Let nominating commence for November 2016!

- Nominations will be open for 24 hours and during that time we will take in as many nominations as possible.
- After 24 hours, 8 books from each genre will be chosen at random from the selection.
- Only ONE nomination per person (EITHER sci-fi OR fantasy)
- No books nominated last month may be re-nominated for November, instead you must wait until December to nominate them again. A book counts as "nominated" when it made it to the polls. If it was suggested, but not picked for the polls, it can be entered again. You can see the polls here
- If books are part of a series, they must be the first, unless the group has already read the previous book(s)
- No authors nominating their own works
- No self-published or ebook only books
- Here are our previous group reads if you're unsure!
- Book nominations may be seconded in place of a suggestion, but this will count as your choice for the month. Seconded books will receive an additional chance of being selected in the randomisation process.

THIS POST WAS CREATED AT 20:45 GMT, Saturday 8th October. Therefore the nominations will remain up until 20:45 GMT, Sunday 9th October.

Ryan Infernal Devices by K.W. Jeter for fantasy (or very soft sci-fi). This guy coined the term 'steampunk'. Also, Lel gave it five stars!

Not to be confused with the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare, which I am not nominating.
