Amazon's Best of 2007 for SF and Fantasy
|Is Amazon the best site on the internet or the evil bane of brick and mortar bookstores?|
Their list of the top ten SF and Fantasy books of the year is actually tremendous in many respects, and I recommend you check it out.
It features 4 or 5 choices that will probably make my own top ten list, and as such I can only marvel at the savvy, charm, and undoubted good looks of Amazon's crack team of editors.
1. The Terror by Dan Simmons
2. Brasyl by Ian McDonald
3. Territory by Emma Bull
4. The Traitor by Michael Cisco
5. Spaceman Blues: A Lovesong by Brian Francis Slattery
6. Shelter by Susan Palwick
7. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
8. Thirteen (Black Man) by Richard Morgan
9. Tin House: Fantastic Women by Aimee Bender
10. The Coyote Road edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling
I will be reviewing a number of these books shortly. (But please feel free to purchase numbers 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 right away. )
