Best science fiction of 2005, as chosen by the contributors to the sf site. I’ve read about a third of these books. The others are often very hard to find in print in the US or in libraries. I’ve never had an argument with any of the “Top Ten” selections in any years. To make this list, a novel has to be very well written.
I saw The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana by Umberto Eco on the list. Fill me in on him, folks. Doesn’t he write Catholic religious fantasy or something?
