Amazon editors pick the 20 best fantasy & sci-fi novels of 2016

It's that all important time of the year when the "best-of" or "most-anticipated" lists start popping up. I was honored that Age of Myth was nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award (my 5th), and today I learned of another list. I'm pleased to say Age of Myth was also picked by Amazon as one of the 20 best fantasy and science fiction novels of 2016. It's pretty amazing company to be in, and I'm both honored and humbled. Here are the books:


For those that prefer text rather than pictures, here are the books along with some data about their release date, rating, and number of reviews.

If you're like me, these lists are great for growing the TBR lists.  And Christmas is just around the corner, so if you see something you like, tell Santa. Who knows, he might just stuff your stocking with some good reads.
