Gollancz:
We've chosen 50 titles published under the Gollancz imprint over the past 50 years. Now we want you to tell us your favourites. Below are two lists; one list contains 25 Science Fiction titles and the other 25 Fantasy titles. Select one title from each list and cast your vote.

We'll announce the winning titles in September and then publish the top 5 Science Fiction and top 5 Fantasy books in a stunning collectable retro-look edition to celebrate!

Here are the 25 SF titles they have chosen: follow the link above if you want to vote for one. I have read all of them, except for Flood by Stephen Baxter, and I didn't finish Stand on Zanzibar (or Rama now I come to think of it).

A Case of Conscience by James Blish
Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan
Brasyl by Ian McDonald
The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
Dune by Frank Herbert
Fairyland by Paul McAuley
The Female Man by Joanna Russ
The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
Flood by Stephen Baxter
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
Gateway by Frederik Pohl
Hyperion by Dan Simmons
Last and First Men by Olaf Stapledon
More than Human by Theodore Sturgeon
Pavane by Keith Roberts
Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke
Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds
Ringworld by Larry Niven
Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner
Tau Zero by Poul Anderson
The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
The Separation by Christopher Priest
The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester
Yellow Blue Tibia by Adam Roberts
I would probably vote for Olaf Stapledon, because I think he is incredible. I suppose Ringworld or Dune will win. But overall this list reminds me of how much I like SF.

Thanks to dfordoom for the link.
