The fine folks over at did just that when they created an informative and witty flow chart of NPR’s user voted list of the Top 100 Science-Fiction, Fantasy Books (which we have been remiss in covering previously).

While you may disagree with the ranking order of the books on NPR’s list, most of your favorites are bound be on there somewhere. And one of the beauties of the flow chart is that the ranked order does not matter – each book is simply connected to the others based on its content. Check out the original ranked list here, and the flow chart post here.  If you prefer an interactive version that asks you questions and guides you to a book, there’s one of those too.  Now go, and get reading.
