New York Times 100 Notable Books of the Year Predictably Lacking Sci-fi and Fantasy
It is really no surprise that The New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2005 left off every sci-fi and fantasy novel that came out besides Half-Blood Prince, but one could hope that they could broaden their pretentious minds a little! There were tons of great books out this year by notable writers like:
Neil Gaiman: Anansi Boys
Robin Hobb: Shaman's Crossing
Doglas Preston and Lincoln Child:Dance of Death
Octavia Butler: Fledgling
and, of course,
Orson Scott Card: Shadow of the Giant and Magic Street
Just to name a few. This isn't counting the novels by lesser known and first time authors like Brandon Sanderson's Elantris and many others.
Jump on the Times forum and push the sci-fi fantasy. It is time these stuffed shirts had some fun with their reading!
