Twelve of the best 1960s science fiction novels

At io9, Annalee Newitz tagged twelve 1960s science fiction novels everyone should read, including:
Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle (1962)

Dick was a master of bizarro dystopias, and this alternate history is one of his most incredible. The Axis has won World War II, and we follow several characters through a fragmented, occupied America as they try to get their lives on track — and try to figure out the mystery of an alternate history novel about a world where the Allies won World War II...
Read about another book on the list.

The Man in the High Castle is among Jeff Somers's five best books that busted genre conventions.
