Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Your 2016 Bests
« on: December 20, 2016, 01:32:21 PM »
We now only have only 11 days left in the year and we're all likely wrapping up our reading (aside from Arry who probably still has 10 books to read) so I think it's safe to put up a Bests topic for 2016 and what you're looking forward to in 2017.  I know the main site will eventually (maybe) have lists for this year and next but I your all opinions tend to matter more to my reading selection anyways.

1. What was your favorite book that you read in 2016 (released in any year)?
2. What was your favorite book that you read that was released in 2016?
3. What was your favorite 2016 debut?
4. What book are you looking forward to the most in 2017?

I know several people do not keep up to date on newer books so you may not have an answer for #2 and #3 but I figure we should list those anyways.  This list: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/100366.Can_t_Wait_Sci_Fi_Fantasy_of_2017 seems to be an ok resource for new books next year although I'm not sure how accurate it is (i.e. I doubt Doors of Stone or Winds of Winter will be released).

Fantasy Movies, Comic Books & Video Games / Westworld (Spoilers)

I feel like there is enough of us watching to warrant a standalone Westworld thread.  Spoilers for the newest episodes so if you're not caught up either don't read further or do so at your own risk.

With the Sidekick battle now in the Semifinals it's time to open up Ancillary Character (I'm open for calling this something else if anyone has better ideas) nominees.  This battle we're looking for the characters, who while they may not have a leading role in a book/series, help provide the color in our favorite books/series.

1. Contest is open to characters in a series or standalone.
2. Nominations should include character name, series/book, and author.
3. You can nominate multiple characters from a series/book.
4. Please limit the nominations to about 15-20 characters max.

This is the final character battle so look at the below list and make sure the character you are nominating did not belong in one of the previous battles.

Favourite Protagonist
Favourite Sidekick/Partner
Favourite Villain/Antagonist
Favourite Secondary/Ancillary Character

Nominations are planned to be open until at least November 4th.
