Locus Online has just released Jeff VanderMeer’s 2007: the Best of the Year
Congrats to clients who got notice as worthy novels:
* “Jay Lake’s inventive Mainspring”
* “the uncompromising A Companion to Wolves by Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette”
Also, in the “first” novel category:
* “Ekaterina Sedia’s The Secret History of Moscow — not, technically, her first novel, but her first to gain wide attention — provided unusual European magic realism while hinting that the field may have a new rising star.”
And many thanks to Jeff for giving me a lovely list of new books to read too….
I’m not famous, and I don’t have a zillion hits or a newspaper column, but I read about a hundred YA and MG a year and I just posted my Fave Fifteen of 2007. Not sure if any of your clients are on the list, but there’s some good book recommendations!
Hurray for Jay, for the Sarahs, and for Ekaterina!
