If you’re a fan of Canadian literature, you’ll want to stick around. Plus, what’s better than Canadian science fiction?
Canada has a rich history of producing imaginative and thought-provoking sci-fi works. Today I’m here to share my top three picks that you should add to your reading list right away.
Canadian Science Fiction Books To Add To Your Reading List
1. “Neuromancer” by William Gibson
First up is a classic that redefined the cyberpunk genre – “Neuromancer” by William Gibson. This groundbreaking novel, first published in 1984, not only won the Nebula and Hugo Awards but also the Philip K. Dick Award.
Set in a dystopian future, it introduces us to a world where data thieves, cybernetic enhancements, and sprawling metropolises are the norm. Gibson’s vision of the future is not only compelling but eerily prescient in today’s digitized world. If you’re looking for a book that blends technological innovation with gripping narrative, “Neuromancer” is a must-read.
2. “Aetherbound” by E.K. Johnston
Next on the list is “Aetherbound” by E.K. Johnston, a newer entrant in the Canadian sci-fi scene. This novel takes us on an interstellar journey filled with adventure, self-discovery, and the essence of human resilience.
Johnston’s storytelling is immersive, creating a universe that is both vast and intimately detailed. If you enjoy character-driven narratives set against the backdrop of space exploration, “Aetherbound” is your next great read.
3. “Devil On My Back” by Monica Hughes
Last, but certainly not least, is “Devil On My Back” by Monica Hughes. This book is a hidden gem in the Canadian sci-fi landscape.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world where knowledge is power, literally carried on the backs of the privileged, it’s a compelling tale about the quest for knowledge and freedom. Hughes’s ability to weave societal commentary into a fast-paced, engaging story is truly remarkable.
