Good list, John- I'd love to read about what makes them great gateway scifi books or to see a little bit of the plot summary but, this is a good list to give people some ideas of where to start. Thanks for sharing :)

That's chapter 8 of Hartwell's book Age of Wonders: Exploring the World of Science Fiction.

So, is this your list of introductory books to SciFi or theirs?

This list was compiled by David G. Hartwell in his book, as described in this list's description. I had posted about this list a couple of years ago at SF Signal.

OK, great- thanks for clearing that up! I think it'd be more helpful to have what your personal recommendations are to get people into SciFi. I'm completely clueless about SciFi so, it'd be way cool to have some kind of intro or summary to each title. That's just my two cents, though :)
