1000 Best Books @ The Guardian and beyond…

The Guardian have gone list crazy this week, attacking with gusto the 1000 best novels we all should read before we die, including a section dedicated to science fiction and fantasy. Its a great list, with some wonderful reads, and looks at genre fiction in the broadest sense including both staight-up genre works and more literary classics.

Now here is a question…as most of the featured titles are at least a few decades old, what are the titles and authors published in the last few years (lets say five) that you think might make the list when it comes around again in another twenty years or so? I have a few names in mind, I wonder if anyone can guess them?
