Astrobiology Subgenre

Astrobiology is the compound study of life from the stars (or any place beyond the limits of the planet Earth). As you can imagine, most science fiction books will have elements of astrobiology in them, so the list below is a mixture of fiction and nonfiction about extraterrestrial entities.
