Genre: Fantasy

Winner: “Stiletto: A Novel” by Daniel O’Malley. Little, Brown, a division of Hachette Book Group.

Magical agents prop up the English government, while their bio-engineered foes prosper in Europe’s Low Countries.

Genre: Science Fiction

Winner: “Arkwright” by Allen Steele. Tor, a Tom Doherty Associates book.

With the Arkwright Foundation, golden age science fiction author Nathan Arkwright secures his, and his family’s, legacy. Inheriting his dream to construct and launch the starship Galactic, Arkwright’s descendants face a project bigger than themselves: building a hopeful future in a world reluctant to let go of past prejudices.

Short List:
“Behind the Throne” by K.B. Wagers. Orbit, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.
“Crosstalk” by Connie Willis. Del Rey, an imprint of Random House.
