Anarchism and science fiction

A reading and viewing list

"the finest list of anarchist science fiction available"

Margaret Killjoy, ed. (2009) Mythmakers & Lawbreakers. Anarchist writers on fiction






Ian Bone (2009) 'Introduction' to his edition of Fawcett's Hartmann the Anarchist


This listing will never be complete, I'm glad to say. My own research dates mainly from the 1970s and 1980s, though I've added to it from numerous other sources. There's now also a page listing large numbers of possible additions, which I haven't yet had the time to read.


The list is no longer restricted to written sf. I have now begun to include films that may be of interest to anarchists.


There's probably a degree of in-built bias against anarcho-capitalism, free-market anarchism, and the libertarian right, though some works with this orientation are included. None have been deliberately excluded.

In the list, an beside a title means an item's particularly recommended by me. See my hotlist, for these recommendations only. At present this only includes books, as there aren't yet a great number of films.

The bibliography is almost entirely restricted to works referred to in the text, with exceptions where seen as significant. Fuller bibliographies have been archived by the anarchysf Internet mailing list:,

Corrections, and suggestions for future additions, can be made to: Ben Beck.
