A Late Entry
The 2009 SF Site Editors’ Poll – which I vote in – has just been published. What is particularly interesting about the SF Site poll is that it has a corresponding Readers’ Poll. So, for example, The City & The City by China Mieville tops the readers’ poll but is beaten into second by Dust Of Dreams by Steve Erickson in the editors’ poll (which doesn’t even feature on the readers’ list). In contrast, last year Anathem by Neal Stephenson topped both editors’ and readers’ polls and Erickson’s previous Malzan novel, Toll The Hounds, was similarly placed at fourth and fifth respectively.
