100 SF/F Novels Meme

Found a new meme from The World in the Satin Bag.

Here's how it works:

Grab the list from here.

Bold all the titles you have read, italicize the titles you hope to read or have seen the movie for (since many of these have been turned into movies) and try to make a distinction between the two, and just mark ones you've never heard of somehow (preferably with a parenthesis of some sort).

As an aside, I marked items with an asterisk at the beginning for those things I had never heard of.
