|Some of the books discussed here!|
Last year I wrote a post called "Most Interesting SF/F Novels of 2016" instead of a traditional "Best of" or "Favorites" list like I did for 2015. As I explained with my post on TV of 2017, there's something a bit presumptuous about a "Best of" list considering that there's a lot of great stuff I haven't personally experienced. Nobody can get to everything, after all.
So this year I thought I'd entirely forego the traditionally bombastic claims and settle for a post on some books published in 2017 that I felt were interesting. I'm not ranking these, since each is interesting for different reasons, although careful readers will be able to discern my favorites. This list is also focused on my reading in science fiction and fantasy. I do read other stuff (especially philosophy books), and you can find see what I've been reading on my Goodreads profile. While you're there, please feel free to add me as a friend!
You may also notice that I'm not posting this until mid-February of 2018. I got a bit behind on my reading schedule (one book on this list is responsible for most of it!), and then I got a bit behind on my blogging. Alas, I also have a job and other non-blog things going on. But here I am at at last! So without further ado, some interesting science fiction and fantasy books of 2017!
