We've given you a bunch of options — from 1912 to 1999, with stops along the way for mutant lizards, monkeys, and The Matrix — so now it's time to choose the Best Year in Scifi... Ever.
We're winding up our survey of the best year in scifi with a Great Depression year that transformed the genre forever with original monster classics like Frankenstein and Dracula, plus a horror novel from Nobel laureate William Faulkner.
We're getting to the end of our survey, but 1954 is a ridiculously robust year, with Ray Bradbury delivering Fahrenheit 451, Richard Matheson offering I Am Legend, and Japan unleashing Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
No question: 1982 must be the best year in science fiction history. These 365 days gave birth to Blade Runner, Star Trek II, ET, Tron and The Thing, to name just a few.
Today's candidate for the best 365 days of scifi is 1968, a year that spawned masterpieces like 2001 and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and such enduring tales as Night of the Living Dead and Planet of the Apes.
Today, we look at the year that gave us Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and "Ender's Game" — does 1977 deserve to be crowned the Best Year of Science Fiction Ever?
Today, we look at the year that gave us works by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Hugo Gernsback — does 1912 deserve to be crowned the Best Year of Science Fiction Ever?
