi must-read? We've pulled together some of the favourite science fiction novels.
