Fifty Fantasy & Science Fiction Works That Socialists Should Read

This is a list from 2002 by China Miéville, but I happened to stumble across it once again and was struck by how few of these books I've read. Given that I am a socialist and a science fiction nut, one would think I'd have devoured quite a few, even accounting for my general dislike of fantasy. Of the fifty, I've only read Ursula LeGuin's The Dispossessed, Ken Macleod's The Star Fraction, Toni Morrison's Beloved, Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, though I've at least read other books by some of the authors listed.

In any case, I think I've got some books to hunt down.
