The Best-Selling Sci-Fi Books of All Time


Just a few minutes ago, I was told that I am a confusing person. Upon asking for clarification, I was informed that the reason for the statement was that I love sci-fi and fantasy, but I am not a Discworld fan. I am still thinking of why this is the case, as I have attempted to read several Discworld books but never finished one.

While I let that thought steep in my mind, I found myself going through an infographic detailing the best-selling sci-fi books of all time. Let’s do a quick rundown.

The Best-Selling Sci-Fi Books of All Time

  1. Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein
  2. The Lensman Series by EE “Doc” Smith
  3. A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke
  4. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  5. The Foundation Series by Isaac Asimov
  6. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
  7. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  8. Dune by Frank Herbert
  9. Neuromancer by William Gibson
  10. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick

  12. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

The infographics gives a bit more information about the books, in case you have not read them or heard about them. ((Don’t be embarrassed. I am actually questioning my reading habits right now, as I have read only a small percentage of this list!)) It also gives numbers as to how successful the books have been, hence their place on this list.
