Time for nominations for October.

Books can not be self-published, no nominating your own work, no audio book only, must be actually available in both Europe and North America by October 1.

If you're unclear, check the book shelf. No repeats of books we've already read, series must be done in order (don't nominate book 2 first, or go from 2 to 4. 5 is right out.)

Due to some problems with numbers lately, no seconding others' choices.

Let the nominations begin

Fantasy
An Echo of Things to Come
A Madness of Angels
The Two Towers
Empire of Sand
La Belle Sauvage
Harrow the Ninth
Hard Magic
The City & the City
A Stranger in Olondria

Science Fiction
Snakeskins
Dauntless
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars
Chilling Effect
Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre
Solaris
Places in the Darkness
Parable of the Sower
TekWar
Rant

Is this fantasy? seems more like horror? Just want to double check before I add it

This book is self-published and not eligible for our BOTM, even though it's a great book

The book is tagged Fantasy as well as Science Fiction and sense the first book won our Fantasy BOTM it makes more sense, to me, for it to be under fantasy.

Vivirium | 3 comments La Belle Sauvage for fantasy please

It's a mix, mostly fantasy due to the necromancy powers.
