Here is my short list of favorite novels read in 2017, provided in no particular order.
Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay. In my mind this is a modern fantasy classic.
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell. In addition to reading this wonderful book I met David Mitchell at the World Fantasy Convention this year and I was fascinated and inspired by our all-too-short conversation.
The Non-Existent Knight & The Cloven Viscount by Italo Calvino. Not a recent title but a recent find for me.
The Steel Remains by Richard K. Morgan
