Amazon’s Best SFF of 2013

SFFAmazon have released a list of books that they consider to be the top 20 SFF books of 2013. Although I imagine Fantasy-Faction’s Best of 2013 list will be fairly different due to our focus on fantasy – especially epic/high fantasy – I think that if you are a genre-fiction fan – with no preference on Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy or Weird-Fiction, etc – this would be a pretty awesome reading list for you to get cracking with for 2014.

Amazon have placed their list in bestselling order, where a book isn’t released yet it means that the pre-order figure has been taken:
