  1. Hmmm!

    I’m kinda glad about The Wicked King, because I really liked book 1 of that trilogy. Haven’t read this one yet!

    I’m also glad that This is How You Lose the Time War did so well in the rankings.

    I haven’t read any of the winners yet — gotta get busy!

  2. Not to take anything away from Blake Crouch, but Mark Lawrence’s “One Word Kill” is the first of a three-book series that also focuses on time travel. And Dungeons & Dragons. And friends.

    He released all three books in the series this year. I’m not sure if any single book in the series will make in on my nomination slate, but the series is definitely going on my ballot.

    Regards,
    Dann

  3. Passing note – the SF winner is in sans-serif and the Fantasy winner is in serif…

    (Also yay that This Is How You Lose The Time War did so well. It’s been years since I’ve been forcing a book on people so often, although I admit that it helps that it is so short…)
