  1. You’ve left off a Novel…

  2. Fixed – thanks Michael!

  3. As an aside, I’m dissapointed to see The Wannoshay Cycle isn’t on this list. Grrr.

  4. There is some good stuff on this list. Personally, I quite enjoyed the short story “Titanium Mike Saves the Day” by David D. Levine. He is an awesome writer and, if I was a member of the SFWA, his story would be getting my vote.

    I wrote a short review of “Titanium Mike Saves the Day” on my blog if anyone is interested.

    I am also a big fan of Gene Wolfe, so I intend to check out his novella too.

    Thanks for the list!
