Looking for Australian YA Science Fiction rather than Australian YA Fantasy? Here are some top titles with some well-known books next to some you may be unaware of.

  1. Displaced Person – Lee Harding. What happens when you start to vanish along with everyone else? Identity, sense of self, sense of place. An Australian classic.
  2. Deucalion – Brian Caswell. Colonialism, intolerance, understanding, in an SF scenario. Thought-provoking.
  3. The Broken Wheel – Kerry Greenwood. Yes, that Kerry Greenwood. Post apocalyptic tribalism. Gritty.
  4. Singing the Dog Star Blues – Alison Goodman. Time travel, aliens, and some funky harmonica playing. Cool.
  5. Burn Bright – Marianne de Pierres. A Gothic, dark dystopia. Stylish.
  6. Ink, Inc – Jack Heath. Want to see how a single technology can change the world? Clever.
  7. Tomorrow When the War Began – John Marsden. Yes, it’s SF. Australia hasn’t been invaded, has it? Iconic.
  8. Black Glass – Meg Mundell. Mass surveillance, authoritarian government, young rebels. Juicy.
  9. Omega – Christine Harris. In space, which way does death lie? Wondrous.
  10. Eye to Eye – Catherine Jinks. Machines can think. Can they feel? Challenging.

And note how I resisted adding my own 10 Futures, Machine Wars, Blackout, The Mask of Caliban or any others? See my Novels pages for details :-).
