    1. On that basis, how is Redshirts SF?  Presumably because those were the two categories they best fitted?  Certainly, I’d have said that neither of them were really appropriate for where they are, but where else would you put them?

  1. Railsea was IT for me this year. Except for the terribly mediocre ending, it was a tremendous book. In addition, I cannot think of a world that would make a cooler game than Railsea.

  2. Up against Terry Pratchett and China Miéville?  Blimey!  If you measure yourself by your competition…

  3. I’ve read maybe four of those, and own about ten. Stupid depression.

    The Drowning Girl is /excellent/.
