This week, due to–ahem–unconventional nominations over on the Facebook group, we have, for the first time ever in Discover Sci-Fi history, a top 10 poll with eleven options! Not wanting to leave out the strongest nomination which is, not exactly aligned with the parameters of “romantic relationship” we had in mind, we are stretching our own rules a bit. Nevertheless! The readers and fans have spoken! Whether or not they are of sound mind is to be determined in the comments below!

So, based on the combined nominations here on the Discover Sci-Fi blog and the Facebook group, here are the top choices for best romance in literary science fiction. This week you'll only be able to choose one, so make it count!

Click here to see the full list of nominations on the blog, or here to see the full list of nominations on the Facebook group.
