Now the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its Queen, a Witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. Regarding your list, I agree with most, especially ‘The Windup Girl”‘ – that year was an especially good year for sci-fi as well, and so I would definitely swap oyt Miéville’s “Perdido Street Station” for his much more thought-provoking “The City and the City”, which I just can’t get out of my head to this date. The only other author in this group of nine who ever got any recognition of any kind in terms of awards was David Drake, and that was about as skimpy as it gets, given that he’s had one of the steadiest and most successful careers in the history of fantasy and science fiction.

The only other author in this group of nine who ever got any recognition of any kind in terms of awards was David Drake, and that was about as skimpy as it gets, given that he’s had one of the steadiest and most successful careers in the history of fantasy and science fiction. A mysterious phone call sets her on a collision course with danger as she races to save a young female elf.
