Amazon has posted their editors’ Top 10 Science Fiction & Fantasy Books for 2005:

  1. The Algebraist by Iain M. Banks
  2. Accelerando by Charles Stross
  3. Looking for Jake : Stories by China Mieville
  4. Olympos by Dan Simmons
  5. Magic Street by Orson Scott Card
  6. Anansi Boys : A Novel by Neil Gaiman
  7. Knife of Dreams (The Wheel of Time, Book 11) by Robert Jordan
  8. A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4) by George R. R. Martin
  9. The Narrows by Alexander Irvine
  10. Woken Furies (Takeshi Kovacs Novels) by Richard K. Morgan

As usual, I wonder about the process of picking the titles. Not that these books are not worthy – they are. I did notice that the titles are all recent releases (between June 28 and November 8). What, was the first half of 2005 a crappy year for sf/f? Bah! Still, I love lists…
