Very glad I don’t have to vote for this year’s World Fantasy Awards! Here’s the Best Novels slate:
- Katherine Addison, The Goblin Emperor (Tor Books)
- Robert Jackson Bennett, City of Stairs (Broadway Books/Jo Fletcher Books)
- David Mitchell, The Bone Clocks (Random House/Sceptre UK)
- Jeff VanderMeer, Area X: The Southern Reach Trilogy (Farrar, Straus and Giroux Originals)
- Jo Walton, My Real Children (Tor Books US/Corsair UK)
I’ve only read two of those, the first and last, but I’m damned if I could choose between them!
