Vote in the Tor.com 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards

What were the best science fiction/fantasy stories you read this past year? Or the best comics? Or the best covers?

Forget about “the best,” really, what new releases in 2011 did you enjoy the most?

Whatever those selections may be, now is your chance to vote for them in the Tor.com 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards! From now until 11:59 PM Friday, January 20th, we’re encouraging Tor.com readers (and SFF fans in general) to vote for their favorites in the following four categories.

  • Best Novel
  • Best Short Fiction
  • Best Comic
  • Best Book Cover

How to Vote: All votes are write-ins. You can vote for as many titles, stories, and covers released as you want in the comment thread of this post.


Eligibility: The Tor.com Readers’ Choice Awards (or The Stubbies, for short) are more about gauging fan enjoyment of the genre than they are about picking a single winner, so the eligibility guidelines for what can be voted on are pretty simple and relatively wide open.

  • Best Novel: Must have been published in 2011, doesn’t matter where.
  • Best Short Fiction: Same as Best Novel, except for stories that are under 40,000 words.
  • Best Comic: Any comic, single issue, strip, or collection - online and/or off, put out in 2011. [Note: This category was originally limited to just Graphic Novel collections.]
  • Best Book Cover: Must be a book cover, as you’re taking design and typography into account here along with the art. Standalone art (like that which adorns Tor.com’s original fiction) is often pretty pretty pretty, but not eligible.

Wait. What Came Out This Year?: We’ve put together some Google Doc spreadsheets to remind you of the past year’s releases. These are reminders only, not recommendations! If you’d like to vote for something not included in these lists, please do so in the comments — we will count all eligible write-in votes.

We’re also slowly gathering in some cover galleries for your perusal. Like the novel and short fiction lists, these are partial lists mostly meant to jog the memory.


Voting, Winners, Deadlines, etc.: Voting is open between 9 AM Eastern Standard Time, Wednesday, January 11 and 11:59 PM, Friday, January 20. We’ll be posting regular running tallies of the top-voted titles so you can keep track of the action. (Bookmark the Readers’ Choice Awards series index and they’ll show up there consistently.) Winners will be announced once the votes are all tallied and double-checked, at which point we’ll also reveal just what those winners are getting! (If you heard a distant cackle at the end of that sentence, you are definitely on the right track.)

Curious as to the origins of these awards? We did a monstrous Best of the Decade poll last year, with lots of great statistics. (And eventually, an April Fool’s joke that is itself an eligible nominee in the short fiction category!)

Ready? Vote away!

Inheritance by Christopher Paloni was a wonderful book to read (best novel) it really finished the series nicely.

Of all the books I've read this past year, I'd have to narrow it down to the novels puiblished by Messrs. Martin, Sanderson and Butcher (yes, I know, all mainstream fantasy writers, what can I say, I'm an unashamed fanboy of their works.) Narrowing down the list further, I find that while "A Dance with Dragons" and "Ghost Story" were great reads and technically better written than "Alloy of Law," I found the most enjoyment from reading the latest entry into Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series. So, for me, based off of how much I enjoyed the book, "Alloy of Law" is the best novel of 2011 with "A Dance wih Dragons" and "Ghost Story" a close second and third. Some of those other stories on the recommendation list may be better (some of them sound quite intriguing), but as college classes, work and raising a five-year old autistic boy have stolen most of my time away from me (and rightly so), I only have so much time to read-and my favorite series come first before exploring new options.

As for short fiction, well, I've rarely dabbled with reading short fiction so that's not really a voting option for me. Read too many graphic novels of late and can't recall which were published in 2011 other than the Wheel of Time's Eye of the World first volume collection, which was quite good (if manga counted, I would vote hands down for Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 26- once again, one of my favorite series). So yeah, this has grown to be a sizable post so I'll shut up now...

I read Dance With Dragons and Alloy of Law and while they were good, Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare was breathlessly good writing. I wish they would stop marketing books to teens just to get them to read.

If only one of those choice were allowed, it'd be a really hard choice between Ready Player One and The Wise Man's Fear...with TWMF edging out for the win in the end. Overall, a pretty good year for genre fiction, I'd say.

I've read a lot of good books this year - both old and new - but three 2011 releases stand out before the rest in my mind.

First, Stephen Erikson's The Crippled God ranks in as my favorite novel of the year. It doesn't work as a standalone, but it's by far the best close to a massive scale and long-running fantasy epic I've ever seen. Also, I cried. A lot. I'm man enough to admit that!

Second goes to Brandon Sanderson's Alloy of Law, which while lacking the depth of The Crippled God, had some really fun characters and a very exciting plot. It may have been the novel equivalent of a Summer blockbuster, but it was a very good one all the same.

Third goes to Brent Weeks' The Black Prism, which seems an exceptional start to a new series for him. He's keenly subverted a lot of genre tropes in interesting ways while straying from the grimdark that pervaded his Night Angel trilogy . . . and probably has the best written and most humorous example of pubescent adolescence I've seen in epic fantasy.

Unfortunately, I can't say much about covers, as I wasn't paying much attention to them. And I haven't read any comics or short stories that were released with the exception of one comic in particular . . .

Batman Odyssey, you get my comic vote a thousand times over. Starting with a naked Bruce Wayne telling the reader the story of him telling Robin a story about his start as a vigilante, none of which makes sense, it's fun in the way only a train wreck can be. This makes Adam West's take on the character look high-brow at times, and I can't help but revel in the sharp contrast to DC's popularized dark take on the character seen everywhere else.

Yes, they're all established authors with big followings, but they're *good*. I liked Dances with Dragons a lot, but I don't know if I'd put it up there in the best of the year category. I want to vote for N.K. Jemisin's latest in her awesome Inheritance trilogy, but I haven't read it yet... damn. And Way of Kings came out in 2010? I'm behind the times, apparently.

@Lastyear: It is possible that some of my readers came here and one of the earlier voters had a typo that one or two others cut and pasted to save time in the posting (passing along the misspelling in the process). I have just made the information available as to what book and short story of mine qualify.

I just wanted to make this comment as there is no "padding" going on. The information of what titles are eligible and the opening of the voting has been made available, that's all.

I hope you try my stuff out sometime so I don't remain an "unkown author" to you, LOL. My readers are a really great bunch and very supportive.

I'll go with The Children of the Sky, by Vernor Vinge, and for short feature, The Dala Horse by Michael Swanwick, from Tor.com.
I would vote for the Foglio's new Girl Genius novel, which I very much enjoyed, but that is more of a version of their older graphic novels in a new media, not really a new work.
I am surprised that Fuzzy Nation has gotten so many votes, since that isn't exactly an original story--unless, of course, H. Beam Piper gets his due for coming up with the original version.

So far, DC's new Batman, Swamp Thing, and Blue Beetle have been really good. Oh, and Fullmetal Alchemist technically finished up in '10 but they were still importing the last few volumes in '11, so I guess Arakawa-san deserves a spot on my list. Megatokyo's been pretty good too, even if it's updating at a snail's pace.

Best Novel: The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie

Sanderson was OK, Martin was below his standard, and I refuse to start another long epic fantasy (Rothfuss) before it's done.

Abercrombie continues to write strong, self-contained stories that exist within a continuous world. A much better experience than waiting for five years to see if Jon Snow dies, lives, reincarnates as a wolf or is zombiefied (only in fantasy could there be that many alternates to a stabbing cliffhanger).

Best novel: The All-Pro by Scott Sigler.
He fuses science, sports and fiction and as a reader I never wanted to put it down. I know that's a typical response to a good book so let me elaborate: no chapters ended with a put down or end with a sense of closure. I constantly said to myself that I needed to read more to see what happens to Quentin Barnes and the Ionath Krackens!!!!! I bleed orange and black thanks to Scott Sigler. He brings you onto their world and not only do you root for the characters but they have true real life meaning. His other books are great too. And they're not all the same which gives him originality in everything he writes. This book is however his best because he fit a web of stories in this book that all have substance.

Ps he contacts you via twitter and fb when you write to him which makes him even more the MAN

Best Novel - The Seventh Throne by Stephen Zimmer. One of the best cross-genre novels I've ever read.

Best Short Story - Erra and the Seven by Janet Morris and Chris Morris. Found in the 13th volume of the Heroes in Hell series ("Lawyers in Hell"), this story is by far my favorite in the volume.

Best Comic - Dr. McNinja by Christopher Hastings. Best webcomic out there, narrowly defeating Girl Genius.

Best Book Cover - Vampire Empire - Book Two: The Rift Walker. Cover by Chris McGrath. It's not every day that a cover can tell a story so easily. This one does it.

Best Novel: Towers of Midnight by Brandon Sanderson and the late Robert Jordan.

I've loved the Wheel of Time series for years and years and was deeply touched by Robert Jordan's passing. Brandon's work on the final three books of the series has been nothing short of amazing; he has truly lived up to the pressure of following such a great writer, pieced together tons of notes and personal talks regarding plot points and such, in a way that stays true to the previous books, and turned out a final product that both solid in content and embodies exactly what fans have come to love and miss about the Wheel of Time.

Ready Player One - Ernest Cline: This book makes my all-time top 10, no way it's not number 1 with a bullet here
Wise Man's Fear - Patrick Rothfuss: He rocks from the Delta to the DMZ

I have to give all my votes to the incredible people at Seventh Star Press. Stephen Zimmer is always incredible, and his novel The Seventh Throne is his best yet. More kudos to Matthew Perry for the artwork for that book. The art is unique, and it really drew me into Stephen's books. Also out this year by Stephen is a short story called "An Island Soujourn" - another awesome piece. (I like his short fiction a thousand times more than his fiction; I'd read any short piece he ever writes.)

Even if the short was a ruse its opening sentence is too wonderful not to get my vote. I will always remember it next to the opening tracking shot of Touch of Evil.

The Shadow War of the Night Dragons, Book One: The Dead City by John Scalzi is for me an excelent candidate for Best Short Fiction. His 152 word opening sentence alone is a work of art. The piece is a short satrical parody of everything I hate in fantasy fiction which is why it gets my vote!

The cover art is indeed spectacular and let's the reader know that when they delve into this book that they will be thrilled beyond compare.

The Wise Man's Fear, Patrick Rothfuss

Just discovered Rothfuss this year! After reading his 2 books he instantly became one of my top 5 authors, along with the likes of Jim Butcher, Brandon Sanderson, Preston/Child, and Jeffery Deaver.

P.S. Reading his book is also a great way to work out. Read 3 chapters while holding it one hand than switch hands every three chapters. *Anyone who has read it knows what I mean.*

My favorite sci-fi/fantasy picks of the year:

Best novel AND cover: The Seventh Throne by Stephen Zimmer; cover art by Matthew Perry.

This book is really one of the best I've read in a while. I'm a big fan of Zimmer's detailed prose and beautiful language that's never pretentious. And Matthew Perry's covers and illustrations highlight Zimmer's work perfectly.

Best Comic:
- Derek Kirk Kim and illustrated by Les McClaine - Tune
(http://www.tunecomic.com/2010/12/10/tune-part01-pg001/)
I don't know how well known this is, but more people should give this web-comic a try. It's an excellent "sci-fi slice-of-life romantic comedy adventure of interdimensional proportions," and truly great fun, especially for fans of SF and fantasy.

I also considered The Wise Man's Fear, A Dance with Dragons and The Soul Mirror for best novel, and All Men of Genious for best cover. I guess in the end I voted for Among Others and Deathless (cover) not so much because they were better than these others, but more unique.

For comic, I've gotta vote for Dark Swan/Storm Born - Rachel Mead. Only one I've seen better than the adaptations of George RR Martin's works.

Then I've gotta jump on the Steven Zimmer wagon, too. Was turned on to him by my sister.
Novel - Seventh Throne
Cover Art - Seventh Throne/Matthew Perry
Short Story - An Island Soujourn

1045. Lizzie Lynn
Zimmer sure has a following on here!
My daughter kept pestering me to read his books. First I told her no (hello, they're big enough to use as door stops!), but I finally gave in.
Gotta give my vote for The Seventh Throne. And the cover art really grabs me, too, so kudos to Matthew Perry for that.

As for short stories, I like his shorts even more than his novels, so I guess this is another vote cast for An Island Soujourn.

Don't read comics, so no votes there.

Partial to local authors, there were many to choose among. John Lowrie's Dancing with eternity is my choice for best novel. The plot and characters are so well developed I didn't want the book to end and I couldn't put it down. This is the best sci-fi book I've ever read. Precisely because Lowrie scientifically and humanly addresses the ethical challenges our world is grappling with today. Sounds heavy, but I found it quite humorous too. And it gave me hope for the future. Can't wait for the next book!

My favorite sf/fantasy novel of the year was Martha Wells' The Cloud Roads, sharp and witty and never goes where you expect it to go.
For short fiction, for me it has been the year of K. J. Parker and Jeffrey Ford:
K. J. Parker
A Small Price to Pay for Birdsong (Subterranean online)
Blue and Gold (Subterranean novella)
A Room with a View (Subterranean: Tales of Dark Fantasy 2)
Jeffrey Ford
The Double of Your Double is not My Double (Eclipse 4)
Sit the Dead (Teeth) (Incredibly funny and scary at the same time)

I was originally born in Denver, but now I live in Lexington, Ky. That was until I discovered Mr. Stephen Zimmer's brilliantly spun novels. Now I live in heaven's sweet cradle of ecstacy, at least when I read Mr. Stephen Zimmer's breath-gulping words of divine power and prestige. So without further adieu, please let me respectfully insert THE SEVENTH THRONE into the best novel and best cover categories. Even the paper weight its exquisite, the font is deliciously and preternaturally prophetic. I doubt Stephen Zimmer is reading this comment while sitting in his basement apartment off Tates Creek near Man O'War, but in the event that he is, let me just say, "You, my liege, have true class."

Best Cover Art:
I haven't yet read any of these yet,
The Darkest Part of the Woods this one really screams at me and it might be a good read.
Legion I would have gravitated to this because it would remind of the Exorcist
The Kingdom of Gods I don't know I like it
Surface Detail it's those eyes I'd grab that book and go straight to the back cover to read what the book was about.

I can't really say that the cover of The All Pro would grab my attention, but then I'm not into football and my eyes to skip right past it so my reaction when I saw it on the best cover list was "what?" But then to each their own. If you love it go for it.

Best Novel: "Dancing with Eternity" by John Patrick Lowrie

The reasons are quite simple: this book made me understand questions about existence, time and space through various perspectives in light but solid ideas. I've recomended it to friends, quoted it various times, and I plan to read it again and again, just to keep it fresh in my memory. It's a good companion book
