75 Banned Science Fiction and Fantasy Books

Celebrate the freedom to read! Were you aware that the books on this list have been banned and/or challenged? Or that in some cases authors and readers have been persecuted because of the writings that they produce, circulate, or read? Unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints must be available to all, allowing each of us to develop our own conclusions and opinions. Banned book lists all too often focus on "great literature" -- but science fiction and fantasy have had enormous impacts on literature and the way we think, and are MORE likely to be banned than many other categories.
