28 SFF Books Which Lack a Political or Serious Message

In no particular order here are 28 SFF books which lack a political or serious message. This sentence is ironic. You should still read these books. Why 28? I dunno. Sounds catchy. I only picked stuff prior to 1990 so it wouldn’t be recent novels. I tried to pick stuff that would be well-known, award-winning/nominated or had a deep impact in the field.
