THE DEBATE IS ON!
Space opera is a sub-genre of science fiction literature that emphasizes space warfare, melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, chivalric romance, and risk-taking. Set mainly or entirely in outer space, it usually involves conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities, futuristic weapons, and other sophisticated technology. The term has no relation to music, but is instead a play on the terms “soap opera” and “horse opera”, the latter of which was coined during the 1930s to indicate clichéd and formulaic Western movies.
This week we want your votes and submissions to determine which Space Opera book series deserve to be considered best of all time.
Next week we'll move the top 10 to a final round to determine their rankings from 10 to 1.
Weigh in on the poll below (feel free to add your own suggestions) and then duke it out in the comments!
