1) This is probably the most famous children's science fiction novel. It began a series, including other installments called A Swiftly Tilting Planet, A Wind in the Door, and An Acceptable Time.
2) Control the spice, control the universe. This book is one of the most famous sci-fi works of all time. It has been made into several movies, one memorably starring Sting in a diaper. (fine, it wasn't really a diaper, but it looked like one)
3) Jeff Winston keeps reliving portions of his life in this novel. Published in 1998 by Ken Grimwood, this book is supposed to become a movie in the next few years. (I really hope it does!)
4) This kooky sci-fi novel was made into a movie in the past couple years that starred Martin Freeman and Zooey Deschanel. This book, the first in the series, reminds space travelers of the advice: "Don't panic...and always bring a towel."
5) This book is the first in a young adult series by Patrick Ness. The Chaos Walking series follows Todd Hewitt, a young man living in another world.
6) The title city in this book by Brandon Sanderson was walled when its inhabitants started to get sick. If anyone falls ill outside the walls, they are thrown inside to die...but do they actually die?
7) Temporal displacement allows soldiers to keep fighting in wars with the Taurans in this sci-fi classic from Joe Haldeman. The main character is named Mandella.
8) This 1992 book by Connie Willis won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. In it, Kivrin Engle goes back to 14th century Oxford.
9) Alfred Bester penned this sci-fi novel in 1955. The word for traveling in this book is 'jaunting.'
10) Young kids get shipped off to Battle School in this best-known YA sci-fi book. Once there, all the geniuses fight in 'toons' and practice tactics for their eventual war with The Buggers. Orson Scott Card wrote this one and it spawned an entire series and offshoot series.
