Note of 6/23/2010: This note originally appeared on April 10, 2008 and now contains, thanks to the suggestions of many people, much more than 20 books.

Sales (be high low) have nothing to do with the good workmanship of the texts, so that there are the same well-known books below and others that are not so good. Forget, again, of the film (s): the book is a "scientific explanation" of a classic figure of horror literature, but above all a great parable about the "other", the alien being to us that defines us (in which we can become).

The best of Latin American science fiction, anthology of Bernard Goorden and A. E. Vogt.
The clear things: you put a book by Robert Silverberg on your list, I make tantrum, lollipop and mimiqui ... As I said above, the idea of â€‹â€‹the list was not to be exhaustive, but thinking about the question I propose this for you and all the other readers of this note: if you miss a book, why not use this comment space to recommend it? Now, the new generations may prefer other books, I don't know, and as they say in my town: in mothers tastes are broken ...
If anyone wants these (and other) Silverberg books in words pdf version, let me know and I will gladly bring them to the comfort of their homes.

But I take your challenge of citing at least 5 novels that can be read and enjoyed by anyone, no matter how far away from the friqui militancy:
I will see what books I have and possibly I will take the word Ricardo. It's funny, I've always considered myself a voracious reader, but I haven't read any of the proposed novels; although I have the Bioy Casares top sci fi audiobooks home, and Ubik is something that has been buzzing in my ears recently.

Orwell's 1984 could good sci fi audiobooks enter the genre is, rather, political fiction (political satire, allegory, and all those words that define it)? And as for graphic novels, I liked The Caste of Metabarons.
I do not know if what Alberto says about the exhaustion of the CF is due in large part to the fact that scientific subjects that looked like fantasies have come true, even the possibility of time travel with superstring theory and the search for theory that can reconcile Einstein's Theory of Relativity with that of the quantum mechanics of BÃ¶hr, Heisenberg, Planck, and so on.
