Atlas Shrugged Appears on Top 50 Novels for Socialists

Popular fantasy and science fiction writer China Miéville has recently published an online guide to socialist fantasy literature entitled Fifty Fantasy & Science Fiction Works That Socialists Should Read. Why would this be of interest to Rand admirers? Amusingly enough, Atlas Shrugged appears on the list, though it is described in less-than-favorable terms:

Ayn Rand?Atlas Shrugged (1957)
Know your enemy. This panoply of portentous Nietzcheanism lite has had a huge influence on American SF. Rand was an obsessive ?objectivist? (libertarian pro-capitalist individualist) whose hatred of socialism and any form of ?collectivism? is visible in this important an influential?though vile and ponderous?novel.
