So glad Among Others made the list. Also, I now have a considerably-larger Amazon wishlist, blast it.
One thing, though...I get that this is Tor's (and, by extension, MacMillan's) blog, but I think you could have made the fact that you're only listing "your" titles a little clearer. One of the greatest things about this blog, to me, is precisely the way it doesn't feel like marketing but like a place where SF fans can hang out and discuss the books they love.
Just my two cents.
