Complete Listing of Science Fiction Books I Have Read

     This blog post is for keeping track of the science fiction books I have read from age 14 to present.

     Last Update = 1-2-2016

     Total number of science fiction (and related) books read since age fourteen = 480.

(I have not included several anthologies and many short stories. I probably forgot a few, as well. The number isn't really accurate, since many of these books contain more than one novel. I counted the omnibus volumes as one unit each, so the number read is a tad higher. Also, I have a lot of magazines with short stories and I'm not sure how to count them, so I didn't add them.)

(I have also included some fantasy novels and non-genre books by science fiction authors.)
