Futurism.com has created this intriguing infographic called Top 5 Most Influential Science Fiction Writers and it’s hard to argue with the writers included on the list.

Note the key word here is “influential” rather than ‘best’ or ‘favorite.’ Those points could be argued by fans of Robert Heinlein, Philip Dick and other essential authors of sci-fi.

At best, this chart serves to remind us of the contributions of these writers and has us pulling some of these books off the shelf for a re-read.
