Best books

It’s nice to see some of my favorite books of 2009 showing up on some of the “best books” lists that proliferate at this time of year.

  • Joe Abercrombie’s Best Served Cold made Amazon UK’s list of the best sci-fi/fantasy of 2009.  Monza Murcatto is one of my favorite heroines in a long time.  She’s stubborn, mean, ruthless, cold-blooded — in short, she’s a real bitch (or, almost equivalently, she’s a real Joe Abercrombie character).  She’s also more than that, though, which makes her one of my favorites.
  • Also nice to see Robin Hobb getting a mention in the same list.  I’ve loved most of her books, but her last series was so bad I could only get through 1.5 books of it.  I hope she’s redeemed herself with her latest book.
  • And, wow, China Mieville’s The City & the City is #8 on Amazon’s Top 100 Editor’s Picks of 2009.  In any genre.  That’s cool!  Mieville’s book is keeping good company on that list — the #1 book won the National Book Award and the #3 book won the Booker Prize.

There is one glaring oversight that I’ve noticed.  Jim Butcher’s Codex Alera series is fantastic, and deserves to be making these lists.
