The Best Science Fiction Stories Ever Written

Welcome to BestScienceFictionStories.com

Hi, thanks for visiting my site. I love reading science fiction short stories, and I’m guessing you do too.

A Short and Quick Synopsis of This Site:

  1. I Find and read great science fiction short stories…
  2. I then write short reviews telling you what they are about…
  3. Finally I link to the stories so you can read them too! (Nice huh?)

Here are a few good examples to get you started:

A More Detailed Explanation of This Site:

I have found that it is sometimes difficult to find really good science fiction stories to read, so I started this web site to share with you all the really great science fiction short stories I have tracked down and had the pleasure of reading. Hopefully you will find it helpful as you search for great science fiction stories too.

BestScienceFictionStories.com is the result of three things that really frustrated me: Having to read several crappy stories just to find one really good one, trying to decide which short story to read without knowing anything about it except the title, and hearing about a good short story but not knowing where to find it. My frustrations eventually led me to write down and keep track of the good short stories I read, so I could find them again. I started sharing my list with friends and family, and finally decided that there are probably some other people out there that would like this information too. Viola!

So, if you share my love of science fiction short stories – or my frustrations with trying to find good ones – then this site is for you.

Enjoy!
