FWIW, These are the 10 I voted for in each category for the 20th Century:

SF

1. Dune
2. Stranger in a Strange Land
3. The Mote in God's Eye
4. Ringworld
5. Lord of Light
6. Startide Rising
7. Ender's Game
8. The Foundation Trilogy
10. 1984

FANTASY

1. LOTR
2. The Broken Sword (Poul Anderson)
3. A Game of Thrones
4. Nine Princes in Amber
5. Glory Road (Robert A. Heinlein)
6. The Dying Earth
7. The Dragon and the George (Gordon R. Dickson)
8. The Once and Future King (T.H. White)
9. The Princess Bride
10. The Last Unicorn

I supplied authors for those books I don't see discussed much anymore. The rules required that you vote for no more than 10 and it was very difficult to stop there. I hated leaving off Neuromancer, The Man in High Castle, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, The Forever War, The Martian Chronicles, Three Hearts and Three Lions, The Swords of Lankhmar, The Incomplete Enchanter, The Crystal Cave, The Narnia series, A Wrinkle in Time, and on and on and on. I only participated in the 20th Century categories as my reading became much more lmited in the 21st Century due to the demands of adulthood.

Anyway, it's my list. Your mileage may vary.
