  1. Does seem to be a bit early to be posting the ‘best of’ lists.  I like to at least wait until December to start seeing these.   I am excited to see great reviews for How to Live in a Science Fictional Universe (a book I picked up at the store recently) and Dream of Perpetual Motion (a book whose cover beckons for me to buy it every time I am in the store).

    Amazon gets books 3-4 months ahead of publication. So do I–pretty much everything. Thousands of books. There’s very little that slips through the cracks. I do mop-up end of the year for anything that is missed in SF-F, though, and then get another crack at it doing a best-of for Locus Online. jv

  3. This is the best of Science fiction for this year?  Good lord…

  4. Not read any of them… not even heard of most of them…
