The Best Novels of 2008

According to SFX readers:

  1. Making Money by Terry Pratchett
  2. Flood by Stephen Baxter
  3. Matter by Iain M. Banks
  4. The Last Theorem by Arthur C. Clarke and Frederik Pohl
  5. Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik
  6. House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds
  7. The Red Wolf Conspiracy by Robert VS Redick
  8. Last Argument of Kings by Joe Abercrombie
  9. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
  10. Anathem by Neal Stephenson

I’m not quite sure how the eligibility for this works, given that Making Money, The Empire of Ivory and The Name of the Wind were first published in 2007; but that aside, I will be interested to see what, if any, correspondence there turns out to be with the BSFA Award shortlist, when that’s announced in January. (Get your nominations in now, folks!)
