Best Science Fiction Book Series

This list is for series of science fiction books - not individual books.
The Top Ten
1 Dune Chronicles - Frank Herbert

It is amazing. They could have added so many ideas, but Frank died. I have a possible idea for the final chapter, completely different than Brian Herbert's, featuring made-up characters. But anyhoo, Dune rules and all other books SUCK.

Dune has six entries besides what might have been a one-track adventure. There are actually a lot of options that open and release freedom to the reader, in my opinion.

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.

2 The Foundation Trilogy - Isaac Asimov

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

3 Unwind - Neal Shusterman
4 Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card

I found the first Ender's Game Author's Definitive Edition, which I thought had become a misplaced item. The Hugo winner is still in my grasp and is worth another read. It is a fine science fiction novel to have on the shelves or in a bookcase.

Orson Scott Card is a great writer of our times, and his work is definitely worth more than another glance. I am glad these books are around. It has been an awesome summer so far, finding what is nice again, which feels pretty good!

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.

5 The Giver - Lois Lowry

I am not a big fan of science fiction. I read Asimov and was rather bored. I also read Verne and some other classics, and found them boring as well.

However, The Giver was amazing. It was emotional, chilling, and beautiful. It is the best apocalypse book as well, though The Hunger Games is really good too.

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.

6 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

Very interesting and humorous series!

7 Incarceron - Catherine Fisher
8 Sapphique - Catherine Fisher
9 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

Friendly literature with a plot about crime in eight or more novels. Can get used to that!

A great mix of fantasy and science fiction.

10 Unwholly - Neal Shusterman
The Contenders
11 I, Robot - Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov has done a great job lately in modernizing the Robot franchise. I actually read the entire Robot Dreams. It does well for the segment it is printed with, and in a beautifully intelligent way.

Good job to the Robot franchise community. Foundation has its merits but does not seem as charming or as attention-grabbing. Anyway, cool stuff and I hope to read more of it!

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

12 The Dark Tower - Stephen King
13 Unsouled - Neal Shusterman
14 Undivided - Neal Shusterman
15 Divergent - Veronica Roth
16 The Man in the High Castle - Philip K. Dick
17 The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
18 Escape From Genopolis - T. E. Berry-Hart

A chilling world with creepy genetic experiments.

19 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.

20 Revelation Space - Alastair Reynolds
21 Hyperion Cantos - Dan Simmons
22 The Forever War - Joe Haldeman
23 Unbound - Neal Shusterman
24 Tripods Trilogy - John Christopher
25 The Book of the New Sun - Gene Wolfe
