In early January Tor.com had a reader’s poll of the ten best fantasy and science fiction novels of the last decade. I mentioned it here. Well, the good people at the publisher/web site have been tallying up the votes, and the results are in!
The Tor.com reader’s poll says these are the top ten fantasy & science fiction novels 2000-2010. The site also has write-ups and interesting data they found while compiling the votes, which they will be rolling out in the nearish future.
I really think it’s worth while to head over to Tor’s site, so I’m reluctant to post the poll results here, so I’ll just mention, in no order, and no vote-count, the top ten: American Gods – Neil Gaiman; Anathem – Neal Stephenson; Blindsight – Peter Watts; Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell – Susana Clarke; Kushiel’s Dart – Jacqueline Carey; Mistborn – Brandon Sanderson; The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss; Old Man’s War – John Scalzi; Perdido Street Station – China Mieville; A Storm of Swords – George R.R. Martin.
Of these, do you have a favorite? I’ve read and enjoyed a few of the authors, though none of these particular works.
