More than 60,000 people voted in NPR's Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy survey, and now that they've revealed which novels made the list—and the all-important order in which they appear—you all know what that means. Let the debate begin!

Here are the top 10:

1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, by J.R.R. Tolkien

2. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams

3. Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card

4. The Dune Chronicles, by Frank Herbert

5. A Song of Ice and Fire Series, by George R. R. Martin

6. 1984, by George Orwell

7. Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

8. The Foundation Trilogy, by Isaac Asimov

9. Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley

10. American Gods, by Neil Gaiman

What do you think? Did those more than 60,000 readers get it right? And if not, who should've topped the list?

You can find the full 100 over at NPR.
