1. Ben Beck’s Anarchism and Science Fiction Reading List
Perhaps the best of the bunch. Comprehensive and regularly updated. Definitely worth a look.

2. io9′s 10 Greatest Libertarian Science Fiction Stories  Even with the L-word in the title, still a strong list all the same. Recommended for beginners to the genre, and includes all the names you’d expect.

3. Mythmakers & Lawbreakers Anarchist Fiction Writers  From Margaret Killjoy’s excellent book, published by AK Press, a 26 page appendix listing a bunch of anarchist fiction writers (including bibliographies). Also listed are works of fiction that feature anarchist history, anarchist societies, anarchist characters, and even anarchist villains. Definitely worth downloading or bookmarking for those that have read most of the better known anarchist SF works and want to delve a little deeper.

4. Dan Clore’s Essential Science Fiction and Fantasy for Libertarians  I hesitate to put this one up, as it isn’t an “anarchist” list, but a libertarian one. That said, most of these picks are not controversial however you paint your own particular brand of anarchism, and Clore does a good job of highlighting a few neglected classics.

5. Left-wing SFF Listopia on Goodreads  Good, simple list of lefty and some anarchist SF. Perhaps the easiest to browse and check out some of the unfamiliar titles. Another one for the newcomer.

6. Anarchist Studies Network SFF Reading List  A pretty limited list, but does include Moorcock and MacLeod, as well as having some other bibliographical data too.

7. Leftbanks Books Staff Picks  Not entirely anarchist, but a good — if short — selection with reviews of each staff pick.
