Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments It's that time again - nominations for November BOTM. Same rules as always:

1) One vote per person. Either nominate a book or "second" it. Not both.

2) No self-promotion of books

3) A nomination and a "second" will set a book to the list. Five books nominated and I'll close this thread and move to the polls.

Thanks everyone!

Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments I'm going to nominate The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. I enjoyed reading it immensely and would love to discuss it.

Tom Wright | 33 comments I'll add The Rook. It's a fun urban fantasy set in the UK's version of MIB, but with monsters instead of aliens.

Arun (arzvi) | 7 comments Always wanted to read The Darkness that comes before from'The prince of nothing' series by R.Scott Baker. Heard its one of the darkest novels.

message 5: by Michael (new)

Michael (rabidnewz) I nominate Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey.

message 6: by Erin (new)

Erin | 4 comments I'll second The Rook

message 7: by Paul (new)

Paul (paul_sff) I'm going to nominate The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It is the book I am planning on reading next, so I figured I'd throw it out there. I realize a ton of people have read it though so it probably won't be BOTM.

I read it this month, and it ended up being much better than the City of Blank Stares.

Michael (michaeljsullivan) | 140 comments Lots of great additions here already - I'd love to read Goblin Emperor...I've heard some great things about it.

message 23: by Harv (new)

Harv | 10 comments The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August, if we're still doing the nomination thing. Uncertain as to whether it qualifies as fantasy, but it doesn't seem all that science-fictiony as far as the underlying premise is concerned.

Nicole Zupich (nicolezupich) I second The Rook!
