Paul (paul_sff) | 70 comments I'm pretty happy with the amount of books in the best novel being nominated. More votes for the top 10 books than I thought.


message 3: by Alistair (new)

Alistair | 54 comments Of the ones nominated The Fifth Season was the "best", but the nominees weren't the "best" 3 or 4.
For me, The Traitor Baru Cormorant, Planetfall, A Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, should have joined The Fifth Season in the best novel category. That would have been a really hard choice. :)
