I've read two of them--Flowers for Algernon and The Left Hand of Darkness. I've never heard of any of the others.

I'm not sure why Left Hand Of Darkness is on this list. It's a really excellent book, but it's not about science - it's about an ambassador. No science 'gets done' in it.

_The Dispossessed_ was on a previous Twenty Core, or it probably would have been used here.

Gwyneth Jones' Life (added not as a corrective but as a suggestion to interested readers)

5/20 - way above my usual standard.

Another addendum for interested readers: Lem's 'His Master's Voice', one of the great 'first contact' novels.

I reread 'Omnilingual' just a few months back; aside from the inevitable advances in our knowledge of Mars, it's held up extremely well.

Arnason's recent Mammoths of the Great Plains is also excellent, and about scientists.

2/20. That's pathetic. Clearly I have no idea what's going on in mainstream SF.
