Oh, hey, look: the results of the Tor.com readers poll of the best science fiction and fantasy novels of the last decade (actually eleven years, but who’s counting?) are out, and Old Man’s War showed up on the final list. Yay! Want to see where on the list it landed? Want to see what else is on the list? Click that link above.
But wait, there’s more! Tor is also running a little contest for you to win all ten finalists on the list, and there will be four winners. Here’s how to get in on that action.
Finally, there will be an appreciation of each of the listing novels, written by authors and/or fans, one posted each day. Today’s is an appreciation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, written by Patrick Rothfuss. As it happens, I am the person who wrote the appreciation of Patrick Rothfuss’ placing book, The Name of the Wind, which will post on March 7, and the appreciation of OMW, written by Ken MacLeod, shows up on the 8th. Reading these and the other appreciations will be fun, I assure you.
Thanks to those of you who voted for OMW on this poll. It’s nice to have one’s work appreciated.
