Beyond 20000 - The 2008 Fiction Season Overview

BEYOND 20000 - The 2008 Fiction Season Overview

After 900 odd one-dayers, close to 200 tests and a lot of Twenty-20 one-offs here and there, this is combined from Not Free SF Reader and Free SF Reader. Note that the blogspot blog counts are usually wrong as far as I can see, but somewhere in the area. Hence, these are different being the actual numbers compiled programatically.

Likely xmas 2009 makes it before 30000, speaking of favorites, I would think, and a reasonable favorite.

As usual, remembered a few more books I had read this year, and still have a bunch of Agatha Christie, Doctor Who and Hardy Boys not done.

Lying around unread now includes a lot of old magazines (FSF, Aurealis, Analog, a few Asimov's), Australian anthologies, Year's Best (almost all the horror/fantasy flavour) and other assorted anthologies, and a bunch of collections, as well as many a garden variety as well as hero novel, particularly of the Marvel sort. Plus the
usual assortment of SF and fantasy novels old and newish.

In all but the first, the numbers are the average out of 5 and the total count.
