Best Science Fiction Book Series

This list is for series of science fiction books - not individual books.

The Top Ten

1 The Foundation Trilogy - Isaac Asimov

One of the best science fiction series of all time. Foundation and Empire is my favourite.

2 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

A great mix of fantasy and science fiction.

3 Escape From Genopolis - T. E. Berry-Hart

A chilling world with creepy genetic experiments.

4 The Giver - Lois Lowry

I am not a big fan of science fiction. I read Asimov- rather bored. Read Verne and some other classics- bored.
The Giver was amazing, however. Emotional, chilling, beautiful. The best Apocalypse book, as well (though Hunger Games is really good as well. )
Several other science fiction books by Lois Lowry are very good, as well. Ender's Game and Artemis Fowl are pretty good, too. Otherwise, there isn't a single science fiction book I really like.

An unloving, deprived world with hardly any emotion. Scary.

5 I, Robot - Isaac Asimov

Stories about very human-like robots and all their problems.

6 Space Trilogy - C.S. Lewis

Out of the Silent Planet is the best. The technology is primitive, but, just like in The Chronicles of Narnia, there are good morals.

7 Revelation Space - Alastair Reynolds
8 Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card

Ender's Game! This list was basically an impossible decision to make since I like so many of the series on this list. Ender's Game, however, is something I can go back and read over and over and never get bored with it-it's just that good. - Element119

I love the story and it is such an interesting yet unique read.

9 Dune Chronicles - Frank Herbert

I love Dune! Reading about Paul Atreides and the mysteries of Arrakis sweeps you away to their world. Iron Maiden even did a song about the book, called To Tame A Land. - Element119

10 The Forever War - Joe Haldeman

The Contenders

11 Tripods Trilogy - John Christopher
12 Hyperion Cantos - Dan Simmons
13 The Man in the High Castle - Philip K. Dick
14 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

Very interesting and humorous series! - Element119

16 The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - Robert A. Heinlein
