Best Novels Read in 2017

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
