Literature instructors, librarians, and readers looking to familiarize themselves with the science fiction canon should check out this resource provided by the Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction. Here, visitors will find an extensive list of books and their authors representing "the foundational and important novels of science fiction," ranging from early works of speculative fiction such as Edwin A. Abbot's Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (1884) to more recent publications like G. Willow Wilson's Alif the Unseen (2013) and Daryl Gregory's Afterparty (2014). Organized alphabetically by author, the list provides a brief description of the books mentioned and their significance, as well as links to where they can be purchased online. In addition to this hearty list, visitors may also want to check out James Gunn's essay "Libraries in Science Fiction," which can be found via a link in the list's introduction. Founded in 1982 by its namesake and based at the University of Kansas, the Gunn Center is renowned as one of the foremost institutions for science fiction.
