Best Selling Science Fiction Books of All Time

Are you a science fiction fan (not that space fantasy Star Wars baloney) like I am? Then maybe you will like this super awesome infographic of the best selling Sci Fi books of all time! Ender’s Game is possibly my favorite childhood book and it is both gratifying and disturbing to see it on this list. One million copies sold since 1985 sounds like a lot, but is it? A post I wrote earlier shows thatTwilight already has sold a sickening 43 million, and Harry Potter is at a staggering 400 million. Yet Ender’s Game can only get 1 million. People don’t get out of bed for a Youtube clip with less than 1 million views. Fahrenheit 451 -one of the fathers of modern Sci Fi- a paltry 10 mil. I am a little soul crushed at the moment but I will get over it. Enjoy the list and enjoy the rest of your day. I will go sulk in a corner for a while. Stupid Twilight and it’s 43 million.
