BEST 250 ADVENTURES!
May 1, 2020
Since 2014, HILOBROW’s Josh Glenn has endeavored to identify, read or re-read, and offer a few helpful notes on the best 10 adventure novels, comics, and story collections published during each year of the 20th century (from 1904–2003, that is, according to HILOBROW’s eccentric/correct periodization scheme). Since we’re all stuck at home, flattening the curve, he’s put together a list of his Top 25 favorites from each decade of the past century.
This page supersedes Josh’s 2013 list of The 200 Greatest Adventures (1804–1983), which has received hundreds of thousands of visits but is no longer an accurate reflection of his opinion. There are 200 titles listed on the brand-new Best 250 page, so far; dating from 1904–1983. (Plus: 25 titles from the Nineteenth Century, for context.) This summer, he’ll add 25 titles from the Eighties; early next year, he’ll add 25 titles from the Nineties.
So much to read/listen to, on this list! Hope it helps…
