Finalists for the top Science Fiction and Fantasy titles

At NPR.  Includes:

Animal Farm, by George Orwell

The Baroque Cycle, by Neal Stephenson

A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess

The Dune Chronicles, by Frank Herbert

Slaughterhouse-Five, by Kurt Vonnegut

9. The Colour of Magic -- Terry Pratchett 46% (46)

10. Microserfs -- Douglas Coupland 43% (44)

20. Trouble with Lichen - John Wyndham 21% (19)
