Help Us Choose The Best Fantasy Books of 2017!
2017 was a heck of a year wasn’t it? Unforgettable! One that we’ll remember for a long-
No, no. Please don’t cry.
We know this year has tried to beat us all to hell, but there must have been some good in it right?
Of course we’re right. But it was certainly not thanks to politics or the economy or peace on Earth and goodwill toward men. Maybe that’ll be in 2018?
All right, all right, fine. But there’s always hope. 😛 Anyway, let’s get back to 2017.
This year might have been hard to handle, but it did give us something amazing: A whole year’s worth of new books to read! 😀 Debuts, sequels, additions to series, finales to series, and standalones that came out in fantasy, science fiction, horror, steampunk, urban fantasy, historical fantasy, grimdark, etc. Overall it was a fantastic year for SFF and readers who love it!
So rather than dwell on the darker side of 2017 let’s instead showcase its highlights! We want you, our loyal Factioners, to help us pick this year’s best fantasy books! You can nominate up to five. They can be traditionally published or self-published from any subgenre of fantasy. You can simply post your list, or you can give us a short reason why your choices are the greatest. All we ask is that you only nominate books you have actually read, and that you don’t nominate yourself. We will tally up the lists, have a roundtable chat with our reviewers, and post our Best of 2017 before the end of the year.
But wait! Back to that hope I was talking about earlier! We’d also like you to tell us what three fantasy novels you are looking forward to getting your hands on next year! Obviously, you don’t have to have read these, but please, as above, don’t nominate your own work. Our Most Anticipated for 2018 list will go up either before the end of 2017 or the beginning of 2018.
Let’s end this year on a happy note and fill each other’s hearts with cheer and to-be-read piles with literary gems! Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
